Blurb:
After a financial collapse devastates the United States, the new government imposes a tax on the nation’s most valuable resource—the children.
Surrendered at age ten—after her parents could no longer afford her exorbitant fees—Vee Delancourt has spent six hard years at the Mills, alongside her twin, Oliver. With just a year to freedom, they do what they can to stay off the Master’s radar. But when Vee discovers unspeakable things happening to the younger girls in service, she has no choice but to take a stand—a decision that lands her on the run and outside the fence for the first time since the System robbed her of her liberty.
Vee knows the Master will stop at nothing to prove he holds ultimate authority over the Surrendered. But when he makes a threat that goes beyond what even she considers possible, she accepts the aid of an unlikely group of allies. Problem is, with opposing factions gunning for the one thing that might save them all, Vee must find a way to turn oppression and desperation into hope and determination—or risk failing all the children and the brother she left behind.

The Surrendered is a great story of Vee, a young woman put into servitude with her twin brother by their parents who are unable to make the taxation requirements of the government.  However Vee is not cut from the cloth that an obedient servant should be made from.  Her high spirit and sense of social justice pits her against those in authority.  Generally, this does not work out well for Vee, but that doesn't stop her.

The Surrendered is a young-adult dystopian novel, in the best sense of this genre.  I enjoyed the fresh concepts, the characters were very well developed, and the action was well choreographed.  This was a difficult book to put down at night.  I am hopeful that there will be a follow-up novel so I can see the adventures of Vee and those she loves.

With over 20 years’ experience in the legal and medical fields, Case Maynard decided to trade in her briefs and reports to write the stories that have been floating around in her head since childhood. She lives with her two teenagers and husband in South Georgia, while maintaining a long-distance liaison with her oldest daughter and partner in crime in Alaska. When not writing, she enjoys reading as often as possible, binge watching anything good on Netflix, and all things NCAA football (Go Noles!). You can learn more about Case and her stories on her website.
