What are you currently reading?
Riot by Sarah Mussi
Life in Great Britain is at a boiling point. Unemployment and crime are at a record high. Businesses are failing. Cities are overcrowded. In an effort to fix things, politicians suggest a radical move: cut funding to support systems for the poor and force sterilization on drop-outs, criminals, and other "problem populations." Outraged, Tia and her hacker friends organize protests. They find themselves caught up in something much larger. 
This is a pretty exciting read so far and I look forward to finding out how it ends.
What did you recently finish reading?
Deliver Me by Kate Jarvik Birch
In the Union, every citizen is judged by a set of ideals at the age of 16. The best are made into soldiers or carriers. The rest are assigned to jobs. There is little interaction between genders and concepts like love, family, and thinking for ones-self are strictly prohibited.
It was a pretty good, quick read that reminded me pretty strongly of Lois Lowry's Giver quartet.
What do you think you will read next?
Swimmers by Amy Bright
Desperate to escape her quiet, controlled life of isolation and homeschooling, Poppy takes off on a bus trip with her neighbor's nephew Harper and his friend Lee to face the secrets Harper left behind at home.
