Hit In order to save her mother, a teen is forced to become an indentured assassin in this sizzling “movie ready” (Kirkus Reviews) dystopian thriller.No one reads the fine print. The good news is that the USA is finally out of debt. The bad news is that it was bought out by Valor National Bank, and debtors are the new big game, thanks to a tricky little clause hidden deep in the fine print of a credit card application. Now, after a swift and silent takeover that leaves 9-1-1 calls going through to Valor voicemail, they’re unleashing a wave of anarchy across the country. Patsy didn’t have much of a choice. When the suits showed up at her house threatening to kill her mother then and there for outstanding debt unless Patsy agreed to be an indentured assassin, what was she supposed to do? Let her own mother die? Patsy is forced to take on a five-day mission to complete a hit list of ten names. Each name on Patsy’s list has only three choices: pay the debt on the spot, agree to work as a bounty hunter, or die. And Patsy has to kill them personally, or else her mom takes a bullet of her own. Since yarn bombing is the only anarchy in Patsy’s past, she’s horrified and overwhelmed, especially as she realizes that most of the ten people on her list aren’t strangers. Things get even more complicated when a moment of mercy lands her with a sidekick: a hot rich kid named Wyatt whose brother is the last name on Patsy’s list. The two share an intense chemistry even as every tick of the clock draws them closer to an impossible choice. An absorbing, frightening glimpse at a reality that is eerily just steps away from ours—Hit is a taut, suspenseful thriller that absolutely mesmerizes from start to finish.
I keep up with what my teen reads, and sometimes we share the really good stuff! Like this dystopian thriller from Delilah S. Dawson. This is not a wholesome feel good story that skirts the edges of the real world. It's scary. It's "what if....." on steroids. Told from the prospective of a 17 year old girl who finds herself in an impossible situation, doing things she couldn't possibly have found in her worst nightmares, in a world that can't possibly have gone thi..
It's a fact that 1% of the population controls 99% of the wealth. That reality makes the premise of this book all the more scary because it could easily happen. Imagine you've been just getting by your whole life. Your father left the picture when you were four and your mom has had jobs that didn't pay that much. You've been working in a pizza joint since you turned fourteen, using a good portion of your earnings to help with expenses. After your mother is fired by..
I enjoyed reading this and read it pretty quickly. It's like brain candy! There's a wacky premise, some decent action and underneath it a 'this is really messed up' feel.Audience: Teenagers, pleasure readers, and Delilah Dawson fans (I saw your panel at the SW convention and thought I'd read some of your stuff!)Sex: no, this is the teen romance/angst take on Bonnie and Clyde; they live in a dark world and can't have nice things.Violence: lots - the main character..
