When She Woke - Hillary Jordan

When She Woke - Hillary Jordan (2011)

Hannah Payne lives in the future, and after being caught having an abortion, she is punished by being chromed.  Waking up, all of her skin has been turned bright red, letting everyone know of her crime and making her isolated and scorned by all, including her family.

Once she begins to fend for herself, Hannah begins to question her religous upbringing, her faith, her past relationship and finds new friendships and experiences.   It was this part of the book that I found the most interesting, the development of her character and growth.  The world isn't always black and white, and she begins to see lots of grey.

A 4/5 for this first of the autumn reads.
