Vivica Wilkins is on the run in a not-so-distant future. As a fugitive, she has no choice but to join an elite group of rebels that are hell-bent on making change happen. As she sticks with the rebels, she begins to realize that maybe she should start making some changes alongside them. But to do so, she must change her entire appearance: her face, her eyes, and even her voice. She must become Fredrica Lloyd, an undercover agent who must infiltrate the government. In this suspenseful journey, Vivica truly begins to learn what it means to fight for what you believe in, along with what it means to trust God.
When I started reading this book, I had no idea that it was actually a sequel until I reached the author’s acknowledgements at the end. I was glad to see that even though I didn’t read the first book, the descriptions in the sequel were so informative that I wasn’t confused at all. I was also quite surprised that it was a faith-based book. The majority of young adult novels aren’t faith-based, so this was an interesting and pleasant change of course from most YA books.
The plot was what first got me interested in this book. Any novel that has a dystopian universe grabs my attention, as it is my favorite genre. From start to finish, this story was an exciting, heart-pounding adventure that never lost my interest. It especially ramped things up in the last few chapters, in which I was eager to read word after word until the epic finale.
The protagonist, Vivica, was a very intriguing character to read. The way the author wrote her made her lifelike and believable. I felt her struggles as if I was right alongside her in the novel.
With non-stop action and excellent writing, The Liberation is sure to impress.
