"Just One Friend" is the story of Alabama Long, who exists in a part of the warn-torn country that is surviving, but is only doing so based on a set of very stringent rules. One of those rules is that each person who lives there is only allowed to have one friend. In fact, a device implanted in here heel actually asks for the name of that one friend. The process for getting a friend is pretty intricate and interesting in itself. Understandably, Alabama doesn't like these rules and wants to find a way to change them. There is a sinister ruling body where she lives and the task before her isn't an easy one.
There are love interests, alliances, and trust issues in this fascinating young adult novel that definitely kept my interest from the opening pages. I loved that author June Shaw had her two granddaughter's write this story with her as I think that it added an authenticity to it with regards to the youth angst particularly where it comes to friendship themes. A very well written book and would definitely recommend.
Alabama, is a shy girl who believes that one could have more than one friend in order to survive. This story truly sticks with you and I don't want to give everything away. The writing is clear and intriguing with characters you get attached too. Check it out!
The hierarchy is made up of such ominous titles: the Torturer, Cleaver, Guards, Destroyers, and Choosers.
Sadly, Alabama is only allowed one friend, just as the title insinuates, and having to choose between her dog and her grandmother? How can that be done? In real life that would be like having to choose between water and air. Alabama is determined to escape bondage and spare her grandmother by any means necessary.
At times I felt bad for the characters; living a hand to mouth existence trying not to be found, and the way Alabama relished any semblance of fresh air and freedom she could find. I really admired her sense of honor and duty.
There were moments of sadness, I thought, and hopes that one day I will not live in a dystopic future like this where people are fighting over scarce resources and are controlled by the government. Worthwhile reading!
