Subversion by Ruhi Parikh
IT IS THE YEAR 2064, and Washington, D.C., is divided into the Rich and the Poor. The Rich bathe in their luxuries and chastise those that they believe are below them. And the Poor have been forced to endure their morbid lives ever since the end of the nationwide war, with no light seeming to peer at the end of the tunnel. As quiet and respectful as they are, they also resent every nook and cranny of D.C., of the haughty Rich, and of the self-imposed President Remington who is willing to do whatever it takes to bring the country out of its everlasting economic despair. And as much as they want to rebel and fight for a better life, they know they will be shot and killed if they dared to do so. Blaire Cohen is a nineteen-year-old Poor woman who despises how the Poor are treated daily. She and her family labor for the government, mining from the crack of dawn to dusk. Everyday she dreams of escaping the atrocious city with her family, willing to give them the life they deserve. But that is until she gets kidnapped by a mystifying organization determined to destroy the treacherous government . . . and determined for her to join, too. Blaire begins to embark on a life oozing with the unknown. Dangerous decisions are present at every corner she encounters, and she must choose wisely, for the wrong one will lead to imminent consequences. Perfect for fans of Suzanne Collins and Veronica Roth, book one of this heart-pounding dystopian series will have you at the edge of your seat until the very last page.
