Divided by Suzanne Lowe is the third book in the Seventeen series and concerns a town where the inhabitants are all children. The adults had all succumbed to a virus that only appeared to attack older people. As there were only children in town, they had to run it. To the main protagonist Lexi, the stranger who arrived looked like a tall man but turned out to be a woman called Rebekka. The stranger caused a stir among the children as they had not seen an adult for many years. Lexi wondered how Rebekka could have survived the virus. Lexi was apprehensive about whether accepting Rebekka into their town was such a good idea, but the other children were excited about having an adult around. As soon as Rebekka settled in, things start changing, but not in a good way.
Divided by Suzanne Lowe is a suspenseful novel with a vivid account of the action, especially the relationship between Lexi and Rebekka, which was well-written. The turn of events and twists were eerie and unexpected. I sat on tenterhooks toward the end of the spell-bounding story. The dialogue was catchy, especially that featuring Rebekka. Her character provides a fantastic antagonist and her interaction with the children was wickedly funny. She was like an older sister taking full advantage of the immaturity of her younger siblings and their need to please or be cool. The build-up of the plot to the climax was proof of Lowe’s experience in writing for this age group. It will appeal to young adults, the intended readers, but also to older persons.
