I received a netgalley of Hanna Who Fell from the Sky by Christopher Meades, in exchange for an honest review. Hanna is a 17 year old girl who is quickly approaching her 18th birthday. She lives in the secluded community of Clearhaven, where when a girl turns 18 she must marry. The men in this community take multiple wives and she would be the fifth wife. Hanna is not totally on board with this life course. Things really start to upend when she meets a boy that has been outside in the world. We witness Hanna's struggles and her yearn for a future that is not mapped out for her. I found it an easy read.
For me, this book had an interesting premise as the background was set in a polygamist colony and it wasn't a true story or anything like that. That's just how the author decided to write it. I felt for Hannah throughout the whole story. What a life - NOT!! There were several times when I became pretty creeped out. Especially, the first night Hannah's father told her she was to have a bedroom alone. That worried me. Thankfully, what I saw coming did not make it onto the pages. The men in this colony were bad enough without that going on. However, I never really got into the "special effects" brought into the story to coincide with the title. I'm still shaking my head on that part. All in all, it was an interesting read which I mostly enjoyed. Thanks to Harlequin and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
