Pale Bricks by K.L. SteinGenre: Dystopian
They said it was for our own good. They lied. From the number sewn into her sleeve to the scraps of food in her rations, Simone’s days in the run-down protection camp have been dictated by the harsh, restrictive demands of the Colonel. Unfortunately, Simone doesn’t like following rules. A defiant break from camp brings her face to face with the ivory tower and the festering secrets of their dark history. Faced with a forgotten past, a rippling effect of consequences from her disobedience, and a bleak future of mind-numbing factory work, Simone must decide—how much she is willing to give up for protection? Pale Bricks is a heart-rending novel that lovers of dark, post-apocalyptic dystopia won’t want to miss.
