About the Book:

After the destruction of the American nation by bionic Frankenstein beasts called Indomitus soldiers, seventeen year old Montana native Kody Ryan finds herself stuck in the middle of a war battling the creatures who slaughtered her family. Along with her nerdy cousin, Joel she captures the Indomitus solider who murdered her family. The monster soldier deserves to die, but during torture he mutters the name of Kody’s dead boyfriend, Tripp Kelly. Kody finds herself torn between her duty to serve her nation and her gut feeling to find out the truth.

About the Author:

Writing is passion and what better way to live life than passionately? Claire Garner lives in a small, quiet town in the south with her family, insufferably adorable corgi-mix, and a gang of plotting, elderly cats. Not quite so young anymore herself, Claire writes YA fiction as it has been her favorite peaceful-happy place for decades. Her hopes for the future are to give the young adult community a place inside her stories where they too can take temporary leave from reality and connect with characters who experience the same struggles as they do in every-day teenagedom.

Author's Note:

This is the extremely rough draft of my first ever novel--even the "About the Book" description--so I would love honest feedback, what to keep and what just needs to be thrown in the fire. As with all writing, nothing in this draft is permanent and is subject to change about as much as the weather in south Mississippi.

Requested feedback Criteria: Overall Feedback, Point of View, Voice, Character Development, Plot, Dialogue, Pacing, Setting, Continuity
