About the Book:

Title:   Recoil

Author:  Joanne Macgregor

Publisher:  Independent

Release Date:  May 14th, 2016

Genre:  YA Dystopian, Romance

Book Description:
There’s more than one enemy and more than one war. The Game is real.

Three years after a series of terrorist attacks flooded the US with a lethal plague, society has changed radically.

year-old Jinxy James spends her days trapped at home – immersed in
virtual reality, worrying about the plague and longing for freedom. Then
she wins a war simulation game and is recruited into a top-secret
organisation where talented teenagers are trained to become agents in
the war on terror. Eager to escape her mother’s over-protectiveness and
to serve her country, Jinxy enlists and becomes an expert sniper of
infected mutant rats.

She’s immediately drawn to Quinn O’Riley, a
charming and subversive intelligence analyst who knows more about the
new order of government and society than he is telling. Then a shocking
revelation forces Jinxy to make an impossible decision, and she risks
losing everything.

Recoil is the first book in a young adult
dystopian romance trilogy, and makes great reading for lovers of Rick
Yancey (The Fifth Wave), Suzanne Collins (Hunger Games), and Veronica
Roth (Divergent).

  1. I love that this book mixes gaming with "reality." This book sounds like it has a strong POV character and promises a bit of romance too. Thanks for the post!

  2. Makes me wonder if she knew that winning the war simulation game would get her recruited or if it was a total surprise.
