All Things Now Living Blog Tour: Review and Kindle Fire Giveaway

About Rondi Bauer Olson's All Things Now Living:

Her whole life, Amy has been taught the people of New Lithisle deserve to die, but when she falls for Daniel, she determines to save him.

Sixteen-year-old Amy doesn't like anything to die -- she won't even eat the goats or chickens her mama has butchered every fall -- but she can't let herself pity the inhabitants of New Lithisle. In a few short months, the dome they built to isolate themselves from the deadly pandemic is predicted to collapse, but her whole life Amy has been taught it's God's will they die. They traded their souls for immunity to the swine flu virus and brought God's curse upon themselves by adding pig genes to their own.

Then, while on a scavenging trip with her father, Amy is accidentally trapped in New Lithisle. At first, her only goal is to escape. But when she meets Daniel, a New Lithisle boy, she begins to question how less-than-human the people of New Lithisle are.

Amy's feelings grow even more conflicted when she learns she didn't end up in New Lithisle by mistake. Her father is secretly a sympathizer and was trying to prevent the coming destruction.

My Thoughts: 
If you're a fan of young-adult fiction, you'll like All Things Now Living. It brings up many ethical questions, such as whether people are really human if they're given animal genes. Are some people's lives worth more than others? And who has the right to make the decision whether people live or die? It's not clear which side Amy should be on because nothing is ever clear-cut. She is an independent, feisty young girl who does what she must to save the people she grows to love and respect. With plenty of action and even a little romance, All Things Now Living will appeal to teens and young-adult book fans.
