even a town this brutal can t take away from her Until it doesLena s future depends on her family s factory a beast that demands a ruthless master and Lena is prepared to be as ruthless as it takes if

what s rightIn Lena Ty sees an heiress with a chip on her shoulder Colin sees something In a world of disease and war tragedy and betrayal allies and enemies all three of them must learn that challenging what they thought was true can change all the rulesAn enthralling story of friendship and rebellion Metaltown will have you believing in the power of hopeWhat I LikedI m a huge huge fan of Kristen Simmons books but I was slightly nervous before reading this one The synopsis sounds love triangle y doesn t it Plus I read a review written by a very disappointed friend who made some valid points that I had a feeling would bother me But when I read the book I found that I didn t have those same issues and that I really enjoyed the story Folks Metaltown is a heart pounding and truly heartbreaking story and it was definitely worth the readMetaltown follows the lives three teenagers two living in Metaltown one living in the River District Colin and his family didn t always live in Metaltown but they do now and they work in the factories with terrible conditions and awful pay You mess up you re fired Colin and Ty are best friends Ty is a street smart orphan earning her keep just like Colin and so many other underage children with no rights Meanwhile Lena Hampton daughter of Josef Hampton who owns all of the factors is living a rather cushy and rich life in the River District a life so different and so privileged But not all that glitters is gold even Lena s life is filled with cruelty The Hamptons lifestyle depends on the the factories producing weapons for the war But when certain events occur the workers of the Small Parts factory decide that they ve had enough A spark turns into a wildfire and the rebellion begins But will Lena side with the workers Will Colin put aside his personal duties for the benefit of everyone Will Ty accept her fateI m going to be honest typically I do not enjoy books that follow than two people In this book we get three third person POVs Colin s whose is first Ty s and Lena s This practically screams love triangle I ll get to that later but don t worry and messiness But Simmons did a really great job in writing the three POVs and telling the story using each voice She kept the story flowing at a great pace and every chapter which was a POV switch tied in well with the overall plot It was clear that each chapter was strategically written from that specific person s POV and made senseColin s POV is first and I like to think of him as the main protagonist even though all three are main protagonists Colin is protective extremely loyal and very selfless He works to support himself his parents and his brother He stands with the workers and for the workers even when the workers themselves wouldn t band together Colin is a natural leader with so much charisma and charm I adored Colin so muchTy is a hardcore spitfire of a girl She s so tough and so strong and she goes though so much in this book Out of all of the characters I think Ty had it the worst She suffers a terrible injury and then loses her job at the factory and then has nowhere to go She and Colin look out for each other and are family to each other I liked their friendship it seemed fairly platonic on both sides I like how protective Ty was of Colin and how protective she was of other workers too Ty isn t as obviously selfless as Colin is and she does have her survival of the fittest moments but Ty is always trying to help the factory workers AlwaysLena it took me a bit to warm up to her She s the stereotypical spoiled brat the princess of the kingdom What makes things worse is that she has no idea of the conditions of the factories the lack of pay lack of medical care etc But she wants to get involved in the family business which is how she ends up on a tour of the Small Parts factory Lena is so naive in the beginning of the book which is why it was hard to like her But I did end up liking her she could be any of us born in privilege sheltered all her life somewhat brainwashed But Lena is her own brand of strong she discovers many truths for herself about the factories the war her father the company She learns to fight back to stand up to choose I like Lena and I like the development of her character Her character development is the most obviously progressive not that the other two do not have great character development Gosh what an incredible and heartbreaking world Simmons has created It s very futuristic a world that we could be living in in fifty years Food had to genetically enhanced and modified but it wasn t tested because it had to be mass produced and many people got sick and died from eating the modified corn Children work in factories for little to no pay this is a current problem Brotherhoods are bribed to keep workers happy Water isn t clean A war is raging The world that Simmons has created is very authentic and real in a futuristic way It s a hard place to live with so many people starving begging dying Life working in the factory is miserableI feel like all of Simmons books are somewhat heartbreaking with cruel worlds and harsh conditions the survival type of books that could easily be real in the future Simmons writes these themes of pain suffering death and hope very well The story is heartbreaking but powerful There is uite a bit of pain and death in this book but there is also a lot of positive strong relationship Human resilience in the face of miserable timesI said I would talk about the romance I was so so worried about a love triangle But I uickly found that Colin and Ty are like family and they are very platonic friends I think Ty is very protective of Colin but not in a romantic way Colin and Lena are the romantic pair in this book It s weird and cute the poor working class boy from the other side of the tracks and the rich spoiled princess from her castle high on the hill I thought the romance was sweet and fit well It s a slow burn type of romance and there isn t much to the romance much like The Glass Arrow the romance is there but there aren t many physical interactions but I liked this The ending wraps up very well yet in a heartbreaking way I saw certain things coming but I still felt sad over the ending I would have liked to see how things shaped up say 20 years from the ending but there isn t an epilogue so we don t know how the Great Plan ended up working out But I can imagine it in my headOverall I liked this book I shouldn t have been so worried No love triangle interesting story wonderful characters And it s a standaloneWhat I Did Not LikeI would have loved to see physical and romantic interactions from Colin and Lena Lena is somewhat innocent since she s never really allowed to be around people other than her father brother and house staff I would have liked to see from Colin and Lena getting used to being physical with each other that sounds weird I know There is only one kiss in this book There isn t any hand holding or picking up or cuddling or anything Maybe it isn t Colin and Lena s style But I would have loved to see rather than accept as true Lena s trusting in Colin her giving him and permission to be with herI m not sure if that makes sense It would have made Lena s character development complete and of course there would be in the romance department between Lena and Colin which I am ALWAYS fine withWould I Recommend ItBe warned this isn t a cute story a happy story a story that you want to read if you re in the mood for something feel good BUT It s a great story about rebellions and friendships and trust and hope I liked the story a lot and would recommend it Rating4 stars I think my favorite Simmons book remains The Glass Arrow but I liked this one tooEDIT FEBRUARY 9TH Synopsis is updated Eee DEDIT May 2nd

Summary ç Metaltown 102 Something even a town this brutal can’t take away from her Until it doesLena’s future depends on her family’s factory a beast that demands a ruthless master and Lena is prepared to be as ruthless as it takes if it means finally proving herself to her father But when a chance encounter with Colin a dreamer despite his circumstances exposes Lena to the conseuences of her actions s. Dear Kristen Simmonsyou get me okay I loved everything about this book and that s even though you made me cryFull ReviewIf I haven t told you this yet you are going to want to add Metaltown by Kristen Simmons to your to be read listshelf I am fairly certain I hit every single emotion while reading Metaltown and I can t even tell you everything There are so many things that I loved about this book and I am fairly certain that I won t be able to give it the justice it deserves in my review I m a rambler when I really enjoy a book Nevertheless I will do my best and definitely try not to spoil anything At its heart this story is about standing up for your beliefs family and friendship And when I say familythat doesn t always mean the family you are born to it can also be the people you choose as your own The characters at the heart of this story are Ty Colin and Lena They all have different backgrounds but ultimately end up together fighting for a better life for all Metaltown is a place where factories make all the rules and they are really only interested in making a profit Regardless of the conditions most people fight for a place on the factory lines because if you don t work you end up on the streets If you are living on the streets you could end up dead so working no matter what your age is the only ways people can survive If someone can provide value they are used however the factory foreman sees fit The Brotherhood is there to support the workers rights and is led by Jed Schultz but it is easy to see that Schultz is really only looking out for himself Ty really is my favorite character in this book I don t know what it was about her but from the first page of introduction to her I loved her She is not perfectnot even close and she did some things I didn t agree with and ultimately put her in a bad position but I could understand where she was coming from and why she did what she did Ty has been on her own for uite a while and when she vouched for Colin they became linked like family Even though Ty has Colin she is still very independent and tries to be as tough as she has to be to survive Underneath all the clothes and her toughness though she really is just a young girl who has been dealt a bad handColin doesn t have things easy either but he hasn t always lived in Metaltown and he has a family For me Colin is the optimist He believes there has to be something better and the factory workers can influence change He is always looking for the good in people and a way to make things better Simply put he wants something than what Metaltown has to offer Colin values loyalty and cares about his family and if there is one thing he wants most it is to protect the people he loves I love this about Colin and I can t fault him for his decisionseven if I didn t like them all the timeLena is a Hamptonas in Hampton Industries which owns the factory that Ty and Colin work in She has a very different life from Ty and Colin but things are easier Yes her family is rich but she is abused by her brother and not allowed to do anything her father doesn t approve of Her argument to be involved in the factories is what puts her into the mix with Ty and Colin and it is also the catalyst to the rest of the story Lena is smart and as she begins to dig into how her father and brother are running the factory she realizes just how bad things are for the workers When something horrible happens to Ty at the factory her ability to work is put at risk and when Lena is the one to kick her off the line Ty is even angrier than usual The factory and the Hamptons have become the face of all of her problems and this is important because all three of these characters become key players in the press for workers rights and Ty has issues including Lena in everything Not only is she a Hampton and he cause of most of her problems in her mind but she is also taking Colin away from her When the group decides not to pledge to the Brotherhood and instead start the Small Parts Charter Lena pledges right alongside everyone elseIn their push to make changes the group decides to show up to the factory and not go in and this is where things start to get out of control I am not going to say all the things that happen here but this is the turning point in the story where the press back becomes real and there are real conseuences to the decisions the group makes It is also the catalyst to the rest of the storywhich I can t say anything about really because I don t want to ruin it What I will say is this Kristen Simmons can tell a great story Not only is the world well developed but the characters are all so different I really just wanted to hug each and every one of them even though Ty probably wouldn t have let me and the second I finished the book I couldn t stop thinking about the book which to me that is a sign of a great story I m pretty sure I hit on every emotion while reading this book and I can t even tell you how much I both love and hate Kristen Simmons for making me feel ALL the things OkI don t really hate her for it but there s this part when you read it you will see what I mean Well there isn t much I can tell you about this book because in all honesty you should read this to experience the whole thing Like I said I am sure my review doesn t do this book any justice and if you take anything from this at all just know that you need to read this book It should be on your TBR if it isn t already and it should be read as soon as you can possibly get it into your hands After reading all of Kristen Simmons books I can tell you I am never disappointed and her books are immediately put onto my wishlist when I hear she has a new one coming out If you are looking for a story that will pull you in from the very first page and holds onto you long after the book is finished this is the book for you Thank you to the publisher for the review copy

Summary ç Metaltown 102 He’ll risk everything to do what’s rightIn Lena Ty sees an heiress with a chip on her shoulder Colin sees something In a world of disease and war tragedy and betrayal allies and enemies all three of them must learn that challenging what they thought was true can change all the rulesAn enthralling story of friendship and rebellion Metaltown will have you believing in the power of ho. I had been so excited to read this book for ages As I adore Kristen And I thought this one seemed so amazing Then I was lucky enough to win an ARC of it and now I have finally gotten to read it But oh I have so many thoughts about it And most of them are not good At all Sobs I m just angry I m so so angryI m giving this book two stars I had hoped to rate it higher But it was impossible I had so many issues Sigh But I also feel like this book could have been amazing The writing is gorgeous The plot was exciting And Ty was perfection But Colin and Lena ruined this book Ugh And I m simply very bitter about itI m going to have a lot to say about this book And I m not going to be very positive about it I m also going to be sharing a whole bunch of spoilers so this is my warning to you about that I cannot write this review of mine without mentioning all the parts that bothered me Because those parts are still bothering me I need to get them out of my mind I need to forget about this book And I need to do it now Sigh Though I will be getting the hardcover And I will be keeping my precious ARC of this book Because it is gorgeous And I do love this author But yeah This book was not a favorite of mine And I would not re read it Not ever So glad it is a standalone Which I just about never thinks about any books Sigh But yeah This one was just bad UghHonestly though I could have loved this book a whole bunch Because the writing is gorgeous And I liked the plot a whole bunch This world was amazingly done I loved reading about metaltown and how people were doing there and all those poor people and the war and ahh I thought those parts of the book were amazing And I loved Ty so goddamn much But I felt like she wasn t treated right This should have been her book But it wasn t Three point of views One chapter each Yet Ty got the smallest parts of itFinal warning I m going to write a very spoilery review I will share details about the ending I will share details about the romance So yeah If you do not wish to know don t read Shrugs But at the same time I wish I had known before reading this book Sigh Because I went into it expecting to love it a whole bunch And so I was disappointed But even so I couldn t have loved this I just couldn t And so I have so many things I wish to share about it Ack If I can find the words I shall try my best It won t be positiveThis book is told from three different point of views There is Colin and Ty and Lena I thought I liked Colin at first He and Ty have been friends for four years now they are always together He is seventeen she is fifteen He seemed okay But hahaha Then Colin sees Lena And he falls in love with this rich girl right away He starts pushing Ty away He keeps choosing Lena instead of her He is being such an asshole towards Ty He forgot about her all the damn time Friends don t do that They do not Ugh He was badAnd sigh Lena I wish I could say I loved her But I did not I found her chapters to be the most boring She was such an boring girl Spoiled rich kid And not even a nice girl The way she was thinking about Ty when she had only seen her a few times it was not okay Hmph I mean sure Lena has a mean father and an abusive brother Whatever I sort of felt sorry for her at times but not much Because I did not care for this girl She came between Colin and Ty ruined their friendship Hmph Did not like one bitAnd then there is Ty Ah She was my most favorite part of this book I loved her so much I thought she was the main character But the moment Lena enters Ty gets pushed in a corner We don t get to read much about her at all And I am so pissed off Because Ty was the most amazing girl Kind and sweet and loving She had just started having a crush on Colin And I shipped them so hard But he never saw that He kept calling her his best man Wtf That bothered me so much Ty was the sweetest girl GrrrWe get to know a bunch about Ty And I loved that But One night she gets attacked Almost raped We learn that she has been raped before Sort of It is never mentioned again or mentioned for real and that was annoying She sees Colin the same day she s all beaten up He is angry Thinking about going after the guys But then Lena walks in the door And then he forgets all about Ty and that she was attacked Goddamn it This boy was the worst boy I have read about in a long time I m so upset about it AssholeAnd then Ty gets hurt for real A work accident kind of thing Acid marks all over her face One of her eyes are blind She feels so ugly And never once does Colin tell her it s okay Never once does he tell her she looks good Not Once I am so angry He was a shitty friend Always Ty deserved better She was the best friend And hurting All the time He didn t care for her one bit I m so angry about it Which is why I did not like this book Sigh Ty wasn t written fairly She should have been the star of the book SighI guess that Colin also had issues With his mom being sick and whatnot But I didn t care all that much after he started treating Ty that way He was just an asshole There is just so much I want to say about this book Sigh I haven t mentioned the plot yet Colin and Ty live in Metaltown A poor city where they have to work at a weapons factory to live Yet they work all day no breaks almost no money and ahh They had such awful lives All the people did And I loved reading about it And the other charactersI sort of knew that this book would be based a bit on Les Miserables But I did not know that the story of the three main characters would be exactly the same Damn It was annoying I mean I loved Les Mis the movie But I would never want to read about a love triangle like that Never In a way this wasn t a normal love triangle but at the same time it still was And I hated it I hated it oh so much I just feel so disappointed I had such high hopes for this book I thought the romance would be amazing SighBut no The romance was not good at all Colin and Lena were both awful people Ty was the best And Ty got no romance at all Colin and Lena did not fit together at all I don t get why they fell in love with each other right away Ugh I just I loved Ty so much And she was treated so badly all the time At the end of the book there is a big fight Ty goes looking for Lena because of Colin And Ty ends up getting killed And being in pain all alone for a long time before dying I m so goddamn angry about it all UuughTy deserved so much better And I just I cannot deal with it This book sucked Okay fine I did love parts of it I loved Ty But I m so angry That ending was shitty Oh and there is a family secret that is about Ty and her parents Hahaha I guess that would have been very exciting If she had not died Grrrr So angry Ty deserved I just I now wish to forget about reading this Which makes me so sad I really did wish to love this one But I couldn t Not after how Ty was treated Not after she died too Ugh So sadOkay I have now written way too much about this book Yet I still feel like I could write so much Ahh But I will not I just I did not love this book I loved parts of it yes but not nearly enough I do want others to read it though I need to know if I am the only one who feels this way Sigh Metaltown is all kinds of gorgeous I just wish the inside were just as awesome Also do let me know if you read my whole review with all the spoilers I just couldn t stop writing about this Sigh I wish it had been different This review was first posted on my blog Carina s Books here
