If you love books with the likes of The Hunger Games and The Maze Runner, then you’ll be very happy if you find this book in your hands. Aside from the shining, shimmery cover, what got my attention was the theme of this book. Putting a bunch of teens in an isolated place with no adults is my dish. Let’s see if they kill each other, or if they build a government. Oh, let’s try locking them from the outside. Love it!
The book starts off with Benson Fisher, a 17-year old orphan who applied a scholarship to Maxfield Academy in the hopes of finally being in a regular school. But the longer he stays, he realizes that Maxfield is no ordinary private school and that escape could mean death.
It’s the kind of book that makes your heart pound and palms sweat in anticipation of what happens next. It’s a must for all book lovers out there.
