CBR III Review #151: The Line by Teri Hall
The Line suffered from a problem that a lot of young adult novels do. It treats it's audience like kids. The best YA books are ones that can be read and enjoyed by adults as well. The Line oversimplifies what is going on and doesn't really get to the heart of the problems and the issues surrounding the US. We get a glossary overview of what is occurring but that is about it. I want to read a dystopian novel that has fully created a new world, one that will suck you in and make you want to stay in the world as long as possible. The Line attempts this but falls short. There is a second novel in the series that is out, but the first novel felt so rushed I'm not sure I would enjoy the second novel.
