Fierce September

I’ve just resintly finished reading the second book in the Juno of Taris series.

The second book, Fierce September is one of the best books I’ve ever read, including Juno of Taris.

Juno, and all the other people of Taris have left their island and are heading for outside. The ship they are on is full of technology that amazes them and makes them yearn to know more.

The young people are entranced despite the hate campaign against them- they love the fashions, the technology and, best of all for Juno, the freedom from control.

But only days after they arrive, a deadly pandemic hits in the country they are living in, Wellington, New Zealand, and of course, they are blamed by all the people.

Juno is shocked to find the island held more secrets than any of them knew. She wants to bury her head, ignore what she discovered and forge ahead to find her own place in this new world.

But Juno finds she can’t stay hidden in the back round when danger threatens the people of Taris, bombs, protesters, the hate campaign and most of all, the people.

It’ll take all the courage and the determination Juno and her friends can give to save their people.

Juno of Taris

Juno, one of the 500 people on the remote island of Taris wants answers, like why they must shave their heads every week, why they are not allowed to learn to read and why they have no contact with the outside world after it was demolished,but her questions bring danger.

Juno yearns to know the answers, and when she and her friends complain, they are withdrawn from.

The more she lies, complains and disagrees, the more her least favourite of all the people on Taris, Hilto, hates her and wants to kill her.

When her parents are allowed to have a baby, Juno helps them choose what embryo they want, she finds parents she likes, but her parents disagree, but when there is an earthquake that shakes their whole island, Juno does something that could get her in lots and lots of trouble or worse…….

I think this book is really good and it is full of twists that will blow your mind!

This book should be read by 11/12 year olds and up because there is minimum violence and a little bit of swearing (take no notice of it because it’s such a good book!)

This book deserves a 10 out of 10 because I cant find any thing wrong with it!
