Variant by Robison Wells--Book Review

VARIANT by Robison Wells. What a book. I couldn't stop turning the pages. The twist was amazing and I didn't have it exactly figured out, which was really nice. The characters were fabulous. I loved them right away, however, I wanted to throw the book across the room at the end. I don't like cliff hanger endings. It left me with more questions than answers and I'm not sure I want to read the rest of the series until the last one comes out because I'm afraid they will all be that way. I can't recommend this for everyone because there is some brutal violence in it, but overall it was an enjoyable read.


Benson Fisher thought that a scholarship to Maxfield Academy would be the ticket out of his dead-end life.
He was wrong.
Now he's trapped in a school that's surrounded by a razor-wire fence. A school where video cameras monitor his every move. Where there are no adults. Where the kids have split into groups in order to survive.
Where breaking the rules equals death.
But when Benson stumbles upon the school's real secret, he realizes that playing by the rules could spell a fate worse than death, and that escape--his only real hope for survival--may be impossible.
