Variant By Robison Wells

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.

Creepy, nail-bitting and gut-wrenching good. 
If you think your school is strict, think again. Maxfield Academy is a freaking NIGHTMARE.
I was on the edge of my seat throughout. I honestly stayed up all night to read this book. There were these great, completely unexpected twists, and WOW! 
This book was perfect. 
The main theme was about survival and trust and reminded me of Lord Of The Flies. 
The protagonist was perfect. He was heavily flawed but really likable and you actually cared what happened to him!
It had so much of drama and intrigue and then this totally HOLY MOTHER OF GOD GIGANTIC CLIFFHANGER!
This book has so many things working for it, it is a must read for all Thriller/ Dystopian fans. 

An exciting and suspenseful Thriller.
But seriously, it was so good, I peed my pants. 
No, I didn't.
Or, Did I? o.O
P.S- There was PAINTBALL! That's a course I wish my univ offered!
Easily the best part of the book!


  1. I've never even heard of this before, but it looks amazing! Straight onto the never-ending wishlist it goes :)

  2. This book sounds so interesting! I can't wait to read this, thanks for putting it on my radar. I love that it's written from a guy's perspective too.
