Swipe - Dystopian Thriller for Middle Grade Readers

In a location once known as North America lies the American Union, a country formed to end total war and famine.  In the A.U., children become citizens at thirteen years of age by receiving The Mark.  The Mark allows citizens to go to school, see a doctor, and even buy food and concert tickets.

That is the setting for Evan Angler's new book Swipe.  This futuristic thriller depicts a world full of government influence and the lead the character Logan, along with his friends, find themselves in the middle of a conflict they never knew existed.  Fans of the popular series The Hunger Games will delight in Angler's original style and Logan races through this adventurous story.

Evan was a guest on my show and shared his thoughts on his first book, the series and what it's like writing for the Middle School audience.  To listen to the podcast click here or scroll down. Click here to learn more about Evan Angler.
