Cary’s Thoughts: ‘What’s Right Is Right.’ Or is it? In this dystopian world, where technology is everywhere – and not always your friend – Sonya Kantor is torn between two worlds. One world is the Aperture, where enemies of the current regime are sentenced to a life within it’s walls. The other is a chance to escape those walls by finding a young girl who was ripped away from her family as a child. As she skirts the issues between what she wants to do and what she needs to do, Sonya finds her own past isn’t what it seemed. “Poster Girl” is a powerful read that keeps the reader on their proverbial toes, not knowing who to trust and watching as Sonya learns a deeper understanding of both her past and her present.
A fallen regime. A missing child. A chance at freedom.
By the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Divergent, Poster Girl is a haunting adult dystopian mystery that explores the expanding role of surveillance on society – an inescapable reality that we welcome all too easily.
WHAT’S RIGHT IS RIGHT. Sonya Kantor knows this slogan – she lived by it for most of her life. For decades, everyone in the Seattle-Portland megalopolis lived under it, as well as constant surveillance in the form of the Insight, an ocular implant that tracked every word and every action, rewarding or punishing by a rigid moral code set forth by the Delegation.
Then there was a revolution. The Delegation fell. Its most valuable members were locked in the Aperture, a prison on the outskirts of the city. And everyone else, now free from the Insight’s monitoring, went on with their lives.
Sonya, former poster girl for the Delegation, has been imprisoned for ten years when an old enemy comes to her with a deal: find a missing girl who was stolen from her parents by the old regime, and earn her freedom. The path Sonya takes to find the child will lead her through an unfamiliar, crooked post-Delegation world where she finds herself digging deeper into the past – and her family’s dark secrets – than she ever wanted to.
