My Review:Reviewed by Fil Piccolo
Sovereignty by Anjenique Hughes is about a futuristic earth and a rogue young man Goro who rebels against the sole government of his time and wants to see its demise.
A totalitarian government named Sovereignty is governing the earth, where futuristic technology allows the government to literally see and hear everything its citizens do. Goro, a young man who was raised in a family distrusting of Sovereignty, does what he can to stop this regime in his corner of the world. But can he do more and how? Little does he know he is to become a menace to Sovereignty’s continued existence.
Sovereignty certainly fits the YA dystopian genre. The characters deal with issues that young readers can connect with. It was also enjoyable to read a book where there is a family life that's not dysfunctional. The story’s futuristic technology is not what makes this book a must read but rather how young people do have tough choices to make and how they can make a difference for themselves and others.
