Gunslinger Girl

Bok av Lyndsay Ely
James Patterson presents a genre-bending, action-packed debut -- and introduces YA's new favorite, kick-ass heroine: Serendipity Jones, the fastest sharpshooter in tomorrow's West. Seventeen-year-old Serendipity "Pity" Jones inherited two things from her mother: a pair of six shooters and perfect aim. When her father attempts to marry her off to a stranger, she runs away from their humble farming commune and ends up in the most dangerous, decadent city on the continent: Cessation (a lawless Las Vegas). Pity becomes the star of the Theater Vespertine as a trick sharpshooter like Annie Oakley, and there she finds fame, friendship and--what she most wanted--belonging. But there's a darker side to the Theater...The Finale. Every so often the fighting factions of Cessation have to be kept in line with a little demonstration, a nightmarish public execution. And Pity has a starring role...
Jag plockade upp denna bok mest på grund av det läckra omslaget! Men inte kunde jag gissa att en så bra bok dolde sig inuti.

Boken utspelar sig efter ett andra inbördeskrig i USA och vi får följa unga Serendipity, kallad Pity och hennes resa mot friheten från en tyrannisk far.

Jag gillar den starkt.
