  "When She Woke"by pawright97 (see profile) 09/25/14

Riveting. A must read for book club!

 
  "Scarlet Letter meets dystopian future"by jenniferharding (see profile) 01/09/14

My book group really enjoyed this book and we had plenty to talk about. Everyone agreed it was a really quick read, some finishing it in two sittings. The action picks up on page one as we're introduced... (read more)

  "A Pleasant Surprise"by ebach (see profile) 11/21/11

WHEN SHE WOKE by Hillary Jordan was a pleasant surprise for me. From what I had heard, I had expected a futuristic book about a world where abortion was a crime punishable by turning the cri... (read more)
