A mysterious worldwide epidemic reduces the birthrate of female infants from 50 percent to less than 1 percent. Medical science and governments around the world scramble in an effort to solve the problem, but twenty-five years later there is no cure, and an entire generation grows up with a population of fewer than a thousand women.
Zoey and some of the surviving young women are housed in a scientific research compound dedicated to determining the cause. For two decades, she’s been isolated from her family, treated as a test subject, and locked away—told only that the virus has wiped out the rest of the world’s population.
Captivity is the only life Zoey has ever known, and escaping her heavily armed captors is no easy task, but she’s determined to leave before she is subjected to the next round of tests…a program that no other woman has ever returned from. Even if she’s successful, Zoey has no idea what she’ll encounter in the strange new world beyond the facility’s walls. Winning her freedom will take brutality she never imagined she possessed, as well as all her strength and cunning—but Zoey is ready for war.
The synopsis of this book really drew me in as well as the cover, I am a sucker for a good dystopian, unfortunately it kind of fell flat for me, although I still found the book enjoyable it is not going to stick too much in my head, it is kind of a read it and forget it kind of deal, well at least until the next book comes out.
Joe Hart has created a world where female babies have stopped being born, any girl babies that are born are taken in and brought up by the government in an institution. our Heroine Zoey has been taken from her family and raised with the other last females, everything is fine until zoey starts questioning what they are really there for and why can’t they be part of the outside world.
