#43: The Refugee Sentinel by Harrison Hayes

It’s 2052 and our world is dying – the population has reached 34 billion; the polar caps have melted and Earth has become a single-country planet. Our survival seems to be guaranteed by a draconian new law requiring the expendables to choose someone to die or choose to die in someone else's stead. Only the High-Potentials, those whose contributions are deemed essential to humankind, are exempt. Yana Perkins is eight and lives with her mother Sarah. But what if Yana were earmarked for death? And what if Sarah were not allowed to take her daughter's place? And what if the one who could replace Yana is being marked by someone else?

REVIEW:
Pulse-pounding!
I really like Li-Mei. She is vicious, incredibly intelligent, and a general bad-ass chick! She probably shouldn't be my favorite character, but she is. She is so well written.
This was an intriguing story. I've never read anything quite like it before. It was told from two points in time, giving you the whole story in a much rounder picture. It was predictable at the Father's Day moment. It was literally what any parent in the universe would do for their child. The rest of the story though, I couldn't call it. You just had to keep reading to find it all out.
I love dystopian stories. I like it even more with a contract killer... female, no less. Way cool!
Lots of you out there are going to eat this book up like I did. So really ask yourself, what are you waiting for? Get it.

4.5/5

  4. I don't think I've heard of a story like this before, so am intrigued! So who decides if you live or die? The government? Yikes! We all know how corrupt they can be. Thanks for sharing!

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
