Hey! It's Galley Girl and this time I am reviewing Away by Teri Hall:
Away is the dystopic sequel to The LineThe Line introduces a girl, Rachel, who lost her dad when he was called to serve. Rachel and her mother move to The Property, the closest house to Away as possible. There she meets Ms. Moore whose son is dying in Away and it is up to Rachel to bring him the medicine they don't have in Away to save him. Rachel meets Pathik, the grandson of Ms. Moore, and they travel to Away and save Pathik's father.
In Away, it picks up where the last book ended (when Rachel gave the medicine to Pathik's father). Rachel's stay in Away gives her the chance to meet new people and the villagers realize that not all 'Regulars' are bad people. Rachel also finds out her father is still alive!  Rachel and her new friends travel to the enemy tribe's camp and rescue her father, who thought that both Rachel and her mother were dead. Eventually Rachel and her father decide to go back to the Unified States and take Ms. Moore and Rachel's mother back to their camp. Then things get exciting but I'm not going to spoil it for you. I really like Pathik in the novel because he has a big heart and he stands up for what he believes in.
This book has a similar dystopic feel as Hunger GamesWither, and possibly even The Giver. Fans of these books should read The Line if they haven't already and then read Away, because this book is a suspenseful must read!
