"Back in the Green world and immediately thrust on an emotional rollercoaster, I couldn't put this book down. Intense and addictive ... the shocks and twists just keep coming!"
author of Counterintuitive, What 4 Million Teenagers Wish We Knew and Birthday Suit
"Greener is a rare treat, a sequel that surpasses the first book and leaves you wanting more."
author of Daughter of Magic and The Gospel According to St. Rage
"A masterpiece of love and loss, friendship and betrayal in a tense, fast-paced and twisting story that challenges the prejudices between nature and science, and the tragic consequences of fanaticism on both sides. Brilliantly written, this story made me laugh, made me cry, and made me think."
author of The Staff of Fire and Bone
"The future may not be so bright for the citizens of Sci City - more like the school of hard knocks. Our genetically modified heroine isn't sure who she can trust in this, another nail-biter from Heather Ransom.

All of the characters and situations are complex and twisted, forcing you to consider all sides and wonder who, if anyone, is really in the right.
Greener shoes is a whole new side to the Green world, with new twists and dangerous plots and more at stake than ever before. I can’t wait for the third!
Lyssa is drawn back to the Stayton farm when her friend Ana Stayton dies from a black market Green enhancement gone wrong. Meanwhile, her new friend Ayva is into Nock, an enhancement to the enhancement from a private, unregulated lab that makes Greens Greener with party-drug side effects … but it also has a dark, dangerous side. And Livvy has a few secrets of her own. Everybody seems to, including Lyssa and Livvy's long-lost mother. Themes of secrecy, loss and regret are woven through the narrative, as well as those of peer pressure, community, and loyalty.
Lyssa thinks she knows about loss, but also recognizes her privilege. She lost her mother as a child, had to give up her first love (who now blames her for his sister's death), and nearly lost her own sister to the virus. In this book, the losses pile up and even wealth and power can't shield her.
I was glad to see that music still plays an important role in Lyssa's life. Her family is after her to choose a practical career, but playing cello is where she really comes alive and feels a connection to her mother. I particularly appreciated the realistic but compassionate portrayal of a college freshman, who feels so much more mature and knowing than she was in high school but is still naive and vulnerable. Lyssa believes she is a better spy than a pro, who is secretly keeping tabs on her and Livvy. Lyssa is unusually susceptible to the attentions of handsome genius Maddax Steele and can't quite bring herself to ask if that's why he's paying attention to her. She takes crazy risks, pulling back before anyone is hurt but with real consequences.
A much bigger plot takes over before Lyssa's personal dramas can be resolved, so there is still much to come in the inevitable 3rd book. I hope she has her cello with her after the disaster; music may be the thing to save her world.
I received an advance review ebook from the publisher.
