Quotes & Awards

  • “Jordan manages to open up powerful feminist and political themes without becoming overly preachy—and the parallels with Hawthorne are fun to trace.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Corrigan’s voice slowly matures as Hannah escapes and grows stronger and more self-reliant in a story that champions the empowerment of women.”


  • “It reads like a thriller, and one that makes you think hard, to boot. I’ve already placed this one on my favorite-books-for-book-clubs list.”


  • “Chillingly credible…Jordan’s feverishly conceived dystopia holds its own alongside the dark inventions of Margaret Atwood and Ray Bradbury.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • Selected for the October 2013 Indie Next List

    " Really good! Very unusual premise... Thought provoking "

    " Interesting concept in a future world of "coloring" criminals according to their crime. While futuristic, one can imagine how a government could stray so far from the founding principles. Main character finds independence and personal answers to questions she knew had to be asked. I want to read Mudbound by the same author now.Mudbound "

    " The first quarter of this book was so promising. The rest? Pretty close to terrible. "

    " this is a great read. I highly recommend it if you're into futuristic fiction. I loved the depiction of society and religion and all of the very different heroes that came into play. "
