Reviews

"If you enjoy worst-case scenarios involving technology and morality gone wrong, this novel gives you plenty to sink your teeth into. In addition to being alarming, it's also a fun read." -- New York Times Book Review

"Veronica Roth is getting better, which is good, because the future she sees is already partly here. Poster Girl returns the Chicago-based bestselling sci-fi author (Divergent) to our paranoid present, by relocating to a Pacific Northwest surveillance state with a heady Philip K. Dick-lite noir about how much privacy we are willing to give up." -- Chicago Tribune

"Divergent author Roth smartly envisions the repercussions of a government gone too far and the potential abuse of technology in the wrong hands." -- Washington Post

"The expert of dystopian worlds is back with yet another engrossing tale. . . Roth has done it again with her uncanny ability to create strong, inspiring characters and an eerie Big Brother theme." -- Shondaland

"Roth isn't interested in easy victories or happily-ever-afters . . . The novel manages to be an elegant social commentary without resorting to preachiness . . . A wonderfully complex and nuanced book." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Highly recommended for readers of dystopian fiction, lovers of Philip K. Dick's thought-police science fiction, and anyone who wants to see how far 'If you see something, say something' can be led astray." -- Library Journal (starred review)

"[A] page-turner." -- People

"Divergent readers will find this compelling page-turner well worth reading." -- Buzzfeed

"Every now and then, I escape into novels set in eerie, dystopian worlds - and this one wowed me....A haunting page-turner!" -- First for Women

"A taut futuristic thriller." -- Booklist

"An engaging and ultimately entertaining look at power and integrity, Poster Girl succeeds in balancing out expected dystopian tropes and characters with thoughtful and humane insights." -- Bookreporter.com

"Poster Girl is a captivating story full of twists and turns--and no easy answers. Veronica Roth's latest outing will draw you into its broken world, and make you think more deeply of our own. I couldn't put it down." -- Karin Slaughter, New York Times bestselling author of Girl, Forgotten

"Roth weaves a tale of redemption and regret that kept me riveted and guessing until the last page." -- Hugh Howey, New York Times bestselling author of Wool and Across the Sand

"Veronica Roth's Poster Girl is a carbonated noir, a thrilling dystopian page turner, and a novel that pushes at the ideas of justice and compliance. Poster Girl is a rare book that is deeply entertaining while making readers consider deep moral issues." -- Megan Giddings, author of Lakewood and The Women Could Fly

"Someone is always watching, private secrets breed public power, and polite behavior and careful thoughts will not be enough to save everyone from their complicity. This is a smart, propulsive thriller set in a cleverly constructed world, full of tough questions I won't soon forget." -- Matt Bell, author of Appleseed

"This is a story of deep complexity, full of love and loss and hard-won hope." -- Marissa Levien, author of The World Gives Way

"An intelligent, raw, emotional dystopian thriller that asks deep questions about human nature, society, and freedom. With searing prose, deft world building, and a layered, propulsive plot that will keep you turning the pages, the supremely talented Veronica Roth is at the top of her game in Poster Girl. Don't miss this!" -- Lisa Unger, New York Times bestselling author of Secluded Cabin Sleeps Six

"Poster Girl cements Veronica Roth's status as a superstar. It's not just her prose, lyrical and precise. Not just her characters, complex and enchanting. It's that she manages to keep her feet planted in the thunderous present while setting her narrative gaze on a looming Orwellian future. Not a word of this fine novel is dogmatic or reductive as Sonja Kantor, onetime true believer, peels back the pristine façade of her life's ideology to reveal the churning human chaos beneath. Her story is timeless in all the best ways, as contoured and mysterious as the poster girl herself." -- Gregg Hurwitz, #1 International bestselling author of the Orphan X series

"A near-future dystopic meditation on guilt, surveillance, and what comes after the revolution. . . Roth should be highly credited for taking the coldly functional state dystopia formula (made famous by novels such as 1984 and Philip K. Dick's work, among others) and turning it into something uniquely her own, as well as doing it in a way that feels both topical and timeless." -- Lightspeed Magazine
