About the Author
On any given day, you might find Stone pounding away at a keyboard in sunny Miami, contemplating waves, contemplating life and dreaming up more exciting stories to share with readers. Except Sunday's of course. Sunday's are God's day, so you'll often find her making her best "joyful noise" with her local church praise team.
When not pounding poor fingers to bloody nuggets and reinventing the definition of eye strain, C.B. Stone enjoys living it up, doing the family thing, the kid thing, and the friend thing. And in her downtime, reading the minds of fans.
Also being invisible. Being invisible is fun.

This is a very fast-paced read which is good and bad. While the plot flowed quickly but the events weren't too convoluted, a lot went on that I couldn't just fully get behind. Like the time--months go by from one paragraph to the next it seems. And the events just line up ever so nicely.
Sinna's best friend is Jacob, but friendships are rare. Not so rare are orphans, as many parents are taken for whatever reason. It's illegal to love, but not to love the children. But the Elite doesn't want anyone happy.
It's also illegal to hope and to BELIEVE, especially in a deity. Books are banned and most people can't read. It's just like...everyone just exists unless they're a soldier in the Elite or torturing kids who have hope. Rehabilitation is part of that process, to force a person (typically a younger one) to stop believing. Stop hoping.
It's a Christian book and Jacob tries to persuade Sinna to believe in a higher power, but her atheistic views make total sense.
Why the Old World was destroyed is left in the air. Why there are three explicit Elite groups (that are each in charge of about 5 territorial spaces) is not explained. Everyone is contained in their territory but people don't even recognize each others' faces. It's desolate and confusing in a way. There isn't school but there is indoctrination.
There is a girl at the orphanage who helps Sinna and is all cryptic. I have a feeling she's a prophet but I don't plan on reading the other books to determine if my suspicion is correct.
And there is a soldier who helps her for seemingly no reason at all. It's just....a bit too nice.
Good storyline. :-) I keep thinking 🤔 it reminds me of a movie (which I loved) but can't come up with a title. So, that's a great compliment. 😀
It was hard to connect with the characters as of yet with it's short length. Interestingly, Miriam intrigued me the most. 😊
I hate cold & snow. I hated her walking through it! It was cool imagining the buildings of her time. I want to throw in my ending thoughts. I was excited and angry at the same time!! 😱😡 We hit the climax and a revelation then BOOM the end! Veerrryyy happy I already have book 2 downloaded.
My star ratings include these 5 elements:
1★ story line
1★ engaging characters
1★ use of world building/descriptive
1★ being well edited or narrated
1★ the ending
Don’t seek love, don’t engage in war.
And above all else, don’t Believe.
Rehabilitation is a dystopian novel that at first reminded me of several others. but the farther into the story I got the more it stood on its own. The world as we know it has ended and now people are expected to not believe in anything and of course, we have elites and then everyone else.
Sinna is our main character and she has a best friend named Jacob. They are both orphans and have come to rely on each other a lot in recent years in order to keep surviving. All of this changes one day when Jacob is suddenly taken away for still showing that he cares about things.
Overall I really found myself enjoying this story. It is very fast-paced and I was not expecting the ending at all. I will say a lot of it was rather unbelievable but in this story, I was okay with that because of how much I had grown to care about the characters. I’m still debating on if I want to continue the story or not, but it is one that if I need a quick read I might check back into in the future.
When I started this I wasn't sure how I would like it. I've become somewhat burned out on Dystopian stories recently, but I really wanted to read and review this since I've had it sitting waiting for a few weeks now. And I am so glad I did!
Sinna lives in a society where belief in God has been strictly outlawed and those who continue to believe must be rehabilitated to trust only in science. Sinna's father was taken years before when he failed his trial and her mother went crazy with grief. Now love itself is banned, nearly at least. Even once you have chosen a partner you aren't supposed to love too deeply. Love leads to war and war is bad news.
Sinna and her best friend Jacob go out to the Old World searching for anything valuable. Jacob wants to find a church, but they have yet to do so. When Jacob is taken to Rehabilitation Sinna is devastated and Jacob's younger sister Samantha is taken and given to another family-one that plays by the rules.
The writing in this novel was beautiful. There were a few missing words here and there, small things like to and a, but that's to be expected. I really enjoyed being in Sinna's head. I didn't find her over the top like I do most of the protagonists in dystopias recently. Her struggles were realistic for a girl trying to hold together the small semblance of normal she has been able to find.
The set up for the After and Old worlds was very interesting. The idea of the Elites and the wars that wiped out the belief in God and the new role of science in society seems almost too realistic. I like the fact that Stone kept the novel short and to the point. I feel like many dystopias could be much shorter if they just got to the point and this one does just that.
The ending is a perfect cliff hanger and I cannot wait to read the final two installments in this trilogy. I am eagerly awaiting the release of book two! If you enjoy dystopian tales, or good writing in general, then you should go pick this book up now!
