    • 5 Words: Terrifying, real, special, friendship, mind-blowing.Right from the start, I knew that The One Safe Place wasn't your average speculative young adult story. Firstly, it can probably be read by anyone aged eight or up. And perhaps younger readers would realise that childhood is something to cherish.A common theme in most media today is global warming and the possible impact that this could have. The One Safe Place explores it wonderfully. This could happen. The world that you explore as y [...]

    • Interesting. I kind of forgot this kind of dystopian novel can exist, where it's not about love triangles and taking down the government.I figured out most of what was going on pretty quickly, but I don't think the target audience would.

    • The One Safe Place is the kind of heartfelt book that I come across only once in a while. It doesn't go overboard in its message and delivers only the simplest of them- indeed one so ordinary, it's a way of living: when life tries to knock you down, stumble back on your friends. After his grandfather dies of old age and leaves him alone in their isolated paradise of a valley, a hidden island in the decrepit world outside that is like a fairytale to him, relegated in stories of both marvel and pe [...]

    • With all the middle grade and YA post apocalyptic/dystopian novels being trilogies lately, it was refreshing to read a great one that that had it all in one book. Not that I don't love a post apocalyptic/dystopian trilogy, because I do absolutely love The Hunger Games, The Darkest Minds, Monument 14, and The Rule of Three trilogies. But they take a lot of work. Usually by the time the second one comes out I've forgotten so much from the first one that I have to go back and reread it before I can [...]

    • This review can also be found at Carole's Random LifeI received an advance reader edition of this book from Algonquin Books and Net Galley for the purpose of providing an honest review.4 StarsI enjoyed this book and found the story intriguing. This book has a middle grade audience but I found it quite appealing even as an adult. The story pulls you in right away and keeps you interested until the very end. This book is set in a future world that is quite hot. Devin has lived on the farm with his [...]

    • 2.5 stars. This book was lacking in a variety of different things.The characters were under-developed, were stereotypical, and had no personality.Devin, the main character, has synesthesia, which means his senses overlap. However, the reader had absolutely no idea- except for a couple random hints dropped here and there- that he has synthesia, until one of the characters actually TOLD us. I feel that the story would have been way more entertaining if the author has included descriptions of what [...]

    • I really liked this book. It was a quick and easy read and it was a different take on a dystopian future. In this world the earth has gotten hotter and the divide between rich and poor has gotten bigger. The main character, Devin, lives with his grandfather on a farm. When his grandfather dies, Devin tries to run the farm alone but he can’t so he sets off for the city where he finds many children living on the street. He becomes friends with a girl named Kit. The city is a rough place and the [...]

    • The One Safe Place by Tania Unsworth4.5 starsDevin has always lived on a farm and when his grandfather dies he knows it’s his time to go into the city. What Devin finds in the city is a world of poverty. The rich are the ones living in houses, drinking water, and eating. The homeless are children and people who can’t afford to live nicely. Devin meets a girl on the streets and they become fast friends. Rumors of a home where homeless children go to be adopted are whispered amongst the homele [...]

    • A boy, scared and alone, is left at his farm when his grandpa dies. Realizing that being just one person, he came to the conclusion that he couldn't manage his farm. So he left for the nearest city. Once there, he befriended a girl around the same age and had the name of Kit. Then, being vulnerable to lies, they get tricked into going to a place where they are treated fairly until they are summoned to a tower. Inside the tower, they are subject to horrible, awful nightmares. Once snapped out, th [...]

    • 3.5 This was a pretty good middle grade sci-fi read, but with the glory days of dystopian fiction behind us, these kinds of stories just don't appeal to me like they used to. The One Safe Place has an original premise and some pretty good (though somewhat under-developed) characters. The "reveal" was a pretty predictable as an adult, but I can see kids being a little more surprised and horrified.

    • I received this book in a first reads give away and i enjoyed it immensely, i found it well written different to anything i had read before and i finished it in one sitting, I think The one safe place would appeal to both younger and older readers and i am planning to read it with my two boys of nine and ten as i think they would greatly enjoy it a thumbs up from me a good read.

    • The One Safe Place was an incredible dystopian novel that really does deserve more popularity than it has.The plot: Devin is a happy-go-lucky farmer's grandson who lives in a little pocket of paradise in a broken world. The farm has its difficulties, sure, but it's nothing compared to what the world outside goes through. Intense heat batters major cities until incredibly strong storms wash the dust away, along with people, homes, and liveliehoods. Devin lives in his bubble until one day the unth [...]

    • This is not for me. It's middle grade, but it's definitely lower middle grade. I thought that the ages of the characters (which I never really figured out or somehow missed), were upper middle grade, but the voices of the characters were incredibly young, more like 8 or 9 years old, which is fine but not what I was expecting based on the description and cover. Also, the characters actions and voices often seemed at odds for me, which I struggled with throughout. It's like the two never meshed in [...]

    • This book was fine - I was interested enough in the plot to see it through to the end. But there were some pretty major flaws for me. I don’t understand why Devon didn’t just recruit a merry band of kids and return to the farm from the city, particularly after the gym experience. Kids don’t have enough food, the farm has food. I also didn’t buy that he had time to trust and care about Kit as quickly as the book had him doing so. Some sort of motivation - that she looked like his long dea [...]

    • The book was a YA read. But, I enjoyed reading it. Not usually what I would read, kept pace and leaving you with a bit of what happens next ending. Kind of a cliff hanger. Considering the author writes another book after this one going in a bit of different direction of fantasy. Not to trust adults at all. Only thing I didn't like about it. They both are fantasy but cataloged YA. Maybe its just me.

    • I really like how this shows kids bonding together. It's not about how they save the world, and there are no romances. They are just saving each other. The environment isn't doing well. The separation between rich and poor is big. Experiments are being done to some of the children. I liked this book. I think younger readers will love it.

    • I think it was so good and chilling at the end it made me want to jump out of my seat because of all the great action!!!

    • I received a copy of this book through the FirstReads program. Not quite five stars, but still one of the best books I have read in a long time. The One Safe Place is exactly what the world of YA Dystopian Fiction needs right now. It's fast paced without leaving out important details, the characters are developed and there isn't too many of them, and it's not set in the USA. It's very different, which I think was the reason I liked it so much.It's the future and the world has been devastated by [...]

    • I was impressed with this Middle Grade (MG) style audio book. The One Safe Place gives a modern and possibly creepier feel to the old Hansel and Gretel story… and as I write this I think this is more like a dystopian version of that story – obviously with a modern twist that helps it hold its own.I enjoyed this audio of a strange world of survival at any cost. I also like that instead of the usual YA (16-20) characters that are often found in this type of read, they targeted it to a younger [...]

    • Just happened upon this book while browsing my library's ebook selection. I was so happy with it. Devin is a young boy who hears colors and feels stars. Numbers have feelings and no sense goes unused. He describes his photographic memory as a way to "tell stories." He is an old soul with unwavering kindness. Set in a dystopian future with the horizons bleak, he helps take care of a small farm with his grandfather. After his grandfather dies, he sets off to find the city and help. What he discove [...]

    • I won this book in a giveaway in exchange for an honest review. As an 8th grade teacher, I believe my students will enjoy this book. Set in the future after a major climate shift, Devin finds himself alone in a big city where children are homeless and will do anything to survive. He finds himself given an offer to be taken to a home for children where there is food, beds, and plenty of entertainment. Despite this offer being too good to be true, Devin and his friend, Kit, decide to go to this h [...]

    • Thank you to Orion for sending me this ARC! This book releases January 2014!So One Safe Place is dystopian book narrated by a male teenager. I dont usually do well with male protangnists but Devin is a very unquie character. When I started reading it I was a little confused as Devin described things in colour and sound. Such as the a building may be a certain colour and make a sound which is confusing but makes more sense as the book goes on when you find out about his condition. This is one thi [...]

    • The authors craft of this book The One Safe Place is that the author used realistic details to describe certain suspenseful situations.I think the theme of this story is to be prepared for anything.The plot of this book The One Safe Place is about a boy called Devin, who has spent his life living on a miserable farm with his grandfather, and who loves it. But when his grandfather dies Devin is forced to travel to the city and find a future there. Starting a fresh, he has nothing and no-one, so h [...]

    • In the book, the story is about a boy named Devin that lived on a farm until his grandfather died and he runs to the city. Then he meets a girl named Kit and people are talking about a home that has food and shelter and sounds to good to be real. With a act of kindness, a boy brings Devin and Kit to the home and when they come, they find out it not what it seems. Children get this zombie like sickness called "The Dream" and it makes some kids to go insane. Devin is determined to figure out why t [...]

    • I can't even tell you how much I l enjoyed this book. The synopsis compares it to The Giver, and I think that's absolutely appropriate.I love Devin, but I think my favorite character is Kit. She clearly has had an awful life but she still is a good person and helps Devin (even as she says repeatedly that you have to rely on yourself because no one else will help you). It's so obvious why she's so willing to stay at the Home even as it becomes increasingly clear that it is not a great place to be [...]

    • "To his left lay the maze and carousel. As usual, there was nobody riding the horses. Their manes flew back, and their eyes were wild, but they were trapped, speared through the heart by rigid poles, forced to turn in the same tight circle forever."With THE ONE SAFE PLACE, Tania Unsworth creates a haunting, disturbing, yet ultimately hopeful page-turner of a dystopian reminiscent of the wonderful sci-fy/fantasy/dystopian novels like A WRINKLE IN TIME I read as a kid. The writing is lyrical and o [...]

    • A gripping and suspenseful story (middle-grade-teen) about Devin, a young boy forced to go the city after his grandfather dies, leaving him to fend for their farm all alone. The world has changed; heat waves have destroyed the earth and dispersed populations. When Devin enters the city, he is amazed at all he sees, but also observes the enormous dichotomy between the wealthy and the poor. When he is taken to a home for orphans, he is told that his future will be bright, but something is not righ [...]

    • Picked this up randomly, realized at some point that it was a middle grade novel, but couldn't stop reading. Reminded me of a cross between the Mysterious Benedict Society and The Giver. Exciting, suspenseful, quick, and genuinely haunting. Sympathetic and complicated characters. If this was a few years ago, I would absolutely give it 5 stars, but (probably due to the genre and intended audience) the lack of subtlety in the writing brought it down to a 4. Still thoroughly impressed.

    • Fascinating dystopian novel set in the not-so distant future. America is covered with drought and there is a huge gap between the uber-rich and the destitute poor. When Devin's grandfather dies he goes on a quest to the city to find someone who might help him out on the family farm. Along the way Devin meets Kit, and together they end up at the Gabriel Penn Home. Something is not quite right, and together, Devin and his new friends unearth the mystery.
