How Samantha Smart Became a Revolutionary
August 30, 2017
“I’m nobody and everybody. My story—this story— is set nowhere and everywhere. I don’t exactly know how I got here but I can tell you this: if you’re not careful, if you’re just living your life thinking bad things happen to those other people and everything is going to be fine in your world, if you’re just going through the motions and not paying close attention to the details, then this story could be set where you live. And my fate can easily become yours.”
In this incisive pre-dystopian novel that has echoes of 1984 – where world events are driven by fear mongering and finger pointing, Dawn Green shows a society divided and opposed, a world eerily like our own. At the center of the turmoil is Samantha Smart, an ordinary girl who gets caught up in the struggle – and eventually becomes leader of the protest that faces off against the dark forces that are taking over her world.
