She does pay attention to her "inner voice" which has been her source of inspiration for years. The only other person she is close to is an elderly woman named Abby at the Senior Center.
A story of transitioning from living in residences to that of residing in a family is a huge part of this story. Imagine trying to explain a family to some that have no concept of that idea!
Lots more in this one but a solid read and most highly recommended.
Another part coming?
One caveat: the impure thoughts of the villains, who live governed by their passions, are described in some detail, which may be problematic for sensitive persons. However, those passages are brief, stoppable, and not gravely dangerous.
The plot follows Liberty's journey, from her required contribution to the Regimen's efforts of socialism to that of a breeder for the good of the Earth, and the possibility that a better life might be available away from the preponderance of security cameras and electrified fences that effectively confine her community and essentially control the known population.
Masterful fades from one scene into another add to the drama of her escapes, both from within the fence, and from the world outside the fence. The tireless workings of her inner voice, known throughout the text as an Italicized 'MyFriend', eventually lead to an astonishing revelation while craftily leaving the door open for more of this captivating tale. Once I became accustomed to my new 'reader' this book was hard to put down. Definitely a five star tome.
A must read for teens or even impressionable pre-teens who might some day wonder, "What if...?"
Re-education and/or elimination awaits each dissenter. Nevertheless, subversion flourishes. The resistance travels underground within the cities, settles in far flung colonies, and bores within the power structure spreading their poisonous doctrine of personal dignity, individual freedom and family life.
Liberty, a genetically modified, nineteen year old retirement home worker, befriends the elderly, treating them as family. “Her Friend,” an inner voice, leads her down a path of dissatisfaction with the regime’s plans for her future. When the regime and the resistance detect Liberty’s dissent, the hunt begins. Electronic surveillance records and tracks Liberty and other runaways, but dissenters attempt to frustrate these deadly video games. Can they snatch Liberty before the regime closes in?
Follow Liberty’s fortunes as she and her allies reinvent the Scarlet Pimpernel in a futuristic setting. Chasing Liberty deserves a place on the bookshelf among dystopian novels such as The Hunger Games, 1984, The Brave New World and Myles Connolly’s Mr. Blue.
Good news, a sequel nears completion.
