"When She Woke" by Hillary Jordan

When She Woke by Hillary Jordan is about Hannah, who had an abortion.  She refused to name the father or the doctor who performed it.  As a consequence of her crime of murder, she had to live her life as a red chrome (She turned red!).  A chrome is a criminal whose skin color is genetically altered to match the color of their crime and released back into society.  How Hannah deals with this, the people she meets and the decisions she makes is the basis for this book.

I really enjoyed When She Woke a lot!  It's a real page turner to say the least.  I cared about Hannah and looked forward to reading more.  I also thought the ending was really good!

  1. The moment I looked at this book, I knew that it was going to be good. The setting of this story gives us a glimpse of how the world would be if we were to be governed by the Church. Hannah's journey is a physical and spiritual one that is so inspiring to me. It's a wonderful modern interpretation to "The Scarlett Letter" that is worth reading.
