Overview

When Rachel crosses The Line she leaves behind everything she has ever known and enters a strange new world: Away. Life there is hard, and survival is never guaranteed. Bizarre, wild creatures roam the forests, and people--the same people she's always been told are dangerous and untrustworthy--have gifts she's never thought possible.

Rachel has to rely on Pathik, the boy she risked her own life for, to help her navigate the strange customs. He's exasperating, but she thinks she can trust him, and she hopes he'll lead her to answers about her father. As it turns out, he leads her to more than she bargained for, and Rachel finds herself on an adventure filled with life and death choices, dark conspiracies, and unthinkable sacrifice.

In a place with no technology, no electricity, no medicine, and very little hope, Rachel discovers that only one thing makes life worth living. If only it's not too late.

An adventure filled with life-and-death choices, dark conspiracies, and heart-poundingly suspenseful moments, this sequel delivers.

Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Beth Andersen
All fifteen-year-old Rachel has known for the past dozen years is life on the property of Ms. Moore, where Rachel's widowed mother still grieves for her husband, Daniel, killed in the war. Generations ago, nuclear bombs separated the Unified States from Away, the area caught in the fallout and separated by The Line, an invisible barrier that can only be penetrated at a few locations with a special card key. In this sequel to The Line (Dial/Penguin, 2010/VOYA June 2010), which ended abruptly with Rachel making contact with a young Other, Pathik, from Away, she has now crossed with medicine for Pathik's father, Malgram. It is a dangerous mission, as a nearby tribe of Roberts is only kept at bay by the evolutionary "mental gifts" of the Others, which can serve as weapons. Once all the intertwined family connections are sorted out—Ms. Moore is Pathik's grandmother, Rachel's father is being held prisoner by the Roberts—a new rescue mission is put into place as the Others consider a move to a legendary island that may be safer. Hall's imaginative dystopian world takes the concepts of good versus evil and modern versus primitive into fresh territory with plenty of comparisons to today's world. For readers reluctant to dip into science fiction, this adventure is an engaging place to start. While it is not necessary to start with The Line, certainly it will fill out the details, and at the conclusion of Away, readers will eagerly find themselves hoping for a third installment. Reviewer: Beth Andersen
School Library Journal
Gr 7–10—This book picks up where The Line (Dial, 2010) leaves off. Rachel finds herself struggling to adjust to life Away, after having Crossed over the Line in order to save the leader of a group of Others. Feared, and in some cases openly despised, she clings to the hope that she will be able to find her father, Daniel, presumed dead for several years, and reunite her family. Rachel learns quickly that not all of the Others are as terrible and frightening as she has been led to believe, and through her, the Others discover that there are still good people on the other side of the Line. The story starts slowly, but once it gets going, it moves quickly-so much so that the ending seems a bit rushed and not quite fully developed. Rachel is a little vanilla as far as teen heroines go but there are plenty of fully fleshed-out characters to carry the narrative, particularly among the Others. The story will leave fans of the first book eager for the next installment.—Erik Knapp, Davis Library, Plano, TX

    AWAY

    This book is a great read, but needs a sequel. There is too big a cliffhanger.

    Good

    This book was good. I gave it 3 Stars tho because the suprises in it were expected. I kinda figured out what will happen before it did. I like surprises in a book. Things that happen that makes me say OMG!!! Lol. This wasn't that kind of book. But it was still good.
