Book Reviews: Counteract & Resist

Calling all book lovers!
If you've been reading my blog for any length of time, you know that one of my favorite pastimes is reading. Young Adult novels have a special place in my heart because they were my scope of focus for so many years in my 5th grade classroom - plus I just downright enjoy them :)

I have a GREAT new series for you to check out by author Tracy Lawson.
If you're looking for a gripping dystopian thriller with just the right balance of adventure, romance, and intrigue- have I got a book series for you!
In Counteract (Book One of The Resistance Series) the Office of Civilian Safety and Defense (OCSD) has guarded the public against the rampant threat of terrorism for the last fifteen years with the full backing of the US government. Their carefully crafted list of Civilian Restrictions means no concerts or sporting events, no travel, no social media, no cash transactions, and no driver's licenses for eighteen-year-olds Tommy and Careen. The OCSD has even outlawed grocery stores, all in the name of safety.
Now, there's a new threat-airborne chemical weapons that could be activated at any time. But the OCSD has an antidote: just three drops a day is all it takes to stay safe. It's a small price to pay for safety. Or is it? (dun dun dun!)

Here's the book trailer:

Book Two, Resist, {which was released TODAY!} picks up this fast-paced dystopian series with the resistance forming against injustice. After their plan to rescue a group of dissenters imprisoned by the OCSD spins out of control, Tommy and Careen are on the run, dodging the quadrant marshals in a headlong dash for the remote mountain headquarters of the Resistance.
Their budding relationship is tested when an attempt to spark a revolution goes awry, and the pair move toward an inevitable confrontation with the forces that terrorize the nation. Will their differing viewpoints drive a wedge between them? And where does love fit in when you’re trying to overthrow the government? 

Once you start, you won't want to put these books down!
