Blog Tour: A Nothing Named Silas

A Nothing Named Silas
By Steve Westover

"In the not-so-distant future, workers are forcibly drafted into their fields, and the Labor party chooses Silas. Because he's new, strong, and trained for Command, everyone wants to use him for their own purposes. But when a strange girl shows him that he can choose his own destiny, Silas must make his first real decision---which side he will fight for?"

Not all decisions in life are black and white. It's difficult to decide who to follow/lead/join when you're given bits of propaganda. In a dystopian world, Silas must decide who is on the right side, or if there is a "right" side. Or, if he can choose something else entirely. 

The book does get into some pretty deep thoughts. The content is more mature but I would call it a clean read. It's definitely meant for an older reader, but can work as a great conversation starter with a mature teen. If you'd like to purchase a copy click here.
