Book Review- The Pledge by Kimberly Derting

Leave a Comment
In the violent country of Ludania, the classes are strictly divided by the language they speak. The smallest transgression, like looking a member of a higher class in the eye while they are speaking their native tongue, results in immediate execution. Seventeen-year-old Charlaina has always been able to understand the languages of all classes, and she's spent her life trying to hide her secret. The only place she can really be free is the drug-fueled underground clubs where people go to shake off the oppressive rules of the world they live in. It's there that she meets a beautiful and mysterious boy named Max who speaks a language she's never heard before . . . and her secret is almost exposed.

Charlie is intensely attracted to Max, even though she can't be sure where his real loyalties lie. As the emergency drills give way to real crisis and the violence escalates, it becomes clear that Charlie is the key to something much bigger: her country's only chance for freedom from the terrible power of a deadly regime

My Thoughts

The Pledge is one of the most awesome YA book of 2011.The cover is also really great, which is one of the reasons which led me to reading the plot and then finding myself reading the book. The book was intriguing and catches your attention and never lets it go. The main character, Charlie, has a special power which must be kept a secret from everyone and it was great to experience the story from her point of view. The pledge gets more and more interesting as the story unfolds. It was great read and I think Kimberly did a fab job of writing this book!
