"Stealing Liberty is an action packed novel that you will want to finish in one sitting. Every element in this novel is crafted carefully and done well. When I finished the novel, I wanted to give it a round of applause. Its dystopian-like plot is inviting... it is overall original and refreshing... Every character in this novel, including the minor ones, goes through an immense amount of development... Jennifer Froelich's writing is unarguably impressive; she does an amazing job of keeping you hooked with fast-paced contrasting tones, as well as imagery that you won't be able to get out of your head. This book is not only entertaining, but it is also insightful when it comes to American history. By giving proper respect to the values that the country is founded on, this novel allows you to understand how important these values truly are. I recommend this book to any person who is interested in America, its history, and who wonders what it truly means to be a citizen. This book teaches you that, as an American, you should never take your freedom for granted." (Readersfavorite.com)
"A brilliantly written dystopian novel that will remain in the mind of its readers for a long time... The plot is very well-developed and its depth makes it almost tangible, which is both admirable and scary considering the dystopian story-line isn't that far-fetched. It is original and refreshing... it serves as a reminder that nothing in life should be taken for granted, and that includes liberty. The style of writing approaches these themes in a subtle way, seducing the reader in going deeper into the story and into the lives of each character. Froelich's style is impressive and it makes the story memorable." (Book Traveller)
"...A thrilling action adventure... this story has you turning page after page, desperate to know what happens next! If I didn't have to, I wouldn't have put this book down. It is an easy read, yet unbelievably gripping. Some of the themes running through the books are scary close to reality, built upon real-life concerns and themes within the world, but taken one step further. It is really a masterpiece which not only entertains, but really makes you think...Froelich utilises multiple POVs to her advantage, allowing her to introduce and develop our protagonists into rich characters that are practically leaping out of the book! It is scary-realistic, but this means the reader is able to connect with the book, and there are such a vast array of charcters amongst our protagonist group that you can relate to one, if not many, of them!
I am desperate to know what the fate of our young heroes are - and cannot wait for book 2! Overall I am awarding this book a solid 5*/5 - it was full of exciting twists and turns, and endless nail-biting moments that had me sneaking chapters in wherever I could! I would recommend this to any Maze Runner, Hunger Games, or Legend fans who also enjoy YA. You will not be disappointed - trust me." -- (Sammy' Shelf)
