Join us for an online book discussion of Dread Nation by Justina Ireland. Available online on Hoopla with your Northbrook Library Card. Recommended for grades 9 and up.
Jane McKeene was born two days before the dead began to walk the battlefields of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania-derailing the War Between the States and changing the nation forever. In this new America, safety for all depends on the work of a few, and laws like the Native and Negro Education Act require certain children attend combat schools to learn to put down the dead. Jane is studying to become an Attendant, trained in both weaponry and etiquette to protect the well-to-do. When families go missing in Baltimore County, Jane finds herself in the middle of a conspiracy that has her fighting for her life against powerful enemies.
