What a creepy, creepy little read I just finished. The first book in author Victoria Randall’s Children in Hiding series, Get on Board Little Children, gives readers a glimpse into a dystopian future, one in which high tech surveillance keeps tabs on every citizen, and where unlicensed pregnancies can lead to a felony charge. When our protagonist, Sophie, becomes pregnant illegally, the Bureau of Population Management is likely to take her child to be raised in the education and labor camps designed for such children. She needs to decide what she’s going to do; accept the government’s plan or go on the run, and become a fugitive from the law with an infant child. A new version of the Underground Railroad has been created for just such situations as Sophie’s, and she can turn to them for help, but to what end?
I loved this book. Loved. It. How’s that for a review? Author Victoria Randall has done a fantastic job in creating a futuristic society that, in a very eerie way, doesn’t seem all that futuristic or all that impossible. Her ability to create characters, especially as embodied by Sophie, that her readers will connect with, relate to and care about is truly second to none. Her pacing and scene-setting is impeccable. Get on Board Little Children was a book that grabbed me from the very first page and simply wouldn’t let go. I could not put it down until I had read it from start to finish. Any reader who enjoys action, adventure, thrillers, stories with a dystopian setting, or simply a great read will love Get on Board Little Children. I highly recommend this book, and will absolutely be looking for more from the highly talented Victoria Randall in the very near future!
