Solstice by Jane Redd + Win This Book!

Four ways to get Banished from the last surviving city on earth are: 1. Cut out your emotion tracker, 2. Join a religious cult, 3. Create a rebellion against the Legislature, 4. Fall in love.

Jezebel James does all four.

Jez is on the fast-track to becoming a brilliant scientist, with one goal—to save her city from total extinction. Her caretakers have entrusted her with a secret plan to stop the rain from flooding the rest of the earth and start civilization anew. But the more Jez learns about the price of a fresh beginning, the more she realizes that carrying out the plan will lead to few survivors, and among the dead will be those she cares about the most.

I was so excited to finally read this book.  I nominated it on the Kindle Scout program and I'm so happy it got published.  This is an author I love, venturing into a new genre- dystopian.  How fun, right?

I've been hankering for a good, new dystopian book to read and Solstice fit the bill perfectly.  I was drawn into Jez's world where the waters are rising and the earth is dying.  I was absolutely longing to see the sun while I read this book.  

In this world, the government represses the people by suppressing their emotions.  The less they feel, the less they will fight back against what they are doing because the people simply cease to care about anything.  Jez is brilliant and she feels things.  She tries so hard to hide it because she knows if she doesn't, her life will be in jeopardy.  

This book has some fun twists and turns that I didn't see coming.  Of course, I didn't love the cliff hanger ending but I will be coming back to read the next book.  I hope I don't have to wait too long!!
