I do not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing free books from publishers & authors. Therefore, I am under no obligation to write a positive review, only an honest one.
An awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A very professionally written Dystopian book. It was extremely easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great description list of unique characters, settings, facts etc. to keep track of. This could also make another great Dystopian movie, an animated cartoon, or better yet a mini TV series. It wasn’t as exciting as I hope so I will only rate it at 3/5 stars.
Thank you for the free author (s); ARC; Exquisite Darkness Press; Booksprout; PDF book.

Bernadette is a wise, elderly woman with beats. Sleepwater Static is her story. The strength and courage that it took over the years to endure racism, political gain, drugs, riots, abuse, murder, homeless, death, betrayal, lgbtq and much more.
Sleepwater is on the run once again from the government who are determined to use them as lab rats. Bernadette is in charge of the group trying to keep them safe. Even more so since half pint has joined there group.
You begin to feel them as part of your family feeling their happiness, pain, fear and desperation.
This series would be an excellent mini series!
Fake news. Toddler tantrum. Loved it!
I strongly recommend this series for anyone who likes dystopian.
Thank you BookSprout and the talented author for an incredible complimentary copy in exchange for my honest opinion.
The small group's flight is complicated by the advanced pregnancy of one of its members. Bernadette is old and arthritic, but she does her best to keep the group safe while at the same time dealing with her own emotions and her return to her earlier home area. Bernadette's story is a complex one, well-told here.
This review is based on an advanced review copy provided by the author. The opinions are my own.
Hutson slips from the present--a group of fugitive adults hiding out in an abandoned cabin while one of their members labors with childbirth--to letters and events from the main character, Bernadette’s, past. The characters, who can each spin a magical “beat” with their words, are unique and distinct. Huston weaves an honest portrayal of a found-family without slipping into the stereotypes of many ensemble casts. Like the “beats” themselves, this story oozes with intricate subtlety and pacing that slips between languishing summer and biting action.
5 out of 5 stars!
