Summary
New York Times bestseller * Six starred reviews At once provocative, terrifying, and darkly subversive, Dread Nation is Justina Ireland's stunning vision of an America both foreign and familiarђ́ؤa country on the brink, at the explosive crossroads where race, humanity, and survival meet. Jane McKeene was born two days before the dead began to walk the battlefields of Gettysburg, Pennsylvaniaђ́ؤderailing the War Between the States and changing the nation forever. In this new America, safety for all depends on the work of a few, and℗¡laws like℗¡the Native and Negro Education Act require℗¡certain children attend combat schools to learn to put down the dead. But there are also opportunitiesђ́ؤand Jane is studying to become an Attendant, trained in both weaponry and etiquette to protect the well-to-do.℗¡It's a chance for a better life for Negro girls like Jane.℗¡After all, not even℗¡being the daughter of a wealthy white Southern woman℗¡could save her from societyђ́ةs expectations. But that́ђةs not a life Jane wants.℗¡Almost finished with her education at Miss Preston's School of Combat in Baltimore, Jane is set on returning to her Kentucky home and doesnђ́ةt pay much mind to the politics of the eastern cities, with their talk of returning America to the glory of its days before the dead rose. But when families around Baltimore County begin to go missing, Jane is caught in the middle of a conspiracy, one that finds her in a desperate fight for her life against some powerful enemies.℗¡ And the restless dead, it would seem, are the least of her problems
