In a terrifying future world, four girls must depend on each other if they want to survive.

Now that best friends Louisa, Rosie, Evelyn, and Maddie know the truth -- or at least the danger they're in -- the girls have run away from their "safe" country retreat. But life is riskier than ever, and Rosie still doesn't know who she can trust.

According to Barnes & Noble, the age for this book is 10-14 years. It might actually be a couple of years below that. This book is extremely easy to read.

There are 4 books in the series and each is told from a different character's point of view. That doesn't bother me but the seeming change in personality of the characters from book to book does. I understand that each book is a completely different perspective, but it comes across as implausible when a very rough character in one book beco

This is the second book in the series, which really should be read in order. The four roommates will each have their own narrative, as the story progresses. Although this book gives enough information that it will be an exciting read on its own, it is much more suspenseful if you have read Tomorrow Girls: Behind the Gates. Book 1 was Louisa's story, and this second one is Rosie's. The girls' personalities continue to build throughout this volume, and we find out why Rosie is so alert for danger, ...more

a very good book! I love how they put the books from different point of views! it makes it more realistic.
Also mediocre like the first one. I'm going to keep reading anyway cause it's so easy and such a great break from the intense academic stuff I have to read for school.

I enjoyed the second installment in the Tomorrow Girls series and am eagerly looking forward to the third, although I did find the plot about Rosie being an illegal alien who's family purchased new id bracelets on the black market unbelievable, simply because of two things- her accent would give her away and also a school that had so carefully researched the taking of America's elite wouldn't have accepted her as there'd be limited background on her family. Still a great story though.

The book is set in the future world with four best friends Louisa, Rosie, Evelyn, and Maddie who must depend on each other to survive. Now that they know the the truth about County Manor School they go on an adventure and don't know who they can trust. Very good book if you like outdoor adventurer books with a very intriguing plot twist. Will Rosie's secrets get out?

I read this book as well, I don't like starting a series and not finishing it. I got it from the library and could not put it down. It was great, you probably would want to read the first book so that you understand the plot line fully. I would also recommend this book to others.
I enjoyed this story for middle graders. I think the first book was a bit better, but this was still enjoyable.

Tomorrow Girls: Run for Cover by Eva Gray is the second book that’s part of the “Tomorrow Girls” series, the thing that I love most about this book is that it’s about adventure and survival. Basically, the book starts off with Rosie being sent to a boarding school to be safe from the war, and the school is called CMS. Over there she met Maddie, Louisa, and Evelyn, who were her roommates. They soon found out they were being held hostage and were kept as prisoners of the Alliance. When they escape ...more

Revised version posted on Luxury Reading and shortened version posted on my blog, Books and a Cup of Tea.

When Louisa, Rosie, Evelyn, and Maddie learn the truth about Country Manor School, Rosie finds herself running once again. This time, though, it's because CMS has a secret - it belongs to the Alliance, the opposing team to the War raging around them.

Now, self-appointed leader Rosie finds herself not only trying to protect herself, but three other girls as they flee the school. Rosie does per

The book Run For Cover, book two in the Tomorrow Girls series by Eva Gray, is an interesting book. I liked the book because of the way Evelyn, Rosie, Louisa, and Maddie don't all get along but when they escape the Alliance they sort of do help each other out. The main character ,Rosie, is my least favorite character in this book because of the way she judges everyone. I know she is trying to be safe but she is sometimes risking the groups life's because she wants to find her sister. I would reco ...more
Rosie, Evelyn, Louisa, and Maddie are four young teenage girls who were sent to a remote boarding school to keep them safe from the war. But the girls discovered a terrible secret - their boarding school was run by the enemy, the Alliance, who tricked parents into sending their children there to be used as hostages - and decided to escape.

This book picks up right where book one, Behind the Gates, left off, as the girls decide to try and find their way to Chicago to reunite with their parents and

I love Rosie's character through out the book, defiant, knowing, and undeniably right She is plagued throughout the book with thoughts of Wren, her sister, and distrusts Drew..for a while.

Although this is a good book, it isn't as emotionally captivating as others. But don't let my lone, or anyone's lone review stop you from reading this book, I would look at multiple reviews before making a decision. And as a reader, perhaps why I wasn't as "satisfied" with the book as I could have could because

A couple of weeks ago, I read the book series "Tomorrow Girls" in English without using a dictionary. It has a 4-book series and 4 different main character speak in the each different book. So, when I started reading the second one, I really got confused because in the second one, the main character was different from the first book.

The book series was so interesting that I couldn't put down my Kindle, and I finished reading all of them for 2 weeks. The story belongs to the near future novel and

A great addition to the first book in the series. This one is told from the perspective of Rosie, the girl who most think is too cold towards the others. But once readers hear her story, you begin to understand why she is the way she is. She's keeping secrets that could get her and her family in trouble. And it makes her that much more relatable because instead of this tough character, she's actually afraid. Afraid of everything, all the time. She just tries to hide it from the others to act tou ...more

The second book in the Tomorrow Girls series proves to be just as exciting as the first. This book is told from the point of view of Rosie so you get a different insight into who she really is. This book finds the girls on the run from their boarding school and back to their hometown of Chicago. Along the way they run into some guys from the boys boarding school and together they make their escape, straight into a training camp of the enemy. They manage to escape on a food truck, but without the ...more

Run for Cover is the second book in the Tomorrow Girls series and I liked it much better than the first book. While the first book is a little dull until the last 50 pages, Run for Cover starts out with a fast paced escape and doesn't let up until the end. I thought Rosie was a more interesting character than Louisa and her backstory is better. The near captures and escapes are executed a little too easily, but it's what the story going. I wasn't planning on finishing the series after the first ...more

Former roommates Louisa, Rosie, Evelyn, and Maddie have run away from their remote school after discovering it was run by Alliance sympathizers who plan on ransoming the students to their rich parents. But along the way, the girls run into several boys on a survival expedition. The boys claim they want to escape with the girls, but Rosie doesn't trust them, especially not with the secret she's been hiding.

This second installment in the Tomorrow Girls series is narrated from Rosie's point of view

This book was just as good as the first one if not better. It has the same main characters, Louisa, Maddie, Evelyn, and Rosie, that stil are on the same mission. This book also has great detail and amazing events that happen. The ending to this book is more of a cliff-hanger than the last one. The author does a great job expressing feeling and emotions in this book along with imagery. This book would be an amazing book to read if you are a tween or teenage girl.

Tomorrow Girls: Run for Cover by Eva Gray is about Rosie who is at a school when her and her 3 roommates escape because they find out that the school belongs to the Alliance which is the wrong side of the war. The book was pretty boring at some points but at others, it was kinda intense. I really didn't like the book because sometimes i would find myself just scanning over the words because it didn't really have my attention. I wouldn't recommend the book to anyone, unless you like this kind of ...more

I loved this book!! I liked it more then the first one. The catch of this story was that it's at Rosie's point of view and not Louisa's. My favorite parts of the book are when they were at this small little shack and wake up to be hearing Mrs. Brewster their principal at CMS. She wanted to have a alliance meeting. My other favorite part was at the ending when someone of the seven, Drew, Maddie, Louisa, Rosie, Alonzo, Evelyn, and Ryan disappear into the alliance's hands... or at least they think.

I think that the first one , tomorrow girls Behind the gates, is better then this one the second one. I mean yeah they escape and one of the characters tells her secert to them. But the first one had more action and really made me keep ready. Although this one is good it just didn't pull me keep reading. I do like it it when Eva Gray has one character telling the story from their perspective in Tomorrow Girls Behind the gates, then has another character telling this one from their perspective.

I did not expect this book to be any different than the first but I was wrong! The pace picks up and it is told from a different girl's perspective. I found my anxiety level rising as the his continued their escape and the plot got even more twisted at the end. I must say that these are a good read for the girls who are too young for a series like The Hunger Games but gives them a good introduction to dystopian novels. I actually am looking forward to reading the rest and sharing them with my go ...more
