Review: Dark Parties by Sara Grant

Hardcover, 320 pages
Expected publication: August 3rd 2011 by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers

Sixteen-year-old Neva has been trapped since birth. She was born and raised under the Protectosphere, in an isolated nation ruled by fear, lies, and xenophobia. A shield "protects" them from the outside world, but also locks the citizens inside. But there's nothing left on the outside, ever since the world collapsed from violent warfare. Or so the government says...

Neva and her best friend Sanna believe the government is lying and stage a "dark party" to recruit members for their underground rebellion. But as Neva begins to uncover the truth, she realizes she must question everything she's ever known, including the people she loves the most.

Dark Parties took me by surprise. I am going to be completely honest, I had no clue what this book was about or who wrote it, or anything. I got the chance to read Dark Parties as part of the blog tour, and I am so happy I did. This is definitely a book to look out for. It's a GREAT summer read and a definite page turner.

Dark Parties is very suspenseful with a good and light romance. It's fast paced and keeps you guessing. It was very hard for me to put the book down once I picked it up. 

I am still just discovering dystopian stories, and from what I have read, Dark Parties was very different. Usually, they are against sex and reproduction, etc. But in Dark Parties at the age of sixteen you're an adult and they expect you to marry and have children. They want their little society to grow from within. No one is allowed outside of The Protectosphere and no one is allowed in. Neva and her best friend Sanna plot against the government and set out to discover the truth and fight for their freedom. Of course along the way, Neva discovers what love really is and who her heart really belongs too. 

I loved Dark Parties and the way that it ended, I can only imagine what is to come in the next book. A must read!!! :-) 

5 out of 5 stars!
