‘Take Me Tomorrow’ isn't about tomo, the massacre or the government crackdown, though. It’s about a feisty teenage girl named Sophia Gray struggling to understand the complicated world around her. Sophia barely remembers her past and appears to live more comfortably than the average citizen because her father is employed by the State and shielded from the injustices of the government.
Sophia's life takes a U-turn after she meets Noah, a mysterious young man on the run with a tragic past. Sophia is challenged to open her eyes to the injustice in the world but fears Noah’s influence is drawing her friends and family into a dangerous conspiracy against the State. Sophia and Noah share a connection, but their strong personalities clash, inhibiting the romance but not the attraction. Frustrated by all the secrecy, Sophia must trust her instincts on whether or not to assist Noah and her friends in their covert activities. Sophia is reminiscent of Sarah Connor in ‘Terminator,’ an everyday woman prodded by a passionate rebel to challenge her beliefs and fight for a brighter future.
‘Take Me Tomorrow’ is a fast-paced, character-driven thriller that drops the reader into the middle of a simmering American revolution guided by a well-developed but unknowing protagonist who's as unpredictable and complex as the plot. Hopefully, readers of ‘Take Me Tomorrow’ will clamor for a follow-up novel, because as interesting as Sophia’s present is, her future is even more intriguing.
This was the first novel I have read by Shannon Thompson, and I enjoyed it from cover to cover. She deviates often from the traditional YA dystopian formula from the moment the story begins. While there is romance, it is treated as almost a side effect of the life and death situation the characters find themselves rather than the impetus of a character's self-discovery found so often in other similar stories.
To her credit, Ms. Thompson never forces her own personal opinions on the reader regarding any of the sensitive issues she addresses, instead she allows the reader to draw his or her own conclusions.
While the pace was excellent, I found myself wishing there had been slightly more back story. Several questions are left unanswered such why had the government restricted movement to the extent that they had. What is the government's motivation? What truly happened to Sophia's mother? I am hopeful a sequel might be published at a later date to provide more insight and better round out the villains.
Fine-lines were walked around matters of legal/illegal and right/wrong in the story, as the characters grow and learn about the world around them, and I greatly appreciate the careful (but frank) dealing with the issue of drug addiction.

This was truly a unique read! I love my dystopian worlds and while some can blend together, that definitely wasn't the case in Take Me Tomorrow.Read more
