The People of Forever Are Not Afraid follows three girls in their required army enlistment. They enter as young children and emerge as women, forever changing the way they think and act.The three girls do have very different personalities, which makes the story interesting. However, it switches between their point-of-views, which makes the story harder to follow, especially considering that sometimes the narrator isn't named at all. The plot jumps timelines frequently, going back and forth as the girls relive memories and try to move forward. It mostly progresses forward, but ends with a story of someone's childhood. There's not a lot of action, just a lot of story telling. This isn't a bad book, but it's definitely not conventional and doesn't have a strong steady plot.
