[Preview] Taken by Erin Bowman

January 13, 2013

Taken (Taken, #1)

…a unique science fiction adventure with a dash of Hunger-Games-style rebellion (except without all the ridiculousness that was Mockingjay). ..

…a YA dystopian novel from the point-of-view of a male character.

… a romantic subplot that didn’t get in the way of the science fiction adventure.

– Alicia Brewster, Goodreads

Bowman, Erin.  Taken. 352pp.  Harper Teen.  April 16, 2013.  9780062117267.  This book is getting hugh raves on Goodreads (www.goodreads.com) and has earned a 5-star rating for 62% of those that have rated it, so it looks like the next hot dystopian book on the market.  Can’t wait to get the ARC and find out for myself!
