Here's the blurb:
Toronto is a crowded place. Plenty of eyes and ears all around. Plenty of chances to be overheard. Be careful what you say...
In this spooky Canadian page turner, 16-year-old Terry Conner finds herself the target of an unspeakable evil, bent on enslaving all of humanity. Her crime? Nothing less than speaking her mind. Faced with the choice between silencing herself or fighting back, Terry chooses to fight.
The Good Fight reminds me of classic Twilight Zone episodes which use the ideas of Communism mixed with current event concerns as the horror element. It's very effective. From the start I was really aghast at the violent bullying that teen characters were going through, and the way that the bullying tied into the logical extrapolation of what is actually being taught in schools today.
It's a tense and gripping Young Adult horror / scifi novel - the characters were in real physical danger. I liked that the two main teen characters are the way they are because of how they were raised, and I like it a lot that they jump into action and try to make smart decisions.
The horror aspect takes a lot of suspension of disbelief, but it is worth it. This is a great Halloween weekend read for teens and adults and a great starting point for discussing what is going on in the education system.
