Read in April, 2010

You don't expect a heart-stopping thriller to make you think, but this book does! Though I kid around that the world would be a different place with women completely in charge, Dave Patneaude's book reminds us that some women are just as horrible as some men! In a near-future world where men are in the minority because of a horrible epidemic, Kellen is coming of age. He's your average 14 year old, loving baseball and being outdoors and experiencing his first crushes -- but he also stumbles onto a crushing secret that forces him to put himself at risk to save his father. . .and perhaps the world.

Each chapter begins with a epitaph for one of the boys/men killed in the pandemic and the writing in those pieces is stunningly powerful and beautiful.

Disclaimer: Dave and I are in the same critique group but that does not change my high praise of this thought-provoking YA novel.
