Overview


In a terrifying new world, four girls must depend on each other if they want to survive.

Evelyn has always suspected that things are more sinister and more complicated than they seem. Now that Maddie has been kidnapped, Rosie, Louisa, and the boys are paying more attention to Evelyn's theories. As the group makes their way toward war-torn Chicago, they're under constant threat of capture. Danger and dark surprises lurk around every twist of the road.

Evelyn knows they need a solid plot to find Maddie. But what the group comes up with may be their riskiest plan yet: infiltrating the Alliance itself. Even Evelyn has her doubts. Can they save Maddie before it's too late?

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Anne Hevener
Maddie has been kidnapped, and Evelyn, Louisa and Rosie—along with their friends Ryan, Alonso and Drew—are determined to find her before it is too late. The teens have been on the run ever since finding out that their boarding school, the Country Manor, is being run by the Alliance, an enemy organization trying to take power and restore "order" in this bleak, futuristic world. Lost in a desolate war-torn landscape, the friends must depend on each other to find food, shelter, and the way forward. In this third installment of the "Tomorrow Girls" series, the story centers on Evelyn whose suspicions and conspiracy theories have turned out to be not so wacky after all. Now she must face her fears and recognize that, although she may not have the toughness of Rosie, she also has leadership gifts to offer. As a middle book of a series, it might be expected that the volume would have neither a solid beginning nor ending; but even so, the absence of a well-defined story arch is unsatisfying. With the Enemy picks up where Run for Cover, ends, in the moments following Maddie's kidnapping, and moves toward her discovery (at an abandoned library-turned-Alliance-training school) and her eventual rescue to another cliffhanger ending. The dismal futuristic setting and Orwellian themes in the book offer intrigue, but are not well developed or expanded here. The characterization also falls flat; though the girls exhibit resilience, courage and intellect, their characters feel overly simplified: Rosie is tough, Evelyn smart, etc. The tale is quickly paced, however, with plucky heroines, themes of friendship and loyalty, and light touches of romance, which may appeal to the younger teen reader. Book three in the "Tomorrow Girls" series. Reviewer: Anne Hevener
VOYA - Ann McDuffie
In this third book of the series, four friends—Louisa, Rosie, Evelyn, and Maddie—have escaped from the sinister Country Manor boarding school, but now Maddie has been kidnapped. Finally believing Evelyn's conspiracy theories, the group, along with three boys, makes its way toward war-torn Chicago to find Maddie, who may have been captured by the evil Alliance. Danger lurks every step of the way as they cross the devastated landscape hounded by killer electric storms and suspicious strangers. But Evelyn's idea might be the most dangerous yet: to infiltrate an Alliance stronghold and free their friend. Reading book three of a planned four-part series is like jumping into a race that is already in progress. The pacing careens along with plenty of action and dialogue. Backstory is surreptitiously inserted, which helps fill in for the first two books, Behind the Gates and Run for Cover, clueing readers in that the teens are on the run from a ruthless enemy organization. It is recommended, however, that the series be purchased as a package because young readers will want to know the complete story. Similar to John Marsden's excellent Tomorrow, When the War Began series from Scholastic, each chapter ends with a dramatic cliff-hanger, drawing readers to the climactic rescue of their friend, the daughter of a resistance leader. Despite a few inconsistencies, the high-interest plot and the friends' loyalty will keep readers hooked. Reviewer: Ann McDuffie

In each book Eva Grey chose a different narrator of the four girls to tell u more about them. I think it was a uniqe idea. Thhe first one is Louisa, second is Rosie, third one is Evelyn, and the final bookk is Maddie. Do u get it now?
