"Death Thieves by Julie Wright is such a fantastic read,
perfectly paced and packed with emotion, intrigue, and
characters I fell in love with. The premise is strong, a twist
on time travel that's both original and fascinating. Summer Rae
felt so real to me, and as brave as she is, it was her sense of
humor that I loved most. Everyone needs to read this amazing

"You're dead, Summer Dawn Rae."
When Summer Rae is stolen from the moment of her own death and
taken to a future where mankind is dying, it is with the hope
that she, and other teenagers like her, can save it. But after
only a short time in the future, Summer discovers a darker side
to the altruistic reasons behind her abduction. She is
determined to fulfill her purpose in a world gone literally mad,
but can an ordinary girl save a whole world when she only cares
about saving one person?
Sometimes you come across a book that makes you think. It makes
you think about your actions and the difference that one person
can make. This book did that for me.It was a little bizarre at
first, with Summer being in a car accident, and being taken to
the future to restart the human race.
Summer is a teen who is dealing with some hard things. She and
her twin sister, Winter, live with a relative. Their father has
not been a part of their lives and their mother has passed away.
They are different in personality, but bonded and there for each
Summer is a little rebellious. She does not take things at face
value. She questions. She follows her conscience. She pushes the
limits. Her personality makes a very interesting story. I love
that she is a strong character with high morals. She doesn't
give in or up when faced with hard choices. She takes the
difficult road to make things better for society, instead of
thinking of just herself. She looks beneath the surface of a
problem and tries to find solutions.
FUll of twists and turns and unexpected craziness its a great
young adult novel that is definitely worth the read.
If you are into history you will love the nazi german
futuristicness. If you are into strong women that can change
their fate you will love it.
