Winter’s End by Jean Claude Mourlevat captured me, sending me to a world of dystopian boarding schools and political intrigue. This is a French YA novel offered in an English translation for us to enjoy and enjoy I did.
It follows four teens–Milena, Bartolomeo, Helen, and Milos–as they traverse icy mountains pursued by dog-men. The government murdered their parents fifteen years earlier and now it seems focused to do the same to them.
If you are a fan of the Hunger Games and Maze Runner, this would be a welcome addition to your collection.
