I just found this a fascinating story; set in distant future; but with all the difficult questions that girls face in our time.

Misinformed Bible bashing, feminist trash. Don't waste your money, I read about half way through, was bored out of my mind the whole time and then reached the point where the undeveloped characters start bashing the Bible, shut the book and took it back to B&N because I won't waste my money on such nonsense. Lesley Hauge please let this be your LAST book.

    Reviewed by Melanie Foust for TeensReadToo.com

    Keller has been born and raised in Foundland, an island composed entirely of women. She, along with everyone on the island, has learned of the pitfalls - reflection, decoration, coquetry, triviality, vivacity, compliance, and sensuality. She normally follows the rules, her accidental glimpse of an image (which is forbidden) while in the library aside. She is a tracker, currently in training to help keep the enemy away, if it ever dares set foot on Foundland. The enemy? Man.

    Then Laing, a fellow tracker, shares with Keller a forbidden dwelling from the time before. She and a few others begin to frequent the place, silently sneaking away from their dwellings, being careful not to get caught. Keller is torn. The things they see and do are against everything they've been taught, but the forbidden images, of women and men from the past whose lives look so different from her own, compel her.

    Strange things begin to happen, and the world as Keller knows it is changing rapidly. She will have to find out who she is and who she should trust. Her decisions will change her life, irrevocably.

    Debut author Lesley Hauge's dystopian novel takes readers into a world where women's values are very different. In this world, friendship is something to be avoided, a sign of weakness. Love and family are foreign concepts. I kept waiting for a man to swoop in and save the day, but no. This is a story about female strengths and weaknesses, of self-discovery and finding out what you'll do when you think no one is watching.

    Suspenseful and thought-provoking, NOMANSLAND is a book that will spark many conversations amongst its readers.
