Kress has written a spellbinding, suspenseful and thoroughly original novel that will keep readers guessing. Each exceptionally well-executed character develops, grows and changes organically. A real gem.
The economy has collapsed. Jobs are scarce, and 16 is now the age of adulthood. When Amy Kent is offered a full-time job with benefits, she jumps at the chance to provide for her family. Unfortunately the job has Amy starring in a hit reality show. The contestants participate in a variety of scenarios, and audience members vote on how they will react for a chance to win prize money. What will Amy do if the next scenario is a life-or-death one? (VIKING, Nov., 512 pp., $17.99, ISBN: 9780670012473, HC, 14 & Up)
