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 d j 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 apocalyptic all at once Food and clean water are scarce people are hungry a lot of kids have been orphaned and the poor work long hours in unsafe conditions There s a war raging and one of the main employers is a huge weapons factoryThe story is told from the points of view of three characters Colin a boy who along with his female friend Ty work on the factory line Then there s Lena the daughter of the owner of the weapons factory The characters were a sticking point for me I never really warmed up to either Colin or Lena and thus wasn t all that enthralled by their slow burn rich girlpoor boy romance I really liked Ty but as soon as Colin went all google eyed over Lena she was kind of left on her own and let s just say that wasn t goodDoes this book have a love triangle Not technically but I didn t love the triangular dynamic of the supposedly nice guy who all but ditches his loyal female friend to chase around after another girl It wasn t a love triangle but it did feel to me that one character gets left out in the cold The book tried hard to make me like Lena with her mean father and abusive brother I did feel sorry for her but for some reason I just didn t connect to her and I usually secretly love poor little rich girl charactersIf you like gritty industrial settings you should definitely try at least a few chapters of Metaltown which will give you a good feel for the characters I did like the story world uite a bit even if I only liked one of the characters view spoiler and she ended up horribly maimed and then dead So that was a bit of a letdown to say the least hide spoiler

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

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
