I was given a copy by the author, David Estes, in exchange for an honest review. I loved this book! This is a great story with strong characters. The lead character is a young girl who faces the choice of living under the strict laws of her tribe and rebelling. The story is set in a post-apocalyptic society and is the first in a series. Several tribes and peoples are living in a harsh world and have learned to deal with it all in different ways. I fully plan on reading them all, as well as the sister series. A new favorite author. Due to the content I would recommend for high school age and up. A book for either gender. I give this book 5 stars.
