This book was just not original at all. It was the hunger games all over again. The only difference was that when they finished the test they would go to university so maybe, just maybe the next books will be interesting.
The choices they had to make, the life or death test (games), the dystopian setting (colonies that specialize in things like food, fabric, mining etc.) even the love part. A boy who does not leave her side and wants to do everything to get her to safety.
When someone beyond the fence threw in a bag with food to help her, I almost fell of my chair. Katness was the one getting all the things she needed the most and now chia is the only one receiving gifts?
These small details made it feel like the book was an exact copy.
I still award three stars, just because it is very easy to read and it is entertaining. I do think she can write, I would love to read a book written by Joelle Charbonneau that has an original story.
