QUALITY



Great action & suspense with a futuristic twist that will intrigue many teens!


I teach high school and my students enjoy this book, especially after reading The Hunger Games Trilogy. The story has teen role models who have similar personalities to the teens of today's world. The use of alternative slang terms are a good way for the characters to express strong feel.
