I absolutely loved this book. It's a great book for people who have read The Hunger Games and are looking for more dystopian teen fiction. I am a teen and I read a LOT of books, but this is one of the best books I've ever read. Five stars!

I am in the 10-14 age and thought this book was brilliant! I pre-ordered the 2nd book and hope it's like the first. Very mysterious and exciting! Please get a sample! The sample might be boring or confusing but when you buy the book you will be like O.M.G!

This is a fast paced suspense story that will keep you turning pages. Unfoprtunately it leaves you hanging right in the middle of the story. Make sure to have book two close at hand.

Behind the Gates, by Eva Gray, is the first in a new series for children, called Tomorrow Girls. It looked interesting as it's a dystopian novel for kids, which as far as I know is fairly unique. The young adult shelves are full of them but for ages eight - twelve, I don't see as many. The story starts with Louisa and Maddie heading toward a special boarding school. They anticipate freedom and activities, but they find that the school is very different than expected. They are taught survival skills and have all of their electronics taken away. Louisa loves it but Maddie wants to go home. The girls, along with some new friends, discover that things aren't quite what they seem and they begin to wonder about the school's intentions. With the world at war, are they being taught survival for a reason?The story ends just as the story gets going. It will be interesting to continue the series eventually. I enjoyed the book but was not blown away by it. It will probably appeal more to its intended age group but I can see where kids might not be patient enough to wait for the second book. It might be an idea to get the entire series!

The US is at war and children are sent to boarding schools "for their protection". Four girls come together and figure out that "all is not as it seems". Each book in the series (4 in all) is written from the viewpoint of a different girl.Yes, the story line is a little predictable, but it is written for younger children. There's just enough tension to be exciting without being scary. I'm interested enough in seeing what happens to these girls to track down the other books as they are published. There won't be long to wait between stories. All four books are scheduled to be published this year.

In this future the US is at war with the Alliance. The Alliance has almost completely conquered Canada and Louisa's parents send her from Chicago to Country Manor School to assure her safety. But CMS is a little strange. It is isolated and the girls there have no contact with the outside world. They spend a lot of time learning survival skills like canoeing, camping and shooting with a bow and arrow or .22. Louisa likes the school because she excels at these skills. However, at least one of her roommates is sure that there is a conspiracy and secrets at the school. This is the setup book for the series and would be a good middle school adventure story.
