Surrounded by electrical fences, most kids try to survive the Farms by turning on each other… And when trust is a thing of the past, escape is nearly impossible.

The Child 44 trilogy (which I am just now finishi8ng) is AMAZING. So, I was excited to find out that Mr. Smith had written this book. I didn't know what to expect since the trilogy was complete.Right off the bat, I realized this book would be nothing like the trilogy. It took me a little while to...

Can't WAIT for The L...
