A Girl Called Fearless PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

A Girl Called Fearless free pdf Avie Reveare has the normal life of a privileged teen growing up in L.A., at least as normal as any girl's life is these days. After a synthetic hormone in beef killed 50 million American women ten years ago, only young girls, old women, men and boys are left to pick up the pieces. The death threat is past, but fathers still fear for their daughters' safety, and the Paternalist Movement, which was begun to "protect" young women, is taking over all the choices they make. Like all her friends, Avie still mourns the loss of her mother, but she's also dreaming about college and love and what she'll make of her life. But when her dad contracts her to marry a rich, older man to raise the money to save his struggling company, her life suddenly narrows to two choices: be trapped in a marriage with a controlling politician, or run. Her lifelong friend, student revolutionary Yates, urges her to run to freedom over the border to Canada. He's always believed she's fearless and will help her escape if she's willing. As their friendship turns to passion, the decision to leave becomes harder and harder. Running away is incredibly dangerous and it's possible she'll never see Yates again. But staying could mean death. Romantic, thought-provoking, and frighteningly real, A Girl Called Fearless is a speculative thriller about fighting for the most important things in life - freedom and love.
