Chris's May 2013 Staff Pick: If you liked Maze Runner, you will like this. In a world in which you cannot go past the wall with out dying and having to be slated to some girl, who might get pregant, what are your other options? This book gives a guys point of view of being a teenage father. (There are so few of those.) But also not having the choice to be there to raise the child, for when they turn 18 they are heisted. I can't wait for more.— From Chris's Picks
Fans of Incarceron by Catherine Fisher and Variant by Robison Wells won't want to miss this magnetic first book in a gripping dystopian sci-fi series. Marie Lu, New York Times bestselling author of the Legend trilogy, raves that Taken is "an action-packed thrill ride from beginning to end. More, please!"
Gray Weathersby has grown up expecting to disappear at midnight on his eighteenth birthday. They call it the Heist—and it happens to every boy in Claysoot. His only chance at escape is to climb the Wall that surrounds Claysoot. A climb no one has ever survived . . .
“An action-packed thrill ride from beginning to end. I devoured this in one sitting and might have gnawed a nail or two off from all the excitement. More, please!”
“A suspenseful trek. Readers will eagerly await the next installment.”
“An action-packed, emotionally charged, plot-twisting adventure.”
“A dramatic work that is reminiscent of Lois Lowry’s The Giver and will appeal to fans of Suzanne Collins’s The Hunger Games.”
