The Girl in the Road

Byrne, Monica. The Girl in the Road. Crown, 2014

In a futuristic world, there is an energy collecting "road" between India and Africa. Two different women from opposite sides of this road travel to the same town for completely separate reasons. These are their stories.

This book was a bit too "out there" for me. There wasn't enough explained, and I didn't care enough about either character to want to keep reading. I would recommend this book to older teens or new adults, especially those who enjoy literary fiction.

Recommended for: older teens, adults
Red Flags: violence, one character is probably bipolar and the reader spends a lot of time inside that character's head
Overall Rating: 2/5 stars
