The book that will “blow you away”** has a dazzling new look in paperback!Saba has spent her whole life in Silverlake, a dried-up wasteland ravaged by constant sandstorms. The Wrecker civilization has long been destroyed, leaving only landfills for Saba and her family to scavenge from. That's fine by her, as long as her beloved twin brother Lugh is around. But when four cloaked horsemen capture Lugh, Saba's world is shattered, and she embarks on a quest to get him back.  Suddenly thrown into the lawless, ugly reality of the outside world, Saba discovers she is a fierce fighter, an unbeatable survivor, and a cunning opponent. Teamed up with a handsome daredevil named Jack and a gang of girl revolutionaries called the Free Hawks, Saba’s unrelenting search for Lugh stages a showdown that will change the course of her own civilization.  Blood Red Road has a searing pace, a poetic writing style, and an epic love story—making Moira Young is one of the most exciting new voices in teen fiction.

Now years later, when I saw the audiobook at my local library I had to get it. Blood Red Road is about a yo...

4.0 Blood Red Road (Dust Lands, #1)
It took me a little bit to get used to the format of narration. A friend compared it to Beverly Hillbillies, and I agree. It works for this book and the main character. Makes me think I should re-try some DNFed books for this reason. Maybe if I read more I might get into it. The world-building was ...
