Icons by Margaret Stohl*****

Icons is about a group of teens who live in a post-apocalyptic world. Dol is the person that brings them all together. She and her friends Ro, Tima, and Lucas must fight the lords and destroy the icons. Dol and Ro are Grassfolk; they live in the wilderness surrounded by nature. They meet up with Lucas and Tima when they get sent to a military compound. They hatch a plan to escape and to destroy the icons, once and for all.

This book was sort of scary and very creepy--everyone seemed to want to kill everyone else. This book made me think what if this happened to our society today? Would it be chaos? Would it be war? Could we stop it? I think about all of those questions and realize that it's the little things in life we take for granted, like electricity.
