IN THE ENCLAVE, YOUR SCARS SET YOU APART, and the newly born will
change the future.
In the future, in a world baked dry by the harsh sun, there are those
who live inside the walled Enclave and those, like sixteen-year-old
Gaia Stone, who live outside. Following in her mother's footsteps
Gaia has become a midwife, delivering babies in the world outside
the wall and handing a quota over to be "advanced" into the privileged
society of the Enclave. Gaia has always believed this is her duty,
until the night her mother and father are arrested by the very people
they so loyally serve. Now Gaia is forced to question everything she
has been taught, but her choice is simple: enter the world of the
Enclave to rescue her parents, or die trying.
Loved the story -- sweet and clean, but kind of slow at first. Strong,
admirable heroine who must make tough decisions in a cruel society.
Full review to come.
Sexuality: Very Mild (kissing)
Moderate (intense, disturbing images of death, birth, government violence
and rebellion, weapons)
