Praise for Blood Red Road
"It''s Mad Max and The Hunger Games meets True Grit. . . .The author moves between ruthless action and gorgeous, buttery narration. . . . In the hands of a lesser writer, that style might have dragged, but first-time author Young is talented, and she''s just getting started. . . .This is a must-read, where girls rescue boys, and where the future looms up full of hope and loss, struggles and archetypes that give the story a timeless, classic edge."
—The Globe and Mail
"Eerie and adventurous. . . on par with Suzanne Collins'' The Hunger Games and Paolo Bacigalupi''s Ship Breaker. . . .Blood Red Road has a cinematic quality that makes it white-hot. . . .The fervor is more than warranted."
"Brutal and thrilling."
—The Wall Street Journal
