At the end of Divided We Fall, Danny Wright's beloved Idaho had been invaded by the federal government, their electricity shut off, their rights suspended. Danny goes into hiding with his friends in order to remain free. But after the state declares itself a Republic, Idaho rises to fight in a second American Civil War, and Danny is right in the center of the action, running guerrilla missions with his fellow soldiers to break the Federal occupation. Yet what at first seems like a straightforward battle against governmental repression quickly grows more complicated, as more states secede, more people die, and Danny discovers the true nature of some of his new allies.Chilling, powerful, and all too plausible, Burning Nation confirms Trent Reedy's place as a provocative new voice in YA fiction.

Read an Excerpt

From DIVIDED WE FALL TRILOGY: BOOK #2: BURNING NATION:A new roar tore through the sky above us -- an Apache attack helicopter blasting away. The road in front of us burst with sparks and chunks of pavement. I swerved into the left lane as bits of blacktop peppered the truck."They're trying to make us stop," I said. I put the pedal to the floor. The tunnel was in view. "They're speeding up!" Herbokowitz yelled."Look out!" Kemp shouted.Seconds later, the Apache dropped down out of the sky in front of us, hovering a few feet off the ground."Nice try," I said. The gunship hadn't turned its thirty-millimeter cannon on us yet, so I drove straight for it. My big truck with its reinforced body traveling at eighty miles an hour, up against this stationary helicopter with its thin hull? I'd knock it back to the mountain if I had to.
