"I'm clutching my mangled heart and smiling madly. It's that kind of book. Such gorgeous heartbreak! Ty, Colin, and Lena owned me for 372 pages, and long after I finished reading. Smart, absorbing, and deeply human."--Laini Taylor, National Book Award finalist and New York Times bestselling author of Daughter of Smoke & Bone

"Metaltown is a raw, heart-racing tale of kids trying to survive in a society with nothing to lose. The most intense aspect is not its grittiness, but its familiarity: Simmons has created a story that is equal parts distant, war-torn fantasy and close-to-home, classist reality. Prepare to be destroyed."--Sara Raasch, New York Times bestselling author of Snow Like Ashes

"Kristen Simmons' Metaltown is a compelling, inspiring read. The industrial setting is reminiscent of turn of the century works like The Jungle, and the characters had me rooting for rebels, fights worth fighting, and girls with gumption. By the time it was over, I had my fist in the air."--Kendare Blake, author of Anna Dressed in Blood

"A page turner. The characters absolutely stole my heart."--Katie McGarry, author of Nowhere But Here

"In her latest, Simmons paints a bleak picture of the future. [Simmons] creates multifaceted characters that are hard to dismiss. It is an unrelentingly grim place, such details as the rat meat Ty and Colin are too poor to buy bringing it to life. In this gritty tale of intrigue, corruption, greed, and human rights, Simmons offers readers a savvy take on a post-apocalyptic society."--Kirkus Reviews

"The horrors each character faces--abuse, hunger, violence, a work accident with detrimental effects--are written about in a raw and realistic way. Rife with social commentary, this gritty, stand-alone dystopian novel will keep readers engaged."--School Library Journal
