Book Review: The First Principle

The First Principle
By Marissa Shrock

If inalienable rights begin with life itself, will Vivica have the courage to defend them, no matter what it takes? In the not too distant future the United Regions of North America has formed. Governors hold territories instead of states and while Washington DC is gone the government has more control than ever before. For sixteen year old Vivca Wilkins the daughter of a governor, this is life as usual. High school seems pretty much the same - until one day, that controlling power steps right through the door during study hall. 

When Vivica speaks out to defend a pregnant student against the harsh treatment of Population Management officer Martina Ward, she has no idea she's sowing the seeds of a revolution in her own life. But it isn't long before she discovers her own illegal pregnancy. Now she has to decide whether to get the mandatory termination or to follower her heart try to keep the baby and possibly ruin her mother's chances at becoming president. 

Marisa Shrock is a middle school language arts teacher and works with her audience every day. She's a graduate of Jerry B. Jenkins Christian Writers Guild courses, and is a member of the ACFW. Her articles for teens have been published in Evangel and Encounter. This is her first book.

I'm personally more of a historical book fan I thought reading a futuristic book would be a fun change. The whole United Regions of North America is pretty cool. However, the whole sixteen year old girl getting pregnant isn't my thing and to me she shouldn't be in any position to look towards. If you like The Robertson Family Christmas then you might like this teen, or young adult book.
