It's the 24th century, and humans, with the help of artificial intelligences (A.I.s) have finally created the perfect society. To make equally perfect citizens for this world, the elders have created History Camps: full-sized recreations of cities from Earth’s distant pasts. Here teens live the way their ancestors did, doing the same dirty jobs and experiencing the same degradations. History Camps teach youths not to repeat the mistakes that almost caused the planet to die. But not everything goes to plan.

 

Fans of speculative adventure, like The Hunger Games and The Giver, will love The Lens and the Looker.

 

Continue the Verona Trilogy adventure with The Bronze and the Brimstone, and keep your eyes peeled for the third book, coming sometime this fall …

Thanks Jeremy, Spec, and JfroJeff for making this another awesome Friday.  I read "The Vow" earlier this week and really enjoyed it.  At 107 pages, it is a quick read for anyone looking for an inspiring true story.

by lcpsoccermom on ‎07-20-2012 08:59 AM

That's so funny to read what his recommendation is - Lord of the Flies is the reason I dislike distopian literature so much. It takes all kind! But his book sounds very interesting.

by Greg1966GS on ‎07-20-2012 09:03 AM

Awesome Free Friday selections.  You guys have been on a roll.  Keep up the great selections.
