Book Review: Unraveling Eleven by, Jerri Chisholm

I am thrilled to be a part of the official Chapter by Chapters blog tour for Unraveling Eleven by Jerri Chisholm. This is the second book in the Eleven Trilogy that started last year with Escaping Eleven – which I loved!


Unraveling Eleven (Eleven Trilogy #2) by Jerri Chisholm
Publication Date: November 16, 2021
Publisher: Entangled Teen

In Compound Eleven, freedom from tyranny is impossible.

My name is Eve Hamilton, and I’ve managed the impossible.

I am free.

Until just like that, it is wrenched from my grasp. And this time, the corridors of the dark underground city are even more dangerous than ever before. But my brief taste of freedom has left me with something useful, something powerful, something that terrifies the leaders of Compound Eleven.

And now I have a monster inside.

One I’ll need to learn to control, and fast, or I’ll lose everything and everyone I hold dear. Starting with Wren Edelman. The one boy who has taught me that anything is possible if we stick together.

But will that matter if I become the very thing he fears the most?


Jerri Chisholm is a YA author, a distance runner, and a chocolate addict. Her childhood was spent largely in solitude with only her imagination and a pet parrot for company. Following that she completed a master’s degree in public policy and then became a lawyer, but ultimately decided to leave the profession to focus exclusively on the more imaginative and avian-friendly pursuit of writing. She lives with her husband and three children, but, alas, no parrot.

WARNING:
Spoilers ahead! I’m so sorry but what I wanted to say is a bit of a spoiler so if you haven’t read Escaping Eleven yet, proceed with caution. You have been warned.

The first thing you need to know about Unravelling Eleven is that this is most definitely a sequel. If you have not read Escaping Eleven, you need to go and do that now before you go any further. This second book in the series picks up right where we left off and just gets going! You won’t want to start in the middle of the story. Start at the beginning.

That being said…

I am becoming more and more obsessed with Cli-Fi and dystopian futures that are happening because of climate change. And so a series about humans who have been forced underground because the surface of the earth is now uninhabitable is right up my alley.

During the COVID-19 global pandemic, when we saw people staying home more, the world began to heal itself. We saw pictures of nature coming back – clear water, plants growing, animals exploring. That’s what has happened to the earth in Unravelling Eleven. The air is breathable again!

At the start of the book, Eve and Wren now have a decision to make. Do they stay and try to figure out how to live above ground or do they head back and tell everyone what they have discovered? And if they go back, how much trouble will they be in. From this decision comes an exciting continuation of the Eleven series that you don’t want to miss.

And that ending. UGH! Really?? According to Goodreads, this series is a trilogy, although there is no information on Book 3. Way to leave me on a cliffhanger Jerri Chisholm. I certainly hope you are sitting at home writing… Hint hint.

I give this book 5 Sips!
