The Breeders

The Breeders - Katie French Review of the Breeders

Star Rating: 3 stars

The opening starts in a barren landscape. Dust, poverty and hunger where the three things I felt, yet the house was filled with love.
In a world where girls are taken to be used as breeders no-one is safe so Riley pretends to be a boy, as she is the last free girl hidden in plain sight, under the sheriff’s nose who is evil. Clay the sheriff’s son helps riley out and goes with her after her mother and auntie are taken, but riley and Ethan survive and go in search of her family.

I didn’t care much for clay I found him shallow and childish, he couldn’t seem to make up his mind about Riley or his dad for that matter, I found he managed to get under my skin.

Riley is headstrong and her devotion to her family is unshakable through her journey of trying to save her mum from the breeders she gets into tons of trouble and to make things worse she has her eight year old brother to take care of and Ethan loves to moan.

Overall it was an intriguing read something different.
