After crossing the Line, Rachel finds herself in a world where survival is never guaranteed – a world where bizarre creatures roam the woods and people have strange abilities. Everything has gone to ruin Away and the survivors have banded into warring clans. Rachel finds her father being held prisoner by a tribe of Others, and she and her new friends set out to rescue him. But when they cross back over the Line, Rachel and Pathik make a foolish decision, bringing them into further danger that can only be resolved with an unthinkable sacrifice.
An adventure filled with life-and-death choices, dark conspiracies, and heart-poundingly suspenseful moments, this sequel delivers.
"This worthy sequel to Hall’s The Line (2010) continues to build a dystopian world rich with suspense and moral choices . . . Her dystopian world comes across vividly, and her characters stand out as varied and real." — Kirkus
"Hall’s imaginative dystopian world takes the concepts of good vs. evil and modern vs. primitive into fresh territory with plenty of comparisons to today’s world . . . at the conclusion of Away, readers will find themselves eagerly hoping for a third installment." — VOYA Voice of Youth Advocates
