More About the Author
Lisa has no spare time, but if she did she'd use it to tend to her expansive perennial garden, watch medical dramas, take long walks after dark, and teach her cats to play poker. For those of you who might be wondering, she is not, and has never been, a diaper-wearing astronaut. She lives in Milwaukie, Oregon, with her husband, four feline companions, and two giant sequoias.

Cascadia has seceded from the USA. The Great Plains are a wasteland. People want to migrate to Cascadia, but are unable to because of strict population controls. But then people, mostly the poor and socially undesirable, start disappearing. It's said they are moving to California, but are they?
Well, you won't find out in this book. You will have to read the next one. And the next after that.
Results: another installment plan book. It didn't even have a cliffhanger ending. Won't read it, don't care.
The characters are well-developed and easy to care about. Each character has a unique personality and voice. You can tell who's head your in within the first paragraph, even without the name shown at the chapter's title. Each character has their own view of the world and reaction to the circumstances. I'm an older reader and thought I wouldn't be able to connect to the young characters, but they were easy to get to know and like. especially Zoey. I do worry about that girl.
I love science fiction and this series has a unique view of a possible future, which more than satisfies my interest. The style the story is told in also works. In the hands of a less skilled writer, the fact that the chapters are being told from a different character's point of view could cause the story to be choppy or disconnected, but Ms. Nowak handles it well. I into the sixth book in the series and each one gets more exciting as the story moves along.
I highly recommend this series and this book kicks it all off. The story is exciting and believable. The main characters are interesting and sympathetic. And the overall story is captivating. Well done.

I enjoyed this book. The characters are believable but are a bit stereotypical of teens in dystopian books. The plot moves along well. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Book Mouse
Decent. Definitely a Portlanders wet dream. Lacks any real depth, but still very fun and easy to read. Ecotopia and 9 Nations of North America are more engaging.Published 15 months ago by Wyatt K.
