The Limit by Kristen Landon Book Trailer

Hardcover, 304 pages
Published September 7th 2010 by Aladdin  
(first published August 13th 2010)
 An eighth grade girl was taken today . . . With this first sentence, readers are immediately thrust into a fast-paced thriller that doesn't let up for a moment.

In a world not too far removed from our own, kids are being taken away to special workhouses if their families exceed the monthly debt limit imposed by the government. Thirteen-year-old Matt briefly wonders if he might be next, but quickly dismisses the thought. After all, his parents are financially responsible, unlike the parents of those other kids. As long as his parents remain within their limit, the government will be satisfied and leave them alone. But all it takes is one fatal visit to the store to push Matt’s family over their limit—and to change his reality forever.

Kristen Landon's The Limit brings the popular dystopian thriller genre to a middle grade audience.

A couple of weekends ago, I was got to meet the author of this book, Kristen Landon.  Mrs. Landon was very nice and talked about her writing process, her book, and her family.  She even read an couple of pages out of the book.  Now, The Limit is next one my "to-read" list as soon as I finish Divergent. So, keep an eye out for my book review on this one ;-)
