Seventeen, by Suzanne Lowe, is a dystopian adventure about something that very well could happen in the future. It is the first book in a series about two sisters in Australia and the challenges they face with love and dignity. The adventure has many twists and turns leaving the reader anxious for the next book. The human spirit is tougher than most people think and the will to survive is very strong. Review by International Writers Inspiring Change. ...5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended for young adult fans of this genre! A fantastic tale of survival and adaptation, this book was engaging until the end! It is somewhat reminiscent of John Marsden's 'The Tomorrow Series', with the teenage Australian protagonists having to quickly find their way in a world that has been drastically changed by a catastrophic event. The story becomes quite dark as they encounter the worst of human nature along the way.
I look forward to reading more from this author!N Starkie
This is a captivating story written in a style that is as crisp as it is interesting. The story starts with gripping sentences, making the reader know that things aren't normal. And not long into the narrative, Lowe captures the severity of the conflict in an arresting way: The author creates a setting that will both delight readers and send shivers down their spines. It is attractive in a dangerous kind of way. Imagine a world without elders, a world in an utter state of devastation, and with teenagers, youngsters and babies left to themselves? This is the kind of world Suzanne Lowe's characters inhabit. Readers will be grabbed by the pathos, the grit, and the flawless and evocative prose. I enjoyed every bit of this story, especially the unpredictability of the plot.
Christian Sia for Readers' Favorite
Suzanne Lowe's writing is compelling, and I enjoyed the vivid descriptions and her world building. She succeeds in awakening powerful emotions in readers, creating characters that are three-dimensional. It is interesting how the desolation of the setting reflects the mood of the key characters at some moments. The plot is gritty and gripping, well-imagined and executed with unusual skill. The dialogues are engaging, and they feel natural. This is a book that made me think a lot of the world depicted in the movie "I am Legend." Seventeen creates a seamless blend of adventure and dystopia, enabling readers to follow the tale of survival of two sisters in a dangerous world. The feeling that anything could go wrong at any moment permeates the entire narrative and the author makes great use of this feeling to drive the plot and keep readers utterly engaged. This is a delightful read indeed.

From the Author
Seventeen is the first book in the Seventeen Series about Lexi and her sister Hadley, two teenagers who are trying to survive in a post-apocalyptic Australia without the benefit of adults to help them.
I decided to write Seventeen, as I wanted to write a story for young adults, about children and teenagers having to survive in a world suddenly vastly different from one they had grown up in. One without adults, computers or any of the luxuries we are used to. Without adult influence, would the rules of society change? This was a scenario I would often discuss and theorise about with my own young adult daughters at the dinner table.
I love reading dystopian and post-apocalyptic stories myself, and I wanted to set my story in Australia, somewhere that is quite isolated and a unique setting for most dystopian stories. I think that the rugged and often harsh landscape of Australia would add to the hardship of the survivors.
The story of Lexi and Hadley and their friends in Jasper's Bay continues in the second novel of the Seventeen Series, called Rage.
I hope you enjoyed reading Seventeen. If you have any questions about Lexi and Hadley or any of my other books, please contact me though my author website at suzanneloweauthor.com
