Those Who Rise (The Revolutionaries, #1)
Sixteen-year-old Taylor Jessup knows where her loyalties should lie. She is a Founder, one of the highest-ranking members of her society, and she is engaged to the atheist who will become its Leader. There is no greater honor at BradCom, where families are divided by religious castes and faith-based alliances.
But there is a secret that could tear her world apart: a photogr...more
I am seriously confused by this. But right from the start, I want to say that this was a very pleasant read which surprised me. However, there are certain things I need/want to point out, but I would say that those are mostly minor things. I’m certainly going to read the rest of the series because the end was just shocking, and I need to find out more.
Oh, and did I forget to mention that the cover is ...more

For a book that is recommended for readers 16-years-old and older, it reads more like for someone who is in their very early teens. I got to chapter three before giving up because I got very tired of the main character making a big deal of not wanting to kiss her fiance despite the fact they would be married in less than a year. All-in-all, I just did ...more

I would definitely read this again! This book was a little slow at the very beginning, but it definitely picked up pace and had twists and surprises. I was pleased with how accurately the characters responded to their situations. In some books, life-altering situations occur and the characters are upset for a moment, but then they brush it off and forget about it, which isn’t realistic. Not in this book! Jess ...more
First of all I would like to give thanks to author @jdoloresperry for allowing me the opportunity to be able to review her book.
Ok. Ahhh! , where do I start? Captivating. Engaging. Unpredictable. Those are the words that describe this book. Before anything, I would like to say that the following opinions are all my own:)
My expectations for a good Christian dystopian book where, I must admit, not so high. The majority of dystopian books have similar story development and are somewhat predict ...more
I really enjoyed learning about Taylor's past and who she is. Throughout the novel, she embarks on a journey of self-discovery and learns about those around her. I applaud Taylor for standing up for herself, even when eve ...more
