I really just loved this book. I got it immediately when I saw that Hillary Jordan had written a second book because I enjoyed reading her first, Mudbound. I don't think I was enamored by Mudbound, but it was my kind of read. This was not! This book came out of left field for me. I feel like it was a different author, except the writing was well in both. Jordan kept this book alive with thought and intrigue. The story line propelled me to think about it almost all day. Especially with elections looming, I found this book to be eerily not that far from the truth - or the way I see the potential our society could go. I feel like this book, above so many others I have read, would be fantastic as a book club book or a book to discuss in a high school/college class. I'm going to see her talk in a few weeks and I can't wait to learn more.
