High above the streets, the skyscrapers in the cities of the American Union exude wealth, luxury, and for the privileged few, immortality. Those with the means to take Communion are immune to the diseases and risks that ravage those who live outside the city walls.

I loved this book, Marooned: The Communion Wars! It's about a 15 year old girl named Punk Jordan, and she's not to happy where she's at, her mom has a major emotional problem, and in her case, cutting herself is a feel good party, her father on the other hand, has no time for her at all, and he's to busy running his city. Punk is going to take communion and live for ever, but when she finds out that her so called father, isn't her real father at all, she then has the temptation to bring him dow...more
​I read this book a while back, so my recollection isn't as great as it could be. (That is my disclaimer.)

​This book reminded me of the Hunger Games a little bit. They both have these strong female leads who do things that they thought themselves incapable of doing for the ones they love.

​Punk Jordan is basically a good person who has the means to do for others and enjoys doing so. At least that's what she tells herself. So what if helping others less fortunate than herself upsets her father? Th...more
Marooned is the story of Alyssa “Punk” Jordan. Punk, although of a higher, wealthy social status, is an unhappy girl. Her mom has severe emotional problems. Her dad, a powerful political player, is controlling and unfeeling towards his wife and daughter. Punk and her mom are virtually prisoners to her father’s agenda. It’s no wonder Punk spends her time fighting in fierce matches. When the illusion of Punk’s world is shattered, she must contend with learning the harsh truths. Betrayal seems to b...more

I have a full review on Amazon here, just wanted to spread the word on a YA Sci-Fi Dystopian novel series. Starts off with a literal bang, and weaves subtle world-building with a "spoiled rich kid's" coming of age in a society valuing immortality over decency to their fellow man, much less themselves when one realizes the price for immortality has far flung effects, much to the main character's chagrin. Punk is fiery, matured and believable 15 year old, given the futuristic setting. Well worth t...more
Once I got about 20 pages in I couldn't put this book down. its fast paced with a great story, I couldn't get enough of Punk or her friends. I can't wait for the second book to come out. My copy had the first chapter of the next book and from what I read I think it will be just as addictive.

I finally convinced my husband to read this book and he also really enjoyed it, and looks forward to the next book. There are so few books that we both enjoy so it is always good to find one that we can talk...more
