Social Punk Blog Tour + Giveaway! Win iPad 3, Kindle Fire & More!

Ima would give anything to escape The Dome and learn what’s beyond its barriers, but the Chicago government has kept all its citizens on lockdown ever since the Scorched Years left most of the world a desert wasteland. When a mysterious group of hooded figures enters the city unexpectedly, Ima uncovers a plot to destroy The Dome and is given the choice between escaping to a new, dangerous city or staying behind and fighting a battle she can never win.

A futuristic, apocolyptic young adult novel that you will want to sink you teeth into!  Social Punk is generous with the world-building, which most first installments of a series do.  Within this novel, the setting is Chicago, but in the future.  Chicago is in a Dome because the rest of the world is Scorched.  All humans have computer chips in their brains.  So there is not alot of need for socializing because everytime your brain has a question, it immediately retrieves the answer. Also, everyone sees the world as a blank canvas.  They perceive their world as they see it, and it is.  Very cool.

So when a group of hooded figures enter the Dome, intent on destroying it, Ima needs to decide if she wants to stay or flee.  She's always wanted to know what is outside the Dome, she knows no other life.  But at what cost?

Social Punk is riveting and bursting with world-building details that will keep you glued to the pages.  The characters are likable but I can't wait to really get to know them better, hopefully in the next installment, Social Mob (July, 2012).  Definitely pick this one up! I really enjoyed it!!

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
