In the book Resist, by Sara Crossan, after most of the Resistance dies and “The Grove” is nothing but ashes, a few lucky survivors have to find their way to stay alive. Many want to kill them and they only have a limited amount of air in their tanks. They must find a new place to live with air, food, and water.
After finding Sequoia, they find themselves caught in a society unlike the one they left behind. The people there do not care about trees at all. They need to stay together and help each other to survive. Soon, they become part of a dangerous revolution that might single handedly change the world.
Personally, I loved this book and the book before this one, “Breathe”. It was action packed and you never knew what was going to happen next. It shows that you have to keep fighting for what you believe in and when things get bad it’s up to you to make it better. The main characters are very different from each other in this book. That is why it is very interesting on how they react to each other and what they will do next. In this book the events go from romance to bloodshed and anywhere in between.
I would recommend this book to fans of Susan Collins and Veronica Roth. The books that those authors wrote are similar to “Breathe” and “Resist”, telling how the world might be after many years pass, in the future. Some boys may not like this book because of the little romance in it. Also some girls may not like this book either because there may be too much killing in it for them, but for me there is a perfect amount of romance and killing in it.
