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.

Sixteen 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. These books look they are right up my alley! Thanks for the intro!

  2. 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!

    1. I love how there seem to be more books doing that, as it seems very relevant to today's world!

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