PUB DATE: May 23rd 2012
Publisher: Amazon
Pages: 267
SUMMARY:
Every girl dies - not every girl really lives.
Sixteen-year-old Decca Tenderstone feels captivated when she meets Leo, who is arrogant, silent, beautiful, and shoots almost every one he meets.
the usual boring girl meets badboy story... hmm... with a twist ...
They live in a dystopian future in Los Angeles where every sixteen-year-old is ranked on a scale from one to ten to determine their future. Outranks, who are considered a danger to society, are forced to attend the Monster Show, a brutal sacrificing ritual that is broadcasted worldwide on live TV, where rebellious teens are labelled Bad Kidz or Monsters and get to fight for their lives in deadly games.
To prove that you're still alive you have to scream I Am Alive every six hours. Lower your voice, and you're dead.
Decca doesn't need Leo's company. She has secrets of her own. While they both can't stand each other, she will find out why she doesn't fit into any rank.
Nothing will stand in her way as she has to make choices concerning love, life, staying alive, growing up, and finding out who she really is.
*SPECIAL NOTE*: during the blitz, the bundle pack (3 books in 1) for Kindle is only 0.99c! Purchase link: Amazon and All "Likers" of Cameron's Facebook page will receive book 4 free!
Just want to say that this book IS SO AWESOME! I read it a while back and WOAH...it gives Divergent & the hunger games a run for their money! I'll most likely review it soon on the blog! TAKE THE OFFER!! =D
The EXCERPTS:
From Chapter 1: (love the begging sentence)
I am going to surprise you. You have no idea…
Every time the bus hits a patch of uneven pavement, it jostles me from side to side. I am holding on to the overhead railing while on my tiptoes, trying my best to keep my balance. Faustina, the school’s queen bee, laughs at me, checking out her fingernails. She must be calling me a dork under her breath. She is predicted to become a Nine today, and Nines are always mean to me.
I live in a world where every teen is ranked on a scale from five to nine. Nines are the luckiest and highest rank in our nation, and Fives are the lowest rank allowed. I’ve been told that I would make a perfect Seven.
The bus stops in front of my school, Cubberley High. I wait for the Nines and Eights to get out first. Nines are usually the most beautiful. Eights are the most elegant. Predicted Sevens like me have to wait in line. At least I get to get up before the Sixes and the Fives.
From Chapter 28:
The first thing I see when I wake up is a pair of beautiful green eyes. It’s Leo.
He is holding a bar of chocolate in his hand, and he doesn’t have a sleeping bag. I crawl sleepily out of mine.
Are you okay?” he asks.
I had a bad dream,” I yawn.
Really? I thought I heard you cry out.
So? Can’t a girl have some privacy in a bad dream? Why are you awake?” The rest are asleep.
Just checking on you.” He smirks, a little better than usual, with a smile hidden somewhere. “I brought you chocolate,” he offers.
I take it abruptly. “You found my weak spot.” I bite hard. The chocolate tastes funny. “So what’s yours?
Mine?
Your weak spot.
I don’t have one,” he says bluntly.
“Not even me?”
“That, we have to talk about when we get out of here alive.”
From Chapter 22:
I am not my heart rate. I am not my skills. I am not my sleeping problems. I am not my stress. I am not my fears. I am not how I look like. I am the very essence of me. I am my will. I am my passion. I am my beliefs. I am how much I can give and receive love. I am infinite and possible. I am my soul. How can the iAm ever measure this?
Most important of all, I am not that predictable.
