Book Review: Scythe by Ella M.
Updated: Feb 11, 2020
Need a great book to read? Then grab Scythe, a dystopian fiction novel by Neal Shusterman. In the story, there is no such thing as “death” since humans can live forever due to nanite technology. In order to prevent overpopulation, society employs scythes to “glean” (or kill) people. Two teens Citra and Rowan must become scythes and take life, a job that at first sickens them. But unknown to them, a darker plot is going on in the heart of scythedom. This is a must-read book!
And if you love a good series, there are two other novels in the Arc of a Scythe trilogy--the third book just came out! Check out the media center or your local public library to get your hands on these amazing books!
