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

Marooned, by Joseph Paul Haines writing as P.J. Druce, is a tightly-plotted dystopian future science fiction fantasy about a girl who fights . . . oh wait, you’re thinking The Hunger Games, right? Not quite. Alyssa Jordan, a.k.a. “Punk” is a vicious cage-match sort of street fighter. She is also the daughter of wealthy, ultra-high-status parents who are immortal.

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

P.J. attended college at one point, but after experiencing a childhood trauma involving the word, "Lecture," skipped too many classes in order to read books that weren't sold in the coll ...more
