Giveaway: The Forsaken by Lisa M. Stasse

 

Enter to win a signed copy of THE FORSAKEN by Lisa M. Stasse!

 

When the world has given up on you, who will you become?

As an obedient orphan of the U.N.A. (the super-country that was once Mexico, the U.S., and Canada), Alenna learned at an early age to blend in and be quiet—having your parents taken by the police will do that to a girl. But Alenna can’t help but stand out when she fails a test that all sixteen-year-olds have to take: The test says she has a high capacity for brutal violence, and so she is sent to The Wheel, a mysterious island where all would-be criminals end up.

The life expectancy of prisoners on The Wheel is just two years, but with dirty, violent, and chaotic conditions, the time seems a lot longer as Alenna is forced to deal with civil wars for land ownership and machines that snatch kids out of their makeshift homes. Desperate, she and the other prisoners concoct a potentially fatal plan to flee the island. Survival may seem impossible, but Alenna is determined to achieve it anyway.

I would limit who I associated with, become a farmer to become as independent as I could, or a fisherman. Something in the woods.

I would also limit my associations and try to be independent and not draw much attention to myself.

I would stay the same; being a new person too much of a hassle.

Stay the same. I like where life is taking me now, so I want it to stay that way.

I think I would become a new person, being around your family somewhat shapes us and makes us the way we are.

If I had to start my life over I wouldn't change myself too much. I think I'd try to overcome some faults, but I would remain true to myself.

If I had to start over, I'd definitely see it as an opportunity to make any changes that I'd previously been too scared to make or that I couldn't make, but other than that I'd choose to stay basically the same. I wouldn't feel comfortable changing too much about who I am.

I'm not sure what'd I'd do. Probably run to my best friend and try to figure things out. I think with something that drastic, It'd probably be forced on me to have to become someone different.

Thanks for an opportunity to win
