I love a good YA book (perhaps because I suffer from a case of arrested development). Whatever the case. The Chaos Walking series (The Knife of Never Letting Go, The Ask and the Answer, Monsters of Men) is probably my favorite YA series. Ness is an incredible writer, and this series is riveting.

Pursued by power-hungry Prentiss and mad minister Aaron, young Todd and Viola set out across New World searching for answers about his colony's true past and seeking a way to warn the ship bringing hopeful settlers from Old World.
A story about a boy in a town where there were only men due to a virus that had killed all women and along with the death of females came the curse of being able to hear everyone’s thoughts. The story was suspenseful at all times and it kept my heart racing.

SummaryAdd a Summary
Todd hears silence in a world of noise. This silence drives forward a quest to outrun his town, outwit a murderer, and reach a destination of Hope.
Todd lives in a town where there are no women, and men hear each other's thoughts all the time. As far as Todd can remember, it's just the way things are. One day, though, Todd finds someone in the forest -- a girl. More incredible, the girl has come from space; the advance scout from a colony ship. And, most incredibly, Todd can't hear her thoughts at all. When the men from Todd's town learn about the girl, terrible secrets are revealed -- and they have to run for their lives through a world larger and more dangerous than Todd ever imagined.
