really liked it
bookshelves: sci-fi

Crazy book about the near future where the kids are out of control. in response to this the government of an unnamed asian nation(ok its japan) sends one 8th grade class to fight a death match battle royale on an island.
each kid is fixed with an explosive collar, given a back pack with food water and a random item(a weapon or some sorts perhaps, or maybe a gps locator for the other kids, even a bull horn) the kids then proceed to kill each other till one is left.
one crazy book, i am glad it has a list of the characters in the front, i had to cross off names as they died to keep track of who was who. its tough with really really foreign names.
