Amanda Baranowksi Recommends

My book is Escape from Eden. It’s really interesting and action-packed. I like this book a lot!

Mia is a teenage girl who lives in a fundamentalist compound in South America. When she meets Gabriel, a troubled boy determined to escape, she gets thrown into a lot more than what she wanted.

I liked when they escaped, but had to return.

I recommend this book to anyone who likes books like The Hunger Games or any action-packed love story.

More about the book from Goodreads:

Since the age of ten, Mia has lived under the iron fist of the fundamentalist preacher who lured her mother away to join his fanatical family of followers. In Edenton, a supposed “Garden of Eden” deep in the South American jungle, everyone follows the Reverend’s strict but arbitrary rules—even the mandate of whom they can marry. Now sixteen, Mia dreams of slipping away from the armed guards who keep the faithful in, and the curious out. When the rebellious and sexy Gabriel, a new boy, arrives with his family, Mia sees a chance to escape.

But the scandalous secrets the two discover beyond the compound’s façade are more shocking than anything they ever imagined. While Gabriel has his own terrible secrets, he and Mia bond together, more than friends and freedom fighters. But is there time to think of each other as they race to stop the Reverend’s paranoid plan to free his flock from the corrupt world? Can two teenagers crush a criminal mastermind? And who will die in the fight to save the ones they love from a madman who’s only concerned about his own secrets?
