Death Thieves

About the bookYou're dead, Summer Dawn Rae.

When Summer Rae is stolen from the moment of her own death and taken to a future where mankind is dying, it is with the hope that she, and other teenagers like her, can save it. But after only a short time in the future, Summer discovers a darker side to the altruistic reasons behind her abduction. She is determined to fulfill her purpose in a world gone literally mad, but can an ordinary girl save a whole world when she only cares about saving one person? 

My review: This book is kind of crazy! (Oops, I shouldn't have said that!) The plot follows the life of Summer Dawn Rae, she's a twin in high school and she doesn't feel that her life is ideal. She's almost always grounded for doing things that her Aunt Theresa doesn't think she should have done. But Summer is very defiant and finds ways to sneak out anyway.

Summer's twin Winter plays a part in the beginning of the book, and after finishing it, I wish she had played a larger part. She's kind of the voice of reason for Summer, the reason she's still alive and sane. 

Well, she was alive, Summer's defiance gets her into trouble when she's in the wrong place at the wrong time with her boyfriend Nathan and they get into a car accident. Nathan is killed instantly, and Summer is removed from the situation before she's killed, by a soldier from the future, Tag. And that's where the plot of this one gets crazy.

The future parts in this one scared me a bit. They seem like our world, only worse. The population is literally going crazy, killing toddlers because they aren't sane. The way they've set up a way to save their population by stealing dying teenagers from the past is creative to say the least, I was kind of amazed that more of the teenagers didn't feel the same way that Summer seemed to about the whole thing, they appeared to have been brainwashed into believing that the government was okay.

I liked that Summer was willing to do something about the evil she found in the future. That she was willing to fight not only for herself to find love, but for the world in general. When she saw an evil she worked to get rid of it. And I loved the way, in the end, she forgave those who had hurt her and moved on.

This was a great book, it really made me think about things and the world in general.

I got this book for voting for it in the Kindle Scout contest.
