Overview

The Always War by Margaret Peterson Haddix

Unending war leads to the discovery of uneasy truths when two teens question the status quo in this riveting thriller.

For as long as Tessa can remember, her country has been at war. When local golden boy Gideon Thrall is awarded a medal for courage, it’s a rare bright spot for everyone in Tessa’s town—until Gideon refuses the award, claims he was a coward, and runs away. Tessa is bewildered, and she can’t help but follow Gideon to find out the truth. But Tessa is in for more than she bargained for. Before she knows it, she has stowed away on a rogue airplane and is headed for enemy territory. But all that pales when she discovers a shocking truth that rocks the foundation of everything she’s ever believed—a truth that will change the world. Is Tessa strong enough to bring it into the light?

This book was sort of similar to one of her other series called the Missing Series in a way cause of the fighting, mystery, and the bug shocker at the end of each book. I wiish this book was longer and he a little more details in the beginning in the book. The ending was a shocker to me and the end was when it got intense. Overall good book and i recommned u to read it.

Awesome book ! I just finished it and it only took me 2-3 days because it draws you in soooo much !! I read half the book in one day and it took me 3 days only because i didn't have time to read the second day . Such a good book !!!!!!!! Kind of a sudden ending though , but it was unpredictable (which for me is a good book) awesome !!

This auther is great. She develops the characters nicely and keeps the action parts well spaced out. I wasnt a big fan of reading it at first, but after the first chapter i couldnt put it down. I would recomend you read this if you like action and adventure. If you dont like to read then this book will change your mind.

Overall I was very disappointed. I expected much better from Haddix. The character was very weak and I hated the ending.The whole book was very disappointing.

I bought this book for $8.99 and found out that it was only 154 pages. The story was good but I feel as though the characters could have been more developed. I finished this book in about 2 hours. Should have been more like $1.99.

This is the best book ever. I thought that it was good with well drawn characters. Loved it a very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very lot. You would be very very very very very very crazy person not to like this. I have read a lot of books big and small, but this is the best by far. My favorite part was when Tessa, Gidion, and Des went into the room with the computer and the computer talked with them and they got shot with darts and were taken to the cell and then they fixed the small computer and then made a comercial telling everybody that there was not a real war and then they believed
