REVIEW: Torn Away by Jennifer Brown

Brown, Pierce Brown - Red Rising Trilogy. The Red Rising Trilogy “I live for the dream that my children will be born free,” she says.

Pierce Brown - Red Rising Trilogy

“That they will be what they like. That they will own the land their father gave them.” Guys Lit Wire: CALL ME BY MY NAME by John Ed Bradley. Football in Louisana is almost a religion, and it wasn't any different in the 1970's.

Guys Lit Wire: CALL ME BY MY NAME by John Ed Bradley

Something was different in the 70's though. As a southern state, Louisana still wasn't fully on board with desegregation. Rodney Boulet and his twin sister Angie grew up in a small town where mixing blacks and whites still wasn't an accepted idea. Rodney met Tater Henry on the baseball field when the two played Little League. When Tater, a young black player, boldly stepped on the field, not everyone was thrilled.

As the years passed, Tater and Rodney became true friends. As expected, the team's coaches and players didn't give Tater a warm welcome, but once his speed and quick thinking became evident, he became a valuable member on the field.

Amy Engel

After a brutal nuclear war, the United States was left decimated. A small group of survivors eventually banded together, but only after more conflict over which family would govern the new nation. The Westfalls lost. Fifty years later, peace and control are maintained by marrying the daughters of the losing side to the sons of the winning group in a yearly ritual. Jennifer L. Armentrout   Don’t Look Back. Samantha is a stranger in her own life.

Jennifer L. Armentrout   Don’t Look Back

Until the night she disappeared with her best friend, Cassie, everyone said Sam had it all-popularity, wealth, and a dream boyfriend. Sam has resurfaced, but she has no recollection of who she was or what happened to her that night. As she tries to piece together her life from before, she realizes it’s one she no longer wants any part of. The old Sam took “mean girl” to a whole new level, and it’s clear she and Cassie were more like best enemies. Sam is pretty sure that losing her memories is like winning the lottery. But Cassie is still missing, and the facts about what happened to her that night isn’t just buried deep inside of Sam’s memory-someone else knows, someone who wants to make sure Sam stays quiet.
