Covering the phones today ....

Our receptionist is out today so I'm on phone and greeting duty today so this will be quick.

Keeping with my "clean out the TBR" reading, this one has been languishing on my Kindle for quite some time. In fact, I have it as an ARC from Netgalley. Now the book is a series and has a show on TV, the CW channel to give you an idea of the production values and focus -- think pretty young adults angsting. Yeah, I'm a little behind. THE 100 by Cass Morgan. The first of a young adult dystopian series.
Ever since a devastating nuclear war, humanity has lived on spaceships far above Earth's radioactive surface. Now, one hundred juvenile delinquents -- considered expendable by society -- are being sent on a dangerous mission: to recolonize the planet. It could be their second chance at life...or it could be a suicide mission. Clarke was arrested for treason, though she's haunted by the memory of what she really did. Wells, the chancellor's son, came to Earth for the girl he loves -- but will she ever forgive him? Reckless Bellamy fought his way onto the transport pod to protect his sister, the other half of the only pair of siblings in the universe. And Glass managed to escape back onto the ship, only to find that life there is just as dangerous as she feared it would be on Earth. Confronted with a savage land and haunted by secrets from their pasts, the hundred must fight to survive. They were never meant to be heroes, but they may be mankind's last hope.

Published in 2013, it has 336 pages. It's rather fluffy for a dystopian, not really fleshed out which is probably why it was picked up for TV. :)  Each chapter is a different POV of the main four characters. It's going very quickly.

Snowing. Cold. Winter.

Much love,
