How We Rise Blog Tour + Book Shoutout!

Happy day, folksies! Today I’ve got another blog tour post (lots of spring releases this year!) in celebration of Brooke Riley‘s debut novel, How We Rise. This has been a long time coming, and I’m so happy that Brooke has finally put this out into the world ❤ So today I’m spotlighting How We Rise!

About the Book

First, would you look at this cover

When the truth gets you killed… will you still Rise?

Raegan MacArthur is content with her simple life. But lately, her life hasn’t been all that simple. She can’t drown out the screams in the night coming from the military base up the road. And she can’t ignore the truth behind them.

Peter Daniels thought moving back to Texas with his mom for senior year was a good thing. A chance to reconnect with old friends and finally feel at home again. But his life now can never be the same as it was six years ago.

Signs of government overreach are everywhere, and an unknown- yet familiar- enemy lurks in the shadows, watching their every move. The government is clamping down tighter and tighter on anyone who resists their ways. Raegan and Peter have to make the hardest decision they’ve ever faced: will they go quietly to save their lives… or will they rise? 


And here’s the link to the paperback version!

NEWS FLASH: This book is my current read, and I’m really enjoying it! I can safely say that I love the dystopian themes and elements in the story… but that’s all I can say. You guys need to read it for yourself.

About the Author

Brooke Riley has been seriously writing novels since she was fifteen, the thrill of creating new worlds and broken humans with a greater purpose is something that inspired her to begin writing in the first place. Before then, she hated writing but loved books and literature. She’s always been drawn to new worlds and fascinating books. Not limiting herself to one genre, you will find she writes in dystopian one day, contemporary another day, and even historical the day after that.

When she’s not writing, Brooke is probably thinking of some random idea for a new novel that’s come to her in the most inconvenient of times, and how soon she can make a Pinterest board and Spotify playlist for it.
