FREEDOM To Read #Giveaway Hop: Perry Road by @emijgayle #Dystopian #YAlit #NA

Without freedom, life isn't worth living.

That is why for my part in this year's Freedom to Read hop, I'm offering up a NA / YA novel that really hit home for me last year. 

Perry Road is the first in Emi Gayle's Revoltion Series and this story truly has the power to begin a revolution.

Check out the goods...

In 2132, “We the people …” means nothing, and it hasn’t for a hundred years.
Like all the citizens of the American Union, eighteen-year-old Erianna Keating is not to ask questions. She is not to believe anything except what the A.U. tells her. More importantly, she’s not supposed to know what she doesn’t know, nor that she’s a pawn.
Like everyone else, though, she is, and like everyone else, she is a hundred percent oblivious to what’s going on.
Or is she? Are they?
Erianna thinks going to Perry Road and joining the national registration program is her next step toward adulthood; the 2132 candidates for adult-classification, though, are in for a big surprise. Especially Erianna.
Thanks to Zane Warren, an awkward but hot guy who won’t shut up about a history that doesn’t—or shouldn’t—matter anymore, Erianna will know. Will learn. That includes finding out what actually happens after registration and doing something, anything, about it.
Fixing what went wrong, what caused the U.S.A. to split into two countries, though, is not on Erianna’s bucket list, but as she faces her future, she must decide whether to fall in line with the American Union’s plan for her, or to consider that Zane might not be wrong, and the time for revolution begins now.

  1. The cover for Perry Road is great! When I was reading the blurb I had two thoughts, "This sounds awesome!" and "This sounds like one of my WIP's." But they are still very different. Whew! lol ;)
