After the Green Withered This is a genre I don’t normally read. I joined the first #ultimateblogtour with Dave @the_WriteReads. So, I gave this genre a try. The book starts out sorta normal. With Enora getting ready to graduate from high school. She has a best friend named Safa who she interacts with until she gets recruited. She will train to be a Sentinel and interact with drones. She will witness a lot of things that will surprise her. This is a first of a series and it does a little cliffhanger. I am not sure if I will read the next book or not. It was easy reading even if was strange to me. It did have some bad language in it. Only a small part of the book and I found out after reading most of the book. I did receive a complimentary copy of the book for my review. I was not required to write an positive review. This is my own opinion.

Book source ~ Book Tour. My review is voluntary and honest. The world is barren and water is power for the Corporation that rules it in this YA Dystopian about Enora Byrnes and the choices made for her that she has to live with or die because of. Trust me when I say her tale will hurt you so good. This book is scary because we could easily end up like Enora and everyone else in this story. It’s depressing as hell, but in a good way. Does that even make sense? I mean, it’s a great dystopian tale about what could happen if our climate changes so horribly that water becomes scarce and everything green just dies. It makes me appreciate that we aren’t that bad. Yet. We still have time to turn our planet around. In Enora’s world it’s so much worse than she could ever imagine, or that I could imagine. And I can imagine a lot. Oh, man, I do not envy her discovery. When faced with an impossible choice what would you do? Toe the line with head down or resist and probably end up dying a painful death? It’s not a simple choice by any means and Enora’s internal conflict shows throughout the entire book. Should she? Shouldn’t she? What can she do? She’s just one person. Or is she? The world building is decent even if it slows the narrative a bit in the beginning. The characters are pretty well-defined and the conflict, both external and internal, is nail-biting. I took off for the slow beginning and because Enora had a tendency to irritate me a bit at times. Even with the detractions I had a hard time putting the book down. This is one YA Dystopian you should not miss.
