High school seniors spending their last summer outdoing each other in a game that is survival of the fittest and the winner takes home some much needed cash! Being a stand alone and non dystopian, I was excited to read this YA book. Told through two perspectives, Heather and Dodge, they each set the stage for this small town in upstate New York where each senior has a reason to participate in this crazy game to get the cash to get out of town! I completely related to the small town feel.
The characters really drove this book. It was easy to get to know each of them as they told their own stories and I appreciated where they were coming from and wanting more for their own lives. I enjoyed that they found hope in this crazy game and doing anything they can to survive it.
Wild ride, interesting story about seniors in a small town in TX and how they have a series of thrill dares in a competition to win a big pot of money.
Tells about the kids, their reasons why they are participating, and how life doesn't go as planned.
Page turner for sure, you gotta find out what happens.
