Like all citizens since the Ruining, Carrington Hale knows the importance of this day. But she never expected the moment she’d spent a lifetime preparing for—her Choosing ceremony—to end in disaster. Ripped from her family, she’ll spend her days serving as a Lint, the lowest level of society. She knows it’s her duty to follow the true way of the Authority.

But as Carrington begins this nightmare, rumors of rebellion rattle her beliefs. Though the whispers contradict everything she’s been told, they resonate deep within.

Then Carrington is offered an unprecedented chance at the life she’s always dreamed of, yet she can’t shake the feeling that it may be an illusion. With a killer targeting Lints and corruption threatening the highest levels of the Authority, Carrington must uncover the truth before it destroys her. 



My Review

Whoa!!! Whoa, whoa, whoa!
Speechless….hows that for a review?!?
Doesnt work too well I suppose.
I have been waiting and anticipating Rachelle Dekker’s debut novel and …..whoa!
You see, I’ve been a fan of her dad for a while now, but we aren’t here to talk about Ted.
We’re here to talk about The Choosing.

In a word….spectacular!
Rachelle really sucked me in- big time.
I couldn’t put this book down and it had me reading late into the night…way, way past my bedtime.
The sign of a great book…”I’ll read just one more chapter..” only you read ten more and even then, you don’t want to stop.

Carrington’s world is as intriguing as it is haunting…rigid as it is ordered, but beneath the surface lies the truth. And the truth is dangerous.

I was so impressed at the powerful truths woven seamlessly throughout the story. Bravo Mrs. Dekker!!! You not only throughly entertained me, but you caused me to examine myself against the truth of the Savior.  Thank you! What a wonderful reminder that we belong to Him and oh…how He loves us.

Do not miss The Choosing! Absolutely one of my favorite reads this year. Get your copy today!
