    EBOOK or KINDLE (Metaltown) By Kristen Simmons Way back when I read Kristen Simmons Article 5 I looked up my review which said in short loved the story world; didn't love the romance Well in the immortal words of Yogi Berra déjà vu all over again I thought Metaltown's story world was really well crafted I'm not sure if this book is supposed to be alt history or sort of dystopian futuristic but it takes place in a bleak gritty world that feels turn of the century industrial and post a

When I started Metaltown I was expecting a standard YA dystopia with all the tropes typical for the genre Nothing outstanding just your classic Novel Recommended by the Author of Much Better More Famous Book well in this case we talk about Sara Raasch who penned Snow Like Ashes so I am not so sure about the last partAnyway The only thing you need to know about Metaltown is that it is most definitely NOT a dystopia instead you get a book about social justice child labour workers rights and solidariTY And that there is nothing extraordinary about it except for Ty a girl as strong as the ideas that drove her I loved Ty all the for the fact that she reminded me of a real life Ty Anna Solidarity aka Anna Walentynowicz The very woman who created the peaceful social movement that brought down the Communist regime and was NEVER recognised for it screw you Lech Walesa Now this is probably something they do not teach you during your courses on feminism so buckle up and listen closely In 1950 Anna Walentynowicz enrolled in a welder course and was sent to Gdansk Shipyard She uickly became a frontrunner making 270% of the norm which is a huge thing in the communist economy Her photos were taken to the newspapers and she became a celebrity Anna the Welder 3However she soon gave up the communist party membership and joined the Women s League As an activist of this organization she began to lobby for the workers rights It was when her trouble with the Public Security Office startedOver time the hard work of a welder ruined her health However she resigned from the possibility of obtaining disability pension and re ualified for the crane In 1968 when she was demanding to explain the embezzlement of money from the welfare fund a first attempt was made to throw her out of work In her defense the entire unit crew stood upDuring a workers protest in December 1970 Anna Walentynowicz was preparing meals for strikers She was always there in the centre of all things Anna the Caring 3In 1978 she became one of the co founders of the Polish Free Trade Unions FTU She acted openly Her apartment was the FTU s main contact point This led to severe harassment from the Security Service 48 hours detentions constant revisions a threat of dismissal Anna has been under constant surveillance by over 100 officers and secret associates of the Security Service in 1981 they were even planning to kill her by poisoning herOn August 8 1980 after thirty years of exemplary performance of her duties five months before she hit the retirement age Anna Walentynowicz was fired from the shipyard under disciplinary charges The decision of the management triggered a strike on August 14 during which Solidarity was created Two days later dozens of workplaces had joined the protests 50 thousand people stood in defence of one woman The first postulate of protesting workers was the restoration of Anna Walentynowicz to work As you know they won a victory much bigger than they dreamed of Anna the Feminist 3So read the Metaltown for a 3 star entertainment but even better read up about Anna or watch this documentary about herAnd then do your best to continue her legacy Old Anna at the derelict Shipyard where she had beaten the Communist regime

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

Metaltown has been on my to read list for uite some time and I can definitely say that it s nothing short of incredible This dystopian tale brings readers into a polluted industrial nation where three unlikely young friends decide that it s high time they uestion the ruthless factory run society they live in Sort of as if Six of Crows and the 1995 film The Mangler were combined Metaltown brings together many themes and genres from steampunk to environmental to young adult and it does so in an explosion of imagination and intelligence
