Children's Chapter Book Review: The List by Patricia Forde 

This newly released fantasy novel is suitable for readers aged 12+ and explores the idea of standing up for yourself and for what you believe in.
It also focuses on the importance of language.
The main character is a young girl named Letta, who is an apprentice to the Wordsmith.
She is able to read all of the words that have been spoken, written or thought.
All of the other residents in Ark (the last safe place on planet Earth), are only able to speak 'List'. List is a language comprising of only 500 words. 
But when the Wordsmith disappears one day, Letta becomes the new Wordsmith and it is up to her to shorten the language of List even further.
However, when she meets a mysterious young boy who knows all of the words from the forbidden language, she has to choose whether to allow the language of List to be lost forever or follow the boy on to a path of freedom.. or banishment.
This is an ideal book for those who enjoy dystopian novels.

The List is available through Affirm Press and has an RRP of $16.99
