Divided We Fall

Trent Reedy

Reedy’s first book for teens envisions a near-future America on the verge of disaster. Seventeen-year-old Pfc. Daniel Wright is a football-playing high school senior who is in the Idaho National Guard. When Danny's unit is called to police a protest in Boise, he is hit by a rock and accidentally discharges his weapon, causing other Guardsmen to open fire. When the smoke finally clears, twelve people are dead and the crisis leads to a full-blown conflict between Idaho and the Feds. Danny is in shock that he may be responsible for a second civil war that will bring down the United States.
