AboveAbove by Isla Morley
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I got a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review

I was so very excited to read this book because all the reviews were compairing this book to "ROOM" which i LOVED! Sadly this book did not even come close to how good "ROOM" was. I was very disappointed. And I found out after reading this book that i do not like distopian books AT ALL

Blythe Hallowell is a 16 year old girl who was kidnapped by her library school teacher and taken under ground. She was lot aloud to leave and every time she asked when she could go home the library teacher told her about how the world was going to end and he was saving her and one day they will emerage from under ground and start there own population.

Blythe was abused and raped by her capture and ended up having a little baby girl that passes away right after birth. The capture ends up kidnapping a little boy to bring back to blythe since she was so heart broken from loosing her child. I am not going to into details about the boy because i do not want to spoil the story, except to say it does not end well.

She does end up having another baby, a boy this time, who survives and lives with her for a long time named Adam. When Adam is 15 years old blythe makes a daring escape with Adam and try to go "ABOVE" only to realize what the capture has been saying all along actually happend. The world was coming to an end and all these horriable things were happening.

On a misson to find her parents and family she runs into the "locals" who have some sort of deformaity from radation. As Blythe’s dream of going home hangs in the balance, she faces the ultimate choice—between survival and freedom.

The begining of the book is so good it sucks you in and you just can not stop reading. then the book get VERY boring. VERY. It picks up again once they escape, but then i found it boring AGAIN. if your a big fan of distopian then this book is for you.
