"This book would be good for those that enjoyed the Hunger Games!” ~ Cover 2 Cover Blog
"When I read the first page, I did not anticipate that I would be finishing the book that night, but I did. I had to. I didn’t care that I was up until 3:00AM." ~ It's Jeanette
"I loved the Hunger Games Trilogy. I am happy to say that I have found another YA book trilogy with some similarities, that is just as exciting, yet with a completely different story!" ~ Connect with your Teens through Pop Culture and Technology
Ima is just a teenage girl trying to make it in The Dome, an encapsulated, 5-mile radius of downtown Chicago that remains after natural disaster has overtaken most of the earth. When she meets a hooded figure named Vaughn at a party, he takes her on a whirlwind escape that jolts her from her current reality into Silicon City, where humans are upgraded, currency is clout, and bionic eyes are the only way to get information among the glass and metal spiraling buildings that dot the skyline. Oh, and the year is 2198, not 2052 like she thought it was.
But this new city comes with dangers of its own, from degenerates to replications, from hostile hashes to a dictator who seems determined to control the population. To top it all off, Ima has to find some way to get back to The Dome to save her best friend Dash before the powers of Silicon City find a way to destroy it.
Something sinister is brewing in Silicon City, and Ima is determined to figure out how to stop it. Along the way, she will have to give up parts of herself to save the ones she loves. Can she survive the future long enough to fix the past?
This novel is 62,000 words (roughly 275 pages) and contains new material from the previous version: 3 additional chapters, one extended scene, and a new epilogue.
Trying to be objective
I love a fast paced story, yet reading smaller chapters at a time is super convenient. Ima/Cinder is the kind of warrior more women should read about. Who doesn't love a strong, vivid female protagonist to root for? The action has the nice acceleration of a movie, slowing down at certain points so you can let go of the breath you didn't know you were holding. And really I was watching a mental movie of sorts, since Leonelle wrote what she wants her readers to envision for the most part. My only complaint is that I was disappointed when the pages ran out. A great start to the Socialpunk series!
