VOX / Christina Dalcher

If you absolutely cannot wait for the next season of The Handmaid’s Tale or love dystopian fiction, Vox by Christina Dalcher is the book for you. Vox begins in an America where women are only allowed to speak 100 words per day, counted down by word counters strapped to their wrists. Women can no longer hold jobs, and girls are no longer taught to read or write. Before being permanently sent home to keep house and take care of her husband and children, Dr. Jean McClellan was a well-respected scientist in the field of neurolinguistics.  A year after the word counters go on, Jean is surprised to be contacted by the President to use her knowledge to cure his brother. Can Jean use this opportunity to reclaim her voice?     Shayna 12/7/2018
