Description

Sometime in the future, after wars and fires have devastated the earth, a lonely, windswept island in the north is populated solely by women. The women have survived against all odds by working hard in their fields. Their lives are tough. Among these women is a group of teenage Trackers-expert equestrians and archers-who are in training to protect their shores from the enemy. The enemy, they've been told, is men. When these girls come upon a partially buried home from the distant past, they are fascinated by the strange objects-high-heeled shoes, teen magazines, makeup-found there. What are they to make of these mysterious things, which introduce a world they have never known? And what does it mean for their strict society where friendship is forbidden and rules must be obeyed-at all costs? From the Compact Disc edition.

Professional reviews

"Justine Eyre portrays a teenage girl's emotional uncertainty as she comes of age in a postapocalyptic culture of warrior women. Supplies continue to dwindle each year, and trackers-in-training, like Keller, walk a thin line between being powerful and self-sufficient while not appearing too independent of thought. And there's always the fear of being chosen to procreate. At times, Eyre evokes Keller's anger and confusion, but much of the time her choice for Keller's internal voice sounds too brittle--not the voice of a young female warrior. In contrast, her voicings of the other characters work well, keeping listeners engaged. L.E. (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine"
