Someone must die before another can be born…
As sea levels rise and livable landmasses shrink, the Reorganized United States of America has instituted population control measures to ensure there are sufficient resources and food to sustain the growing population. Birth authorization must be paid for and obtained prior to having a child. Someone must die before another can be born, keeping the country in a population neutral position at what experts consider to be the optimal population. The new laws are enforced by a ruthless government organization known as Pop Con, responsible for terminating any children resulting from unauthorized births, and any illegals who manage to survive past their second birthday, at which point they are designated a national security threat and given the name Slip.
But what if one child slipped through the cracks? What if someone knew all the loopholes and how to exploit them? Would it change anything? Would the delicate resource balance be thrown into a tailspin, threatening the lives of everyone?
And how far would the government go to find and terminate the Slip?
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
Once in a generation, if that, comes a writer so outstanding in all that he or she writes, this is the case of David Estes. I am overwhelmed by the superior writing skills and amazing story teller he is. If you haven’t guessed I want you to read this book so please do.
OMG! I couldn’t put it down. I’m downloading Grip as I write this review. Great character development..you actually care about the players in this book. Awesome storyline that keeps you riveted from the very first page. Read this book!
This book caught my attention and I liked it so much that I am now almost half through the next one. I think that should say it all, good book, reading the second and planning on the third.
Slip has many strengths, but I was especially impressed by the character development. I felt like I understood the motives of all the characters and I could understand why the main character considered his friends like family. I loved all their different personalities. In addition, the author did a good job explaining why his father did what he had to do so that his son could survive and the impact of his actions on his family.
I find it hard, most times, to stick with an author because I’m pretty easily bored. Mr. Estes definitely is an exception and has me hooked, though. Action-packed, surprises throughout, dystopian–all ingredients for a great book! On to Grip!
