In 2132, “We the people …” means nothing, and it hasn’t for a hundred years.

Like all the citizens of the American Union, eighteen-year-old Erianna Keating is not to ask questions. She is not to believe anything except what the A.U. tells her. More importantly, she’s not supposed to know what she doesn’t know, nor that she’s a pawn.

Like everyone else, though, she is, and li

I want to thank Emi Gayle for providing me with an ARC of this book to read and review. Receiving this book for free has in no way influenced my opinion or review.

I will let you know right off that I love Emi Gayle and her writing. Her triology, The 19th Year, is one of my all time favorite reads in the last year. So when she offered me a copy of this book to read and review, I was not only flattered but so excited to jump at the chance to read something else by her!

Such an emotional and deeply involved plot that keeps you interested the whole way through. Totally loved it and desperate to read BK#2

I received an e-arc of Perry Road direct from the Author Emi Gayle in exchange for my honest review. I was also kindly asked by Emi to be part of her blog tour, to which I obviously replied "Yes please!"
The cover represents the book well, as the main character Erianna is facing the wall along the Road to Perry Road. So Would I pick this bo

Eighteen years I've waited for this moment. Everything is going to change, and that's what I want.

I was so delighted to be reading something new from Emi Gayle. I absolutely love her The 19th Year series, so to read something away from that so exciting. And I wasn't the least bit disappointed. Perry Road is very different to her previous books, but equally as good.

The core of Perry Road is quite political. The U.S.A is split in two. Like everyone her age Erianna will head to Perry Road and j

I received this book, from the author, in exchange for an honest review.

Perry Road was just what I needed to break out of a reading slump a few weeks ago. Once I started reading, I didn’t want to do anything else. Food? What’s that? Leaving the house? Who needs it?!

Erianna, the main character, is so incredibly naïve, ALMOST to the point of being annoying. I think it’s partially the way she was raised and partially just her. She wants to please people and never stir the pot. She wants to believ

ok, time to get series... I am in love with this author's 19th Year series, so I immediately felt the need to read her newest series. She's an amazing writer, so I knew that part would be good. What I didn't expect was to be completely in love with this series, right from the beginning. I am definitely putting this one into the dystopian, post apocalyptic type story genre. And this world building is so well done, I don't even know how to say how great it is. I seem to be really loving some of th ...more
I got a copy in exchange for an honest review.

I have read the first 2 books in Emi her 19th year series and I was really excited when I heard she was writing a dystopia book. When I finally got around to reading it, it had been some time since I last read a dystopia book and this book reminded me again why I love the dystopia genre.

Perry Road is a really enjoyable book, while taking a slightly different road than most dystopia books out there. Perry Road had that keep reading feel, when I starte

Erianna looks forward to turning eighteen. Her life will begin, she will be tested for a career and escape the poverty of living with a fluke mother. She will be able to have things and live in a nicer home. At least, that is what the government tells her.

Her eighteenth birthday was a horrible day. Anything and everything bad that could happen does. Her friends walk away from her and leave her in a horrible situation. Her trip to the red house on Perry Road is also tragic for her hopes and dream

The year is 2132. Nothing is as you remember it. There is now the American Union and the United States. Two separate countries. A fifteen foot wall separates them. It's also Erianna's eighteenth birthday. The day she becomes an adult. She will register for a job. It's the law. Then she will be required to go to the house listed on her email. Once there she will be trained and readied for the world. Somehow though things don't end up going as they should. Eri, or Anna as she is now known, will f ...more

I really enjoyed this book. In fact thinking about it now, I’m eager for the next installment. This was interesting. Even though dystopian follows some of the same themes, this was told in a new way. Also a plus this book

Perry Road really is an awesome read.

I think the world pulled me in at first, more than the characters. Gayle has done a bang up job of creating the two separate countries in what once was the U.S.A.. The set up of Perry Road and how it is run really intrigued me. Finding out about the secrets that are hidden beneath the surface intriqued me even more. The author also made it believable how the system is falling apart and why so many of the citizens don't see it. (or refuse to) Won't say anymor

Emi Gayle just wants to be young again. She lives vicariously through her youthful characters, while simultaneously acting as chief-Mom to her teenaged son and searching for a way to keep her two daughters from ever reaching the dreaded teen years.

Ironically, those years were some of Emi's favorite times. She met the man of her dreams at 14, was engaged to him at 19, married him at 20 and she's s
