India's life has been hard since her father left to discover Ironheart, a fairy tale that's said to have all the secrets of the old world. Ironheart would bring happiness and safety to the people again. But it's been years since he's vanished.My Thoughts: I enjoyed this dystopian novel. I haven't read too many for middle grade readers. I really liked India. She was fierce, determined, and nothing stopped her. I like how she was forced to change plans often. I loved the secondary cast of characters including the android. I liked her journey. I loved the action and the danger around every corner.
When a tech hunger and her android appear in her village asking for help, India doesn't hesitate. It's either that or be forced into marriage. She's happy to escape home.
And she has a hidden map that might lead her the way. But nothing goes as planned and India's forced to improvise. Will she find the city and will it give her answers?
