My Review: Resignation

I received a free copy of the book for my honest opinion.

In Resignation Nessa finds out that what they have been taught ever since she was a little girl was not the truth. She finds out that everything about the outside world is wrong. But there is also a lot of things that she doesn't learn until it is too late. She is separated from the love of her life Garrett and believes that she will never see him again. Nessa learns a secret that no one where she lives knows and is exiled along with another boy Tyler. Nessa has to keep this secret to herself to protect her family. Nessa will do whatever it takes to save the ones that she loves.

Nessa gets herself into a world of trouble over a boy. Nessa will give up her life for this boy and to save a nation if that is what it takes. I love how tough Nessa is and how much pain physically and mentally that she can handle. There is not many people who would go through what she does for someone else knowing what it is going to cost her. Nessa is one of the bravest and good hearted person/character I have met in a long time. 

All of the characters or most of them in this series are some of the best people you would ever want to be friends with. You feel as if you are right there with them and suffering right along with them. You feel their heart aches and their physical pain as well. The author gives you a description of Nessa and Ty's world it is so vivid in your mind that you feel as if you are standing right next to them watching them as they play out their roles.

This series Worlds Apart has been one of the best series that I have read in a very long, long, long time. The ending was one of the best endings ever. When I read the last word I was like no, no, no, no you can't do this to me. I got to know what happens next. I can't wait for the next book. There is no way there is not going to be a next book. Oh please tell me that there is going to be another one. I loved the whole book but the ending was out of the ball park. It was a grand slam. I am going to be keeping my eyes on Amanda Thome for more of her books.

Release Date: 04/15/14

Summary from Goodreads:
What if everything came down to a single test? If your life was defined at seventeen, could you handle it? Could you accept your fate leaving the ones you love, or would you risk it all and stay?

One test stands between Vanessa and Central. One chance to make the leap across the walls to a better life. At seventeen, Central considers Vanessa an adult. Her labor role, marriage, and housing divisions will be dictated by her performance on the leap.

Dedication and unfaltering friendship has bonded Vanessa to Garrett as they fight for their chance to leap into Central. But what happens when love overtakes reason? When defiance in the name of love creates an unintentional fracture in their nation.

Without warning Vanessa is at the mercy of the nation that’s supposed to protect her. Exiled and abandoned she must fight but she find’s she’s not alone. With her heart divided she seeks her revenge, but will her stand be enough?

Ruination is the next YA dystopian trilogy that will hook you from the start! If you liked Veronica Roth's Divergent series or Suzanne Collins Hunger Games series then be prepared to get addicted to Ruination.

My Review: Ruination

I received a free copy of the book for my honest opinion.

Vanessa Hollins who is known as and likes to be called Nessa lives in a world that is divide into sectors. Each sector has a wall around it to keep the people and the world’s separate from each other. Nessa's mother died when she was a little girl while giving birth to her little sister Emma. Nessa missed her mother very much. But it didn't cause her to dislike Emma in anyway. She took on the role of being Emma's mother. Nessa helped her Dad take care of Emma. 

The world that Nessa lived in taught her how to survive on her own until she reached the age of seventeen. At the age of seventeen she became an adult and began living the life of an adult. When the children turned seventeen they all took a test to see who would get to leap to Central. Everyone that lived in Nessa's world of Inner was raised to want to take this leap into the next world. They were taught that it was better than their own. Getting to leap to Central was their whole life. No one thought about their families and friends or who they were leaving behind. Every child and parent wanted their sibling or child to be the top dog so that they could go to Central and have a better life.

Well that is what most of the people in Inner wanted. But Nessa cared more about her family and being with the guy that was her best friend for most of her life. Nessa wanted to be with him so she made the biggest mistake of her life. But she didn't know that she was making a mistake until it was too late.

Nessa was a very good hearted person who cared for other people more than she cared for herself. She would lay down her own life for someone she cared for. Nessa was one tough cookie who would not back down from anything or anyone.

I have loved reading Ruination with Nessa, Emma, Ty, Garrett and all of the other characters. I am glad that I got to know them and follow along with them on their journeys through life. I love the world that the author has built in Ruination. It is incredible. If you have not read it and you like dystopian then this is one book that you need to read. Oh and you might want to pick up a box of tissue before you start reading because you are going to need them. I can't wait for the next book in the series Resignation.
