Someone must die before another can be born...As sea levels rise and livable landmasses shrink, the Reorganized United States of America has instituted population control measures to ensure there are sufficient resources and food to sustain the growing population. Birth authorization must be paid for and obtained prior to having a child. Someone must die before another can be born, keeping the country in a population neutral position at what experts consider to be the optimal population. The new laws are enforced by a ruthless government organization known as Pop Con, responsible for terminating any children resulting from unauthorized births, and any illegals who manage to survive past their second birthday, at which point they are designated a national security threat and given the name Slip.But what if one child slipped through the cracks? What if someone knew all the loopholes and how to exploit them? Would it change anything? Would the delicate resource balance be thrown into a tailspin, threatening the lives of everyone? And how far would the government go to find and terminate the Slip?In a gripping story of a family torn apart by a single choice, Slip is a reminder of the sanctity of a single life and the value of the lives we so often take for granted.… (mais)

2nd time reading

I read this series when it first came out. I thoroughly enjoyed it then and now. I love David's books! ( )

Told from two points of view, that of two boys who could be twins except they obviously are not. One lives high, being a legitimately allowed birth. The other is a "slip", a not-allowed birth. Fascinating view into their lives, good and bad, as well as an intense view of life in a world where overpopulation is controlled one birth at a time. It is scariest in how close to reality it comes.

The ending was earth-stopping, just to warn you. ( )

I have read several books by David Estes and his writing gets better and better. I think he has become one of my favorite writers. In the Slip, it is many years in the future where the U.S. has been shrinking and in order to have resources, the government won't allow people to have a child unless they get a death match certificate. So someone can live only if someone dies. But then some get born who don't have a match and those are called Slip. The government kills any of those they find. Michael Kelly the head of Population Control has a son who is a slip and he will do anything in his power to keep his son alive. But there are others who don't see Slips as humans and will do everything to kill them and their families. The Destroyer is a psychopath and scary individual. David does a great job fleshing out the characters and making them real. He does a great job of making the readers care for the Slip and his family and hate the Destroyer and Corrigan Mars, second in command at Pop Con. When the book ended, I wasn't ready for that because I wanted to keep reading. I was sucked so far into the story I wasn't ready to let the characters go. This is going to be one trilogy that when it is over I will miss the characters.

I thank David for sending me a copy of the book for an honest review. ( )

What if all you wanted was to have a child but you had to have not only permission to do so but the money to get the permission, plus the consequences for having a child without this permission would be death for the child and probably you and your spouse? What if you get the permission but something changes and makes everything change? How far are you willing to go to protect your child and if this child does survive what will the cost be to everyone around you? Yet again, David Estes takes us on a trip of that we will not soon forget. He tears at the moral fibers and asks questions that are not so easily answered. Great read!!!
