Breathe by Sarah Crossan - book trailer

Breathe is a sensational dystopian thriller. Set in a treeless world where diminishing oxygen levels have forced a state lottery to decide the lucky few who will live inside the Pod, and those who will slowly suffocate outside. It delivers on action, adventure, revolution and romance.

Are there too many Hunger Games out there? - TG Daily

Are there too many Hunger Games out there? - TG Daily | Books and Book Reviews | Scoop.it

Love it or hate it, the whole movie franchise will be wrapped up and done by 2015, but it’s easy to be mistaken in thinking there’s more out there, because a lot of Young Adult novels out there are very similar to the Hunger Games these days.

Why criminals are the new vampires in YA fiction

Why criminals are the new vampires in YA fiction | Books and Book Reviews | Scoop.it

We all know YA literature has surges where certain genres become huge and really popular: lately, it's been magic, spies, vampires, angels and contemporary stories. So what could possibly be next? Personally, I think it's going to be crime.

Divergent by Veronica Roth - review

Divergent by Veronica Roth - review | Books and Book Reviews | Scoop.it
For someone who reads as many dystopian future novels as I do, Divergent has a lot to live up to ('cough' The Hunger Games 'cough'). However, I was most definitely hooked by this superb work of fiction. It had everything a dystopian novel needs: a feisty heroine, an unyielding government, love interests, survival in a harsh world, and shocks and twists galore. In short, it was fantastic!

Lois Lowry Returns to Dystopian Future of 'The Giver' With Sequel 'The Son'

Lois Lowry Returns to Dystopian Future of 'The Giver' With Sequel 'The Son' | Books and Book Reviews | Scoop.it

Before children frolicked in Hunger Games, and Vampires sparkled like glitter in the Twilight, there was "The Giver," by Lois Lowry. One of the most challenged books of the 1990s, Lowry's novel drew a firestorm of criticism that the book's subject matter was inappropriate for young children. Then it won the 1994 Newbery Medal for children's literature.

'Skinny' Starts A Conversation For Overweight Teens - NPR

'Skinny' Starts A Conversation For Overweight Teens - NPR | Books and Book Reviews | Scoop.it

There haven't been very many young adult books that deal with weight loss surgery, and I applaud the author for her choice of story. I hope Skinny can start a conversation for young people who are thinking about the surgery, so they can be prepared for the major physical and mental transition it brings.
