Review- The Farm by Emily McKay

Life was different in the Before: before vampires began devouring humans in a swarm across America; before the surviving young people were rounded up and quarantined. These days, we know what those quarantines are—holding pens where human blood is turned into more food for the undead monsters, known as Ticks. Surrounded by electrical fences, most kids try to survive the Farms by turning on each other… And when trust is a thing of the past, escape is nearly impossible. Lily and her twin sister Mel have a plan. Though Mel can barely communicate, her autism helps her notice things no one else notices—like the portion of electrical fence that gets turned off every night. Getting across won’t be easy, but as Lily gathers what they need to escape, a familiar face appears out of nowhere, offering to help… Carter was a schoolmate of Lily’s in the Before. Managing to evade capture until now, he has valuable knowledge of the outside world. But like everyone on the Farm, Carter has his own agenda, and he knows that behind the Ticks is an even more dangerous threat to the human race... Review 5-Stars***** Instant Fan~ I Really Enjoyed This Book_ Grabbed and held my attention from page one and had it read in two days. The Characters were likable- The Plot was Outstanding- Great Dialog- I'm dying for more........ I could not get enough of this book and it had me on edge ;) I recommend this book to everyone* (Worth Every Word Read) I would love to see this one made into a movie. The Author has a fantastic writing style though for me the first couple chapters seemed a little crammed or off somehow, but after that smooth sailing to the end. I'm ready to read whatever comes next and I can not wait. If your on the fence with this one- don't be: The Farm is Unique and Should not be Compared- making an awesome addition to your shelves.
