The Last Lie (The List)
After the great Melting, John Noa created the city of Ark. One of the rules in Ark is that people can only use 500 words because John believed that language was the downfall of the world. Now John is dead, and his wife Amelia is the new leader. She is even more strict; she wants less language. Letta is a wordsmith who has been secretly teaching words to students. She is part of a group that is trying to save Ark from the strict laws. When babies start to go missing, Letta and her group must try to stop the Ark government and save the babies from a life without any words.
This book is the second in the series; therefore, some of the story was a little confusing until the author explained what had happened to the world and why Ark was created. Although she doesn’t think she is strong enough to be a true leader, Letta is a strong character. The way that Letta and her friends work together really shows that anything can be possible as long as you stick together, even if you don’t always agree with one another.
