When She Woke

When She Woke
by Hillary Jordan
352 pages

I could not put this book down! In a possibly not so distant future US, Hannah Payne has just been turned into a Chrome. Chromes are criminals who have been injected with a virus that turns their color a certain color-each color represents a certain level of criminal activity. Hannah has been turned Red-for the murder of her unborn child. Facing the prejudice that comes with being a Chrome, Hannah starts to question everything she was raised to believe, mainly her faith. I think the main question of the book is: is free will rebellion against God or a gift from Him? Hannah is someone I think everyone can relate to because everyone has questioned their beliefs at some point, or faltered in their faith. I think it's just human nature.
