""The Glass Arrow" by Kristen Simmons plunges readers into a heart-wrenching and wholly startling new world. Aya's story is terrifying in the best possible way, and left me shuddering over the painful awareness of humanity's darkest capability, and yet not losing sight of its greatest potential. Simmons portrays a stunning heroine of strength and resilience that captivated me until the very last page."--Christina Farley, author of the YA bestseller "Gilded"

"There's much of Katniss Everdeen in Aya--a familiar strength and determination. Aya is an independent thinker, strong and self-reliant.... Fans of dystopian and postapocalyptic YA fiction will thoroughly enjoy this read."--"School Library Journal"

"Romance readers will find plenty to swoon over, while fans of dystopian futures will find this a compelling... read. Aya's fierce determination and ability to think quickly and creatively in crises make her a great role model, and her nature-based faith lends an interesting balance to the action-driven tale of social justice. Simmons creates sympathetic yet intriguingly flawed characters, and tweaks familiar dystopian elements to excellent effect."--"Booklist"

"This grim cautionary tale opens taut and suspenseful, with its heroine being hunted down like an animal, her adopted family slaughtered and scattered.... A world where girls and women are commodities to be sold and resold is frightening enough; more chilling are the girls who embrace their fate or the women who participate in the system for profit and status."--"Publishers Weekly

Reseña del editor

Once there was a time when men and women lived as equals, when girl babies were valued, and women could belong only to themselves. But that was ten generations ago. Now women are property, to be sold and owned and bred, while a strict census keeps their numbers manageable and under control. The best any girl can hope for is to end up as some man's forever wife, but most are simply sold and resold until they're all used up.

Only in the wilderness, away from the city, can true freedom be found. Aya has spent her whole life in the mountains, looking out for her family and hiding from the world, until the day the Trackers finally catch her.

Stolen from her home, and being groomed for auction, Aya is desperate to escape her fate and return to her family, but her only allies are a loyal wolf she's raised from a pup and a strange mute boy who may be her best hope for freedom . . . if she can truly trust him.

The Glass Arrow is a haunting, yet hopeful, new novel from Kristen Simmons, the author of the popular Article 5 trilogy.

The Glass Arrow is a book that challenges all that exists in YA literature and dares to be a most shocking and intense experience for readers… You NEED to have this on your book shelf NOW.

Trust me. You do.

Kristen Simmons is an author who knows how to write. Perhaps it’s a natural talent – (obviously) – but perhaps it also comes from her background of working in the field of mental health. She knows how people (real or fictional) think. With this knowledge, she is literally a puppet master of the mind. Kristen feeds on our most visceral fears about the current state and the future of our society and creates realistic stories based on those fears.

Do you ever find yourself wondering why characters act the way that they do, given their incredibly dramatic, life-altering, mentally challenging situations? Sometimes characters come across as completely unrealistic, overly heroic or lacking true human emotion. In these cases the author cannot convince us, the readers, that they are real. This is not the case with Kristen’s characters. They are put through the ringer – as are most characters in fiction – but they respond and behave as real people should when facing trauma or dire situations. It’s such a jarring, humbling position; being in the mind of those who are either breaking down or acquiring strength from their circumstances at the hands of such a skilled writer.

I also appreciate how Kristen challenges gender roles in society with her story. Just by reading the synopsis – “females are scarce and are hunted, then bought and sold at market for their breeding rights” – you know the subject matter is going to be controversial. But Kristen throws some irony into the mix, with a strong female leading character and men who are as imperfect as they are powerful. Many feminist discussions will result from reading her story, where it’s the men who are frequently presented as faceless, voiceless and “unthinking” beings – all attributes that have, historically, been placed on women. But at the same time, I don’t entirely see Kristen’s story as a “feminist” one, either. You will find similarities to various publicly accepted practices, such as geisha, pageantry and only beautiful woman being presented on film. With so much symbolism and parallels to our own society, I imagine that each reader will react to the book differently, based on their own ideals and personal experiences.

There is one thing I always look forward to when controversial books I adore are released: and that is all the chatter they are bound to create. I hope to chatter with all of you now that the book is finally here!

So whether or not you’ve read (or even enjoyed) the author’s first series, Article 5, I encourage you to add The Glass Arrow (a standalone novel!) to your TBR/Wish List today. It is more daring, more challenging, more… everything… than anything that has been released in 2015, thus far.

This book. I don't even know where to begin. This book literally had me stressed out for a good majority of the story. It's been quite awhile since a book has been able to do that for me. The Glass Arrow is basically a story where women are property. Upon reading the synopsis, I was a little uncomfortable by the whole idea, but Kristen Simmons pulls it off really well. She sucks you into her world with her brilliant storytelling, and I found myself actually believing that a world like this could exist. Simmons is a master at telling a Dystopian story. This book has a lot of symbolism, much of it extremely deep, and I'm sure I missed a lot of it and would probably have to do a re-read to catch some of the even deeper meanings. I found myself drawn in to Aya's character, loving her and respecting her. I loved Kiran and thought he made for an amazing love interest. Daphne was quite annoying, but just as she grew on Aya throughout the story, she started to grow on me as well. There were several twists and turns that I didn't see coming, and the idea of these people buying women as their playthings thoroughly disgusted me, which is what I think the author was going for.

Though I do not think our world as we now it today could ever descend into the type of world portrayed in the story, it did seem to parallel the world of human trafficking that does exist today. That instead of the world of human trafficking being this underground, illegal thing, it was actually the normal way of life for this society. That is very scary, and it makes my heart hurt so much for the people who are actually going through that today. The story also explores genetic modification, though to a much lesser degree. Certain classes of people in the story have been genetically modified, and basically tailored for their particular job. It's kind of an interesting concept, and I wish it had been a bigger part of the story.

All in all, fantastic book that I couldn't put down!

I was so intrigued by the premise of this book! Like, almost giddy, because I just knew that I would love it and it would sit on my favorites shelf; never to be loaned to anyone. Sadly, I just can’t say that I was really impressed by the story as a whole.

A world where women are scarce and a hot commodity? Yes, I would definitely love this because I know that there will be a kick-butt heroine to put men in there place. Aya is okay as a character. I mean, we spend most of this book with her character longing to be free. I think that I’ve read too many books this year where the heroine is just so awesome that I was really hoping this one would be even better. We get to know Aya pretty well, considering she’s planning things through and it’s just a waiting game. The problem? Too much waiting and not enough problem solving.

Getting excited about escaping, only to have the plan derail before it even gets to the tracks. Over and over, it went. This reminded me of one of those stories where someone is trapped on an island and a plane flies by but you can’t forge SOS in the sand quick enough, and you’re still stranded. Eventually, you escape and the undertaking begins. I can say that the last bit of this book picked up pace. There’s more world building and characters that come along. Aya has trust issues, and rightfully so, and you can feel her panic at being sold at an auction. No woman should be sold just for her gender. Hell, sold for anything, for that matter.

Overall, I don’t think that I will read this book again. It just wasn’t that exciting for me, but maybe others would enjoy it. Not sure on the recommendation. It has a great hook, just not executed well enough, in my opinion. Just an okay read for me.

This was the first book from this author that I have read & I mostly enjoyed it. The idea of girls/women not having any rights was something new and I like that this wasn't an "all or nothing" type of book. The main character could seem some what selfish but when you really look at her motivation (what she's been taught, where she lived, etc) you understand why she's so bent on looking out for herself. The secondary characters are also interesting, from a mute to a somewhat self indulgent brat and they help round out the plot. It was a quick read and I did find myself rushing through a few scenes because I felt like I knew what was coming. I think this would be a good read for a younger (14+) audience; it seemed like something I would have read as a freshman in hs.
5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Great book, I actually cared about characters 17 de abril de 2015

I really liked this book. The main character, Aya/Clover, lives in a world where women are treated as slaves. When they are young, they are sold for their virginity. Once they produce children, they are usually sent back to be sold again to someone else. Aya grew up in the mountains hiding from the trackers who find young women to sell. But she is found and sent to the Garden where she is prepped to be sold. While in solitary for creating disruption, she meets Kirian, a mute who works in the lowest class.
I really hope that a second book is written. It is left so that it could go either way. I'm hoping for a trilogy!
