Book Description:

A small town in the mid-South. The tall razor-wired fence that cuts off The Fields from the rest of America where the government mandated the evacuation. The trains that terminate at the controlled entrance where the buses take the men inside. Alice, like her middle-school classmates, has heard the rumors. The empty towns. The prison camps. The “Frog People” with their cancerous lumps. Her friend Carmen is driven to see the pad where his father was killed – and Michael, unfortunately, is the only one that can get them there.

This writer is a master of mixing poetic license with dynamic dialog to create an engaging tale that sometimes hits all too close to society today. Following the tale of three preteens looking to find answers to myths and murmurs they've grown up hearing and wondering about and fraught with the trembling reminders of consumer excess, the story builds as new story lines and differing points of view are added. You find yourself wondering as you read, and Simon does a wonderful job of telling each story and tying up loose ends. If you're a fan of King's "The Body" or the dystopian society genre as a whole (I know, it sounds crazy to lump those two together), this book is going to answer your need. It's not often that a writer can handle a heavy topic and bring characters to life in way that has you pulling for them, but Steven Simon has done it well here. This is a must read. Excellent writing.
