Unfallen - Lilith Saintcrow A YA short set in Murica, where Christian zealots have taken over the country (think close to the world in Atwood's Handmaid's Tale). The MC is at Holy Camp, where they try to reform troublemakers. And her best friend has just told her he's the Antichrist. I liked this one. It's dark, but at the same time hopeful, in a "the world's ending but lets go see what we can do in the meantime" kind of way. If you are the kind of person who would be very unhappy in a story where the Antichrist seems the lesser of two evils, you probably won't like this. However, I like it when authors mess with preconceived notions. And I wouldn't want to live in Murica either.This is very short, so if you normally don't like short stories, or you want a book that lasts for days, you won't be happy here.
