“Hogrefe builds a future world of adventure, chaos, and mystery but ties it back to the true history of the American dream, drawing in the reader to share Portia’s quest.”

The Revisionary is a dystopian with heart. Set in a time when the government uses ignorance to keep its populace under control, Portia is determined to learn the truth—for her brother and her country. Her fierce determination is a timely reminder that some things are worth fighting for, especially love, truth, and freedom.

The Revisionary offers a brilliant exploration of what could be without freedom of speech, expression, ideas, etc., and the role technology could play in the loss of those freedoms. Set in the near future, the world of Portia Abernathy is intriguing, wonderfully easy to lose yourself in, and reminiscent of those found in the popular Hunger Games and Divergent trilogies. Must read for young and young-at-heart adults alike!

Oppression and rebellion are mixed with patriotism and honor in this unique dystopia. As a fan of The Giver, The Hunger Games, and Bryan Davis' Reapers, I felt at home in this new world. The suspense and unexpected twists made me keep turning the pages, desperate to find out what was going to happen to poor Portia. The Revisionary has earned its place with other popular young adult dystopian books.
