Variant by Robinson Wells

 

Synopsis:

 

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.

 

There is good things and not so good things about this book.  It is unique and it deserves props for that but it's almost too unique and rather outlandish or hokey at times.  

 

I listened to this on Audio and the Michael Goldstom is not too bad, I would give him 4 stars.
