A girl. A gun. Monsters. When her farming community is consumed in the ruthless jaws of a corporate monster, 16-year-old Merit finds herself face to face with a different kind of beast, one possessing a human form but a mind bent on one thing and one thing alone: her destruction. Then a chance encounter with a legend turns her mad dash for survival into an odyssey of revenge A girl. A gun. Monsters. When her farming community is consumed in the ruthless jaws of a corporate monster, 16-year-old Merit finds herself face to face with a different kind of beast, one possessing a human form but a mind bent on one thing and one thing alone: her destruction. Then a chance encounter with a legend turns her mad dash for survival into an odyssey of revenge as she sets out to hunt down the men who destroyed all that she loves. But in pursuing the monsters, will she become one herself? Is it possible to embark on a journey of destruction without digging your own grave? In her beginning is their end. This action-packed adventure from an award-winning author takes you on a fast and furious journey through the Protectorate, a dystopian landscape wracked by environmental disaster, in the ruins of a place known as the Old Republic, where water is the most precious commodity and people are expendable pawns in the game of survival. Publishers Weekly's BookLife Prize calls it "riveting and haunting. Zienty's plot proceeds at a furious and exciting pace as Merit flees--and is pursued--through the bleak, dangerous New American Midwest. In a world governed by phobias and laws, her quest to find her purpose is successfully fleshed out in a meticulously imagined world. ... a fresh-feeling dystopian wonderland."

    Shameless self-promotion. But Kirkus liked it, too: https://www.kirkusreviews.com/book-re... as did Publisher's Weekly Book Life: https://booklife.com/project/children...

    Children of the Revolution is a great dystopian novel that shows the possible consequences of climate change and the resulting water scarcity in the United States. The “Hive” and its queen control the water, and thus have the power and control over the workers. The characters are strong and believable. As Merit searches for her purpose in this honeycomb of society, we root for her and civilization.

    This is a smartly crafted and well written dystopian book. The story is propelled by an intense main character’s intention and enhanced by an array of interesting characters along her journey.

    I was really drawn into this book even tho it is not what I usually read, really out of my wheelhouse. It would be a great "book club" book---so much to discuss!
