Author Angela D. Shelton definitely kept me on the edge of my seat. Overall, The Rise of Y is a well-written page-turner as it explores the possibilities of life in a tightly-controlled, post-Judeo-Christian, American society. The book is reminiscent of George Orwell’s “1984.”

On the downside, though, Shelton overuses many adjectives throughout her narrative, making the reading tedious at times. In spite of this, the book vividly brings to life the environment in which the main character, Lexi Verity, finds herself.

There is real tension, frustration, and anger as Lexi rebels more and more against what everyone expects of her, from her father all the way to those in charge of the new order, the Imperium.

Romance is a main element woven throughout this dystopian book. The Imperium selects who Lexi marries when she turns 18, and with her forced marriage to a stranger comes an expectation of her quickly becoming pregnant. While nothing is explicitly inappropriate, the undercurrent of expected sexual activity in the marital context is discussed often, both before and after the ceremony. Lexi struggles with her impossible dream of choosing a spouse for love versus what is forced upon her.

As a Christian, I was eager for a clear presentation of the gospel when the author hinted about God in the story. At several important moments, I anticipated she would insert the truth of Jesus Christ very clearly. That was not the case. If this is the only book she completes in her series, or people don’t read additional titles, unbelievers are left hanging without knowing Who God is and why that matters.

I hope for a stronger presentation of the Gospel in the next book.

In a world where the government controls where you live, who you marry, and what job you have, Lexi’s father has pushed her to excel. However, Lexi doesn’t want an administration job and fails the placement test, never imagining the series of events she sets into motion. Balancing duty and a yearning for freedom, she navigates a treacherous path, fighting not only for her world but for the person she is destined to become as the foundations of the Imperium tremble.
It’s been awhile since I read a dystopian book, and I was in the mood for a change. This reminded me strongly of Divergent, where a test decides the rest of your life. Lexi believes she will enjoy growing food and working with plants, but she hates having her life controlled. I enjoyed how much she behaved like a teenager her age would. It made the story believable.
The story moves at a fast pace. Things happened that I wasn’t expecting, but there were also many things that were predictable. I didn’t realize but this is a Christian Distopian tale. There is a bit of a bastardization of Christianity that didn’t appear until the last half and I didn’t like it.
Overall, it was an easy read. I would recommend it to readers looking for a Christian Dystopian story. I recieved an adcance copy from the publisher through LIbraryThing’s Early Reviewer program. All opinions expressed are my own.

This definitely had some major 'Hunger Games' and 'Divergent' vibes while also having its own unique storyline and plot. It was an amazing read and I can't wait for the next one in the series to come out! The main character is an incredibly strong female lead named Lexi. I don't want to give anything away because I strongly encourage everyone to check it out for themselves, but I will say there is a test that all the characters in the book must take at a certain age. This test decides her class and career path. Everyone is also set up in an arranged marriage.

Lexi's results do not turn out the way she hoped or planned and she is not a fan of who she has been set up with for marriage. Though she was adamant that she wasn't going to like whoever they did set her up with. I actually think being paired with Reeves was a blessing. Because while part of his motivations absolutely had to do with him taking his vows and arranged marriage very seriously, he was also just a really good match for Lexi. I can't wait to read more about what happens to them next!

I'm also very interested in where things are going to go from the very unpredictable and shocking ending everyone who reads this book is left with. There is a rebellion in the air and I can't wait to see how Lexi and Reeves navigate their lives and choices as things continue moving forward. I strongly recommend this book and am eagerly awaiting the next one! ( )

5 Stars!

I received this book for free from the author through LibraryThing. The following is my honest review.

Wow! Rise of the Y kept me on the edge of my seat - and up well past my bedtime. It is the best YA novel I've read all year.

Lexi, the main character, faced a huge revelation about her community, which is overseen by the government called the Imperium. The Imperium controls all aspects of their citizens lives under the guise of protection. When Lexi finds out what really happens to those deemed worthless, she has to make a choice: continue with the status quo to protect herself and her loved ones or rise and fight.

There were a few times that I wanted to shake some sense into Lexi, who tended to be emotionally excitable and didn't think things through without going off the rails.

I hope there's a sequel in the works soon! I recommend for ages 15+. ( )

I am looking forward to where Angela goes with this series. Yes, she incorporates parts of the dystopian genre that other authors have written about as well, but she brings them together in a way that manages to feel fresh.

I love the support that Reeves offers to Lexi, and I am most excited to see how their relationship continues to develop throughout the series. Now to patiently wait for book 2 especially after that slight cliffhanger. ( )
