it was amazing

Robison tells an interesting tale about a teen, Benson Fisher, who has no people in his life who care about him. When an offer to attend an exclusive academy is offered, he jumps at the chance. Soon after his arrival, he discovers it isn't quite like it was advertised. For one thing, there are no teachers. Just students. From the beginning, all Benson wants to do is escape. The book had a "Lord of the Flies" feel to it and a little "Hunger Games" with kids killing kids, but I was left with the very real question of who is really killing who. It was a tense book, and I was left hanging at the end, so I'm definitely going to read "Feedback" when it's released in October.
