Summary:

From the author of WORDS IN THE DUST: an action-packed YA novel set in a frighteningly plausible near future, about what happens when the States are no longer United.

Danny Wright never thought he'd be the man to bring down the United States of America. In fact, he enrolled in the National Guard because he wanted to serve his country the way his father did. When the Guard is called up on the governor's orders to police a protest in Boise, it seems like a routine crowd-control mission...but then Danny's gun misfires, spooking the other soldiers and the already fractious crowd. By the time the smoke clears, twelve people are dead.

The president wants the soldiers arrested. The governor swears to protect them. And as tensions build on both sides, the conflict slowly escalates toward the unthinkable: a second American civil war.

With political questions that are popular in American culture yet rare in YA fiction, and a plot that's both excitingly provocative and frighteningly plausible, DIVIDED WE FALL will be Trent Reedy's very timely YA debut.

    This book was so entertaining! I got it as a free credit, but after about half an hour, I was really into the story. I could imagine myself as a high school guy in a small town because that was me 12 years ago. I also really liked the premise of the book and how the book played audio clips from the radio, news, and had many different voices throughout! I never read fiction, so this was a great way to get back into it. If I get another free credit, I will use it to get the 2nd book in this series! Give it a listen!

    Really not my type of book, but since it was free I listened to it. About the only thing I liked about it was the narration. Using different people for different individual characters was very appealing. Other than that I found it too fast paced and geared toward younger readers.

  • Jason Glenn

    Downloaded the book as part of a free promotion a few weeks ago. Very low expectations and reviews were "so-so". I was pleasantly surprised. I would agree with other reviewers that this is written for the "young adult" reader, however I found the narration very unique and enjoyable. Looking forward to books 2 and 3 in the series.

  • Nancy Krehlik

    Not a great story. It was fast paced with lots of excitement. Also had lots of teenage drinking, some rash decision making. The narration was good, but I didn't care for the embellished background sounds . I'm not sure what age group it was specifically written for, but I think it is not appropriate for middle schoolers and don't know any high schoolers who would like it.

  • Andrew Susin

    Top notch narration. So-so story. Just the same I did enjoy it especially the fast pace of the plot line.
