A heist so monumental, it may cost them everything… When Reed Paine is sent to a secret detention school for teens whose parents are branded enemies of the state, he doesn’t expect to find friendship – especially after coming face to face with Riley Paca, a girl who has every reason to hate him.

But when Reed, Riley and a few others start reading the old books they find in tunnels under the school, they begin to question what they are taught about the last days of America and the government that has risen in its place.   Then the government decides to sell the Liberty Bell and Reed and his friends risk everything to steal it – to take back their history and the liberty that has been stolen from them (Stealing Liberty/ Clean Reads).

In Stealing Liberty, Reed Paine is sent to a secret detention school for teens whose parents are nemeies of the state. Reed doesn’t expect to find friendship, and he certainly didn’t expect Riley Paca, a girl who has every reason to hate him, would become his friend. But when Reed and Riley find old books in the tunnels below the school, books that make them question everything they’ve been taught about this new world order and the government, they start to doubt if anything they’ve believed is actually true.

When the government decides to sell the Liberty Bell, Reed and his friends risk everything to steal it, and to take back their history and liberty.

This book was an amazing read, fast-paced, filled with amazing characters, and set in a dystopian world that isn’t too far-fetched but in fact seems like ours could easily transform into, which is a rather scary thought. The characters, in particular Reed, feel very realistic, and their emotions do too. They act and behave like real people, not just characters in a book.

The writing was phenomenal and really sucked me into the story. I can’t wait for the sequel.
