Pulse by Patrick Carman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Patrick Carman creates a barren, empty dystopian world where citizens are forced to move into States so the planet has a chance to reverse the effects of Global Warming. Living in the barren, desolated leftovers of society are the last hold outs, those people who refuse the lure of the States. Faith Daniels and her friends go to school in a ghost town, addicted to their Tablets, going to school so that a "teacher" can monitor them while they watch their lessons.
Trouble arises in the wonder twins of Wade and Clara, genetic athletic freaks. Over the course of time, Faith discovers she has a Pulse and with the help of Dylan, Hawk and the Drifters she will uncover a plot to destroy the States and end the balance between humans and the planet.
This is a good read that features a great cast, especially the villainous Wade and Clara. I am looking forward to reading the sequel. This has the potential to be a great series.
