The Glass Arrow by Kristen SimmonsPublisher: Tor TeenPublication Date: February 10, 2015
The Handmaid’s Tale meets Blood Red Road in Glass Arrow, the story of Aya, who lives with a small group of women on the run from the men who hunt them, men who want to auction off breeding rights to the highest bidder.
In a world where females are scarce and are hunted, then bought and sold at market for their breeding rights, 15-year old Aya has learned how to hide. With a ragtag bunch of other women and girls, she has successfully avoided capture and eked out a nomadic but free existence in the mountains. But when Aya’s luck runs out and she’s caught by a group of businessmen on a hunting expedition, fighting to survive takes on a whole new meaning.

A moment later, the Driver boy appears, and this time I can see that he's wearing a plain white T-shirty and dirty, tie-on linen pants, and he's barefoot.
An ice-cold fist closes around my heart. He's walking straight towards me.
