Book Review: City of Savages

[received Advance Reader's Copy at ALA Midwinter 2015. Review originally published at Goodreads]

This story, told from the perspective of two sisters, tells of a New York that has survived after devastation in the Third World War. The young women and their mother, who have worked hard to maintain some freedom in a highly regimented community of survivors, learn that not all in their reduced worldview, or the much greater world outside the confines of Manhattan, is as it seems.

I really enjoyed this book. The tale is more compelling for having the points of view of two strong - but strong in very different ways - female characters.

City of Savages, by Lee Kelly. Published February 3, 2015 by Saga Press, a brand new imprint of Simon and Schuster. I attended a preview of Saga's debut lineup while at ALA Midwinter 2015, and it looks AMAZING.
