Although this book gives enough information that it will be an exciting read on its own, it is much more suspenseful if you have read Tomorrow Girls: Book 1 was Louisa's story, and this second one is Rosie's. The girls' personalities continue to build throughout this volume, and we find out why Rosie is so alert for danger, This is the second book in the series, which really should be read in order. The girls' personalities continue to build throughout this volume, and we find out why Rosie is so alert for danger, and so plucky and resourceful when it comes.
Warning -- this review for the second book reveals spoilers from the first book. The second book picks up where the first left off -- with the four girls running thru the woods, escaping from their all-girls boarding school. In the woods, the four girls happen upon three boys from the all-boys boarding school, and when a sudden rain drenches them, they take shelter together.
Sharing stories, they decide to escape together, even though a group of 7 teens is harder to conceal than 4. From there on it is a dash for their lives to escape The Alliance. An exciting book for middle-graders who are not quite ready for the Hunger Games level of writing. View all 3 comments. Mar 28, Indi rated it really liked it. I love how they put the books from different point of views! Oct 01, Laura rated it it was ok Shelves: Also mediocre like the first one.
I'm going to keep reading anyway cause it's so easy and such a great break from the intense academic stuff I have to read for school. Jul 20, Erin rated it really liked it. I enjoyed the second installment in the Tomorrow Girls series and am eagerly looking forward to the third, although I did find the plot about Rosie being an illegal alien who's family purchased new id bracelets on the black market unbelievable, simply because of two things- her accent would give her away and also a school that had so carefully researched the taking of America's elite wouldn't have accepted her as there'd be limited background on her family.
Still a great story though. May 10, Cassidy Wolles rated it really liked it. The book is set in the future world with four best friends Louisa, Rosie, Evelyn, and Maddie who must depend on each other to survive. Now that they know the the truth about County Manor School they go on an adventure and don't know who they can trust. Very good book if you like outdoor adventurer books with a very intriguing plot twist.
Will Rosie's secrets get out? May 27, Marieke vanErven rated it it was amazing. I read this book as well, I don't like starting a series and not finishing it. I got it from the library and could not put it down. It was great, you probably would want to read the first book so that you understand the plot line fully. I would also recommend this book to others.

Jun 02, Awjtf rated it it was amazing Shelves: Jun 06, allison12 rated it really liked it Shelves: Loved that it was from Rosie's perspective- all the secrets, thoughts, and suspicions were perfect! Great addition to the series. Nov 18, Ava rated it it was amazing. This book is definitely a mystery book and l loved it so very much. May 30, Meghan rated it really liked it Shelves: Revised version posted on Luxury Reading and shortened version posted on my blog, Books and a Cup of Tea.
This time, though, it's because CMS has a secret - it belongs to the Alliance, the opposing team to the War raging around them. Now, self-appointed leader Rosie finds herself not only trying to protect herself, but three other girls as they flee the school. Rosie does per Revised version posted on Luxury Reading and shortened version posted on my blog, Books and a Cup of Tea. Rosie does perfectly fine surviving on her own, but can she also take care of three other girls? And on top of that, the four girls run into three boys from the school across the pond, who want to go with them.
Rosie has secrets - should she risk her secrets getting exposed to save them? Run For Cover is told in first person perspective, through Rosie's eyes. I found this a great way to give each girl their own opinion and a great chance to elaborate further with each girls' personality. Rosie is definitely the strong, go-getter, independent sort and Eva Gray writes her character amazingly. Gray gets the point across just how terrified and untrusting Rosie really is, despite how rock hard she is on the outside. This is a definite change of pace from Louisa's optimistic, carefree personality, but quite welcome.
Even though it's told through Rosie's eyes, all the other characters have solid personalites that shine through. I enjoyed getting to know each one further. The writing is simple, yet effective. I didn't mind it at all and I wouldn't let the younger feel stop you from reading them both, unless you aren't open to middle grade fiction or juvenile YA at all.
The plot was semi-predictable, with only a few twists I didn't see coming. This was not a bad thing in my book no pun intended at all, though. I thoroughly enjoyed reading further into the adventures of Louisa, Rosie, Evelyn, and Maddie and I was silently rooting them on the entire time. Overall, if you're looking for a fast and fun read, definitely check this series out. I read both Behind the Gates and Run for Cover in a few hours.
iTunes is the world's easiest way to organize and add to your digital media collection.
I will definitely be reading the third in the series, With the Enemy. I give Run for Cover a four out of five stars. Feb 22, Evelyn Mendoza rated it really liked it. I liked the book because of the way Evelyn, Rosie, Louisa, and Maddie don't all get along but when they escape the Alliance they sort of do help each other out. The main character ,Rosie, is my least favorite character in this book because of the way she judges everyone.
- Thoughts on books, food, & movies..
I know she is trying to be safe but she is sometimes risking the groups life's because she wants to find her sister. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes reading about futuristic worlds and about survival. Feb 05, Rebecca rated it liked it Shelves: Rosie, Evelyn, Louisa, and Maddie are four young teenage girls who were sent to a remote boarding school to keep them safe from the war. But the girls discovered a terrible secret - their boarding school was run by the enemy, the Alliance, who tricked parents into sending their children there to be used as hostages - and decided to escape.
This book picks up right where book one, Behind the Gates, left off, as the girls decide to try and find their way to Chicago to reunite with their parents and Rosie, Evelyn, Louisa, and Maddie are four young teenage girls who were sent to a remote boarding school to keep them safe from the war. This book picks up right where book one, Behind the Gates, left off, as the girls decide to try and find their way to Chicago to reunite with their parents and expose the truth about the school.
Shortly after, they run into three boys from the nearby boys' boarding school, who are away from the school on a camping trip and who decide to join them after learning the truth about their schools. This time the narrator is Rosie, who has a secret - she knows all about being on the run, because her wealthy parents arranged for their illegal immigration to the United States after their home in Mexico was destroyed.
She takes on the job of leading the group, but can she bring them to safety, especially when they find themselves trapped in Alliance-occupied Canada?
Tomorrow Girls #2: Run For Cover by Eva Gray on Apple Books
While I enjoyed the continuing story of the four girls, and will definitely read the final two books to find out how the story concludes, I had the same problem with this book as I did with book one. There's no information at all about who the Alliance is and what caused the war, just that it happened after life had already changed in the United States due to climate change and natural disasters.
I'm still hoping the other books in the series will have an explanation, despite this being a middle grade book I think there should be something more than just "There's a war with bad people on the other side. I just wish the background of the story had been a bit more detailed.
Sep 26, Alesia rated it it was amazing. Apr 02, Rivkah rated it really liked it Shelves: I love Rosie's character through out the book, defiant, knowing, and undeniably right She is plagued throughout the book with thoughts of Wren, her sister, and distrusts Drew.. Although this is a good book, it isn't as emotionally captivating as others. But don't let my lone, or anyone's lone review stop you from reading this book, I would look at multiple reviews before making a decision.
And as a reader, perhaps why I wasn't as "satisfied" with the book as I could have could because I love Rosie's character through out the book, defiant, knowing, and undeniably right She is plagued throughout the book with thoughts of Wren, her sister, and distrusts Drew.. And as a reader, perhaps why I wasn't as "satisfied" with the book as I could have could because it is for slightly younger audiences I found it in the juvenile section and maybe juvenile books don't talk much about the feelings of the character, or say them as well, because, maybe to a younger kid, it might not matter as much.
But I can tell you without a doubt, that this book is safe, as in there is no too mature content eg. But, you already knew that. Just like Little Women doesn't have swear words in it.

A couple of weeks ago, I read the book series "Tomorrow Girls" in English without using a dictionary.
It has a 4-book series and 4 different main character speak in the each different book.

Oct 16, Jennifer Lavoie rated it really liked it Shelves: A great addition to the first book in the series. This one is told from the perspective of Rosie, the girl who most think is too cold towards the others. But once readers hear her story, you begin to understand why she is the way she is. She's keeping secrets that could get her and her family in trouble. And it makes her that much more relatable because instead of this tough character, she's actually afraid.
Afraid of everything, all the time. She just tries to hide it from the others to act tou A great addition to the first book in the series. She just tries to hide it from the others to act tough.
I really liked her story, and I think of the group she is my favorite. She is the most complex, and though she acts like she knows everything, she has a reason for it. Each chapter ends with a mystery. If your looking for a great book that u will like All the series book are good not just this one but this one was probably my Fav one!

I just couldn't put it down! It makes me sad that they are so short. I finish them so fast. But I really really want the next one. Overview Music Video Charts. Opening the iTunes Store.
