Whoa!

The descriptions on the back of this book include blurbs from starred reviews. Those words are:

Chilling
Provocative
Shocking
All the marks of a classic

I could leave it at that and it would be accurate.

I could compare this to Lord of the Flies. Also accurate.

Like Battle Royale? This book is for you.

I have never read a middle grade book and thought: Fuck. But that was my response to this book. It is simply a brutal look at finding meaning. A must read.
