How I Got the Book: Review Copy

Summary of the Book:

After a polarized nation was broken by the threat of civil war, States have now become countries. And in New Maine, things have gotten worse.

Giving my family a better life is everything. And my selection to attend an elite prep school suddenly offers my family a dramatically different life—food on the table, a roof over their heads, and a fighting chance at a future.

Everything is going great until some of my friends begin ghosting me, and then disappear. Soon it becomes clear this “chance of a lifetime” isn’t the Holy Grail I was promised. And the attention from one of Easton’s elite has me questioning why a boy with a golden future wants to risk it by being seen with me.

But when I find out why I’m really at this school, I may have to trust him if I want to live.

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. This is the first book I have read by Barb Han. It was an interesting story that was told, but I wanted more then just romance. I think the whole selection process and what it does for their family is a great concept in the world that they live in. There was a little mystery and intriguing. I thought I was going to understand the elite prep school scene but I was thrown off by all of it.

My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
