Dystopian YA books continue to be a trending genre among readers young and old. Throw in a post-apocalyptic plot and sprinkle in some human survivors and you’ve got a recipe for what everyone is reading. However, if you’re looking for something a bit different then author Jen Minkman might have what you need.
In her novella The Island, the first in her series, she incorporates teenagers who learn that most of their lives are based on lies. In order to learn the truth they must leave the only home they’ve known — the island — and search for the truth.

Because this is a novella and not full-blown book the plotline moves quickly. It’s not an in-depth page turner that will leave you wanting more, but Minkman does a decent job of crafting a dystopian story that passes as a free YA ebook to enjoy.
Please note that even though Jen Minkman is making her downloadable book available for free it might not be ok for you to re-distribute that book. Any mention by us of any content is in support of the copyrights holders, and we discourage copyright infringement.
