REVIEW OF IMPERVIOUS BY HEATHER LETTO

Impervious (Ascension #1) by Heather Letto
Publication date: April 29th 2014
Genres: Dystopia, Post-Apocalyptic, Young Adult

Synopsis:

The residents of Impervious are the remnant—survivors of the War of Annihilation. And though the city is chockfull of pleasures to tantalize and entertain, a beast lurks in its corners haunting the residents with its presence. The Beast—a mysterious and terminal illness--has killed off most of Generations One, Two and Three. And as Gen-Four prepares to take the stage a provocative, yet questionable, new method to avoid an untimely death becomes a cultural rage. 

But Fran is counter-cultural. And living off the grid in true rebel fashion, her life is far from opulent. Scurrying through dark tunnels, searching for hot meals and ditching the holographic security team encompass most of her day. However, she views it as a healthy trade-off. Unaccountability means The Council can’t steal her sliver of hope--a belief that she’ll see The Epoch arrive before the beast can pull her into its fetid embrace. 

After losing her mother and then her Rebel mentor, however, she grasps painfully onto the splintered sliver, until a new hope is born. First through Pete. And then through a miraculous discovery. 

But the question still haunts her…

Can she outrun The Beast?
 

My Thoughts:

The theme of the novel reminds me of the "Hunger Games. The main character, Fran lives in the ventilation system of an underground  and has to work hard everyday to prevent being caught by the "Holographic Security System". Fran is a very strong willed teenager and is on a mission to release the grip of the "Council of Impervious" and eventually escape to the world outside that she is sure exists. I really enjoyed the novel, especially the relationship between Fran and Pete a rebel/boyfriend. I wonder what will happen to them in the next installment of the series.
