This week’s selection is Dark Parties by 2011 debut author Sara Grant. I chose this book because it’s a dystopian novel and I’m still hooked on that genre. The premise sounds very dark, mysterious, and exciting. I’m also intrigued by the title and the cover.
Description from the publisher:
Sixteen-year-old Neva has been trapped since birth. She was born and raised under the Protectosphere, in an isolated nation ruled by fear, lies, and xenophobia. A shield “protects” them from the outside world, but also locks the citizens inside. But there’s nothing left on the outside, ever since the world collapsed from violent warfare. Or so the government says…
Neva and her best friend Sanna believe the government is lying and stage a “dark party” to recruit members for their underground rebellion. But as Neva begins to uncover the truth, she realizes she must question everything she’s ever known, including the people she loves the most.
Dark Parties is due to be published August 3 2011 by Little, Brown.
