In this wrenching sequel to Divided We Fall, Danny and friends fight to defend Idaho from multiple threats!

At the end of Divided We Fall, Danny Wright's beloved Idaho had been invaded by the federal government, their electricity shut off, their rights suspended.

Yet what at first seems like a straightforward battle against governmental repression quickly grows more complicated, as more states secede, more people die, and Danny discovers the true nature of some of his new allies.

Chilling, powerful, and all too plausible, Burning Nation confirms Trent Reedy's place as a provocative new voice in YA fiction.

Read from the Book

From DIVIDED WE FALL TRILOGY: BOOK #2: BURNING NATION:A new roar tore through the sky above us -- an Apache attack helicopter blasting away. The road in front of us burst with sparks and chunks of pavement. I swerved into the left lane as bits of blacktop peppered the truck."They're trying to make us stop," I said. I put the pedal to the floor. The tunnel was in view. "They're speeding up!" Herbokowitz yelled."Look out!" Kemp shouted.Seconds later, the Apache dropped down out of the sky in front of us, hovering a few feet off the ground."Nice try," I said. The gunship hadn't turned its thirty-millimeter cannon on us yet, so I drove straight for it. My big truck with its reinforced body traveling at eighty miles an hour, up against this stationary helicopter with its thin hull? I'd knock it back to the mountain if I had to.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Burning Nation" As in Divided We Fall, Reedy spins an action-packed cautionary tale, allowing both state and federal viewpoints their strengths and weaknesses, stopping just short of condemning both sides while acknowledging the validity of their arguments. It's a complex story rooted in current events, all the more worrisome for its plausibility." -Publishers Weekly, starred reviewPraise for Divided We Fall *" [A] stunning trilogy opener... This cautionary tale screams immediacy and urgency, a page-turner that rapidly moves toward a catastrophic cliffhanger." -Publishers Weekly, starred review" Set in a not-too-distant future, the book mixes patriotism with incredible realism, creating an all-too-possible pre-dystopia. . . . Strong characters, a fast-paced narrative, and complex questions about what it means to be an American make Reedy's speculative novel a must-read." -School Library Journal
