Hunger games meets Handmaids Tale!!

As an avid reader, I normally speed/skim read most fiction stories... but this shocking, drama filled page turner made me absorb all of the stories nooks and crannies!!! By the end of the book I wanted to raise my fist at all the injustice toward Women in our own reality 👊🏾
Keep up the great work JL Park!

Phenomenal Intense Read

A phenomenal intense read that takes you through the world that Reed lives in. She goes through a lot that breaks her down but deep down she has the will to be strong. This is the first book in the series and I am patiently waiting to read more to find out how Reed will takeover Greybrook.

I am an avid reader ( 5 or 6 books a week) and am always looking for an exciting new writer.
J.L. Park is exactly that.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and cannot wait to read the sequel.
