chucklesthescot has a group on Goodreads called My Big Fat Booky Challenge-athon. She recently started a new section in her group called Author Promotion. David Estes was one of the authors being promoted. I liked the sound of the book and wanted to give it a go. I quiet like the idea of helping indie authors. I'm going to try and do it much more.

I loved this. It was better than The Hunger Games. Yes I will be comparing it to that during this reveiw as I feel it would appeal to the same readers. Firstly the stuff thats similar, well it's a dystopian YA where lesser classes ( moon & star dwellers) are oppressed by the higher class (sun dwellers). Much like the districts in HG. However there are no murder games to play. But instead we have a jail break, an exciting chase and rebellion. The characters in this book are so strong and likable. You are there right with them from page one. Adele is a fantastic female character. Shes not sitting around whining, she's drop kicking her enemies in the face before they even know whats hit them. And the thing that makes this better than HG is how the romance is handled. It's hardly there but it is there. You can feel it. And it's believable. No love triangles. Just this strange sensation that draws Adele and Tristan. This is a very well told story. I want to know what happens to these characters that I've come to care about. This book needs to be picked up by a big publishing company!

This arrived safely, thank you so much for sending it all the way here, Vekiki. And thank you, Redfox5, for sharing it with all of us. I enjoy reading books by indie authors but can't manage to read them on a computer, as I really don't enjoy reading books digitally, so I'm really happy for the chance to read this book as a paper copy. Will post again when I've finished it.

Journal Entry 8 by lils74 at Kathmandu, Bagmati (incl. Kathmandu Valley) Nepal on Wednesday, September 18, 2013
This was a fun, quick read, and I really enjoyed it. I found the story and the plotting very interesting, and a very clever alternate world. To me the plot was better than the writing, which I thought could have used an editor in several places, particularly in the area of show-don’t-tell, and also a lot of terms are repeated too often. That said, it is totally worth reading and with a little help it could, I feel, be even better. I can’t compare it to The Hunger Games as I’ve never read that, but I liked this. Several of the characters were very interesting, although I liked Tawni and Cole even more than Adele, to be honest, and almost wished they’d been main characters.
Thank you so much, Redfox5, for sharing it with all of use. It's great to have the chance to read books by different authors. I'm pming Carelasisa now.

I got it today in the mail! It came in a plastic bag from Canada Post, as the paper around the book was damaged... but the book wasn't!

Thanks redfox5 for sharing the book with us and lils74 for sending it my way.

Journal Entry 11 by wingcarelaisawing at Québec, Québec Canada on Friday, October 25, 2013
What can I say about this book? For me, it sounded like The Hunger Games book, where there’s teenage romance, hierarchy in the society that had to change and go underground to survive, and a teenager as the main heroine. It might have good reviews from readers on the internet, but I couldn’t help feeling that I was reading all over again The Hunger Games. The writing might be ok but I felt it dragged on, and also alternating between the two main characters wasn’t always easy to follow. Again, it was one of those books that I finished reading because I wanted to know how it would end. I don’t think I will read the other books in the trilogy, and the fact that those are only available as e-books over here isn’t helping in convincing me to read them!

I have the address of the next bcer - it will go out in the mail in the coming days.

EDIT: the book is now travelling since Nov 4th, to the next bcer!

The book has arrived in sunny California! I look forward to reading it. Thank you, carelaisa, for sending it all the way from Quebec!

Journal Entry 13 by wingjudygreeneyeswing at San Diego, California USA on Thursday, November 21, 2013
I can see that this book is going somewhere potentially interesting, but it just has not captured my attention. I love dystopian stories, but YA books only sometimes have the complexity I prefer. The dialogue in the portion I did read seemed stilted, but otherwise it seems like an interesting enough book for teens/young adults. PM'd hostile17.

Journal Entry 15 by wingbook_drunkardwing at Osgood, Indiana USA on Tuesday, December 3, 2013
Received today.
There may be a slight delay in passing this on as I fell on Friday and broke my ankle.
The doctor says it may be a month before I am able to walk again and I am having a lot of pain and taking painkillers and not very able to concentrate on reading at the moment.
I will try not to hold this up for longer than a month and I am very sorry for causing a delay with this book.

Journal Entry 16 by wingbook_drunkardwing at Osgood, Indiana USA on Wednesday, April 30, 2014
This book had a hard time holding my attention.
It just seemed to drag on and on, not going much of anywhere.
It wasn't horrible, it wasn't great, it was just an ok read.

Received in the mail yesterday along with a "Ladies Night" novel. Thanks so much for passing this one along. I had forgotten that I had signed up for this, but obviously, I must be on a dystopian novel kick as I have read quite a few of them lately. Will get to this one as soon as possible, then send it on.
Thanks Redfox5 for starting this ray, and to Hostile17 for sending it to me (including the boxtops within, and the recipes in the Andrews' book).

Journal Entry 19 by wingminesaynwing at Huron, Ohio USA on Monday, June 23, 2014
Another YA dystopian novel, the first in the series, about three levels of society living underground after an apocalypse. The leaders are the Sun Dwellers; the middle class are the Moon Dwellers (where most of the action of this novel takes place); and the lower classes are the Star Dwellers. Adele is a Moon Dweller imprisoned for the crimes of her parents; Tristan is the son of the President. When they first set eyes on each other, electricity happens. Can they figure out why this happens? Are they destined for something greater?

When a rebellion breaks out, all bets are off as Adele and her friends Tawni and Cole,try to save her family, and Tristan tries to break away from his father and find his mother.
