WHERE TO BUY
Regress is the story of what it's like living under a government called the New Order that is banning creatives and one girl's journey to stop it. Tru Shepard is on the brink of turning seventeen, an age where the New Order gives everyone a shot that makes all creatives lose their gift even though they claim it's to make everyone safe from sickness. The New Order doesn't like creatives due to their nature of standing up to them but as Tru discovers that the shot is more than what they say it's for.
Tru is an average sixteen year old living with her parents, her brother and high wife in a little apartment in New Detroit when ten days before she turns seventeen, things start unraveling with her family. As she is coming home late from her best friends house one night and nearly getting caught by the police due to the curfew in place, she runs into Zared, a boy from her past, that explains to her that not everything is what it seems in the world. As people go missing and get killed trying to find out what is really going on, Tru discovers secrets about her family that put everyone in danger.
When Tru's Mother gets taken by the government, Tru even though she doesn't know if she can trust Zared fully just yet, they end up on the run together trying to figure everything out. As more secrets about who Zared is working for and what her best friend is, makes Tru want even more answers about everything. It all leads up to an explosive ending that will make you wish that the next book was out soon!
I really liked this book due to the action and story-line but I also felt some of the characters could have used some more backstory to them. The ending to this book will make you wish that the next book was already out so you will find out what happens to Tru! I could see this book and series make for a great movie series, yes it's that good of a book. When I first found out about this book, I kinda thought it would be just like the Divergent series but it's so much better in the way the story is told!
Thank You to SF Benson for making me a reader of your books and I can't wait to read the next book in this fabulous series!!
