Ultraviolet by Joseph Robert Lewis

[Ultraviolet] by [Joseph Robert Lewis] was a fun fast paced read. The main character Carmen is a very independent young woman who just wants to make a better life for her and her parents. She has played by the rules but apparently the rules change to benefit the rich corporations.

She becomes a heroine to many people when she decides to fight back but also puts those she cares about in danger. With the help of another victim of the corporate greed she works to make a change for those she cares about.

The questions that Carmen struggles with about where is the line between vigilante and terrorist adds a very humanistic twist to this story. I also love to see strong women protagonists. For too long girls were always the weak and helpless in need of rescue. I am glad to see that changing.
