If you haven't read it yet, I'd highly recommend Never Fall Down. I think I'm going to (finally) read Unwind.

I got Never Fall Down at ALAN- looking forward to reading it at some point.

Unwind is a phenomenal book!!!

Angela Sunshine (angelasunshine) I read Rebel Heart by Moira Young. It's set in a fictional dystopia, but the heroine is fighting against a group who are killing and enslaving people to build a new world their own way.

Mary Beth (lifelovebooks) I read Reached by Ally Condie. Also a dystopia and the last of the Matched trilogy. They were also fighting to create a new and better world and each main character had their own part in the fight.

I can't wait to read Never Fall Down. It looks really great.

Kellee Moye (kelleemoye) Thank you ladies for taking part in December's challenge :)

Angela- I hadn't realized that number 2 had come out - I NEED to get it :)

Mary Beth- I still need to read Crossed and Reached... AND Never Fall Down.
