Kick-Butt Book Trailers (1)

Helloooo everyone! So it's a Thursday, and usually that means I don't have much to post. But, I thought I would start sharing book trailers with you guys on Thursdays! Yesterday an author contacted me with a link to her book trailer and let me just say, I cannot wait to read her book now!

Author: Lisa M. Stasse
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers 
Page Count: 375 pages, Hardcover
Date Published: July 10 2012
Find it on Goodreads: The Forsaken

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, an 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.
 (Summary from Goodreads)
WOW. I am really looking forward to reading this! Sounds so exciting!
Let me know what you think, or if you've already read it, how was it? I'd love to know!
Have a good day/night everyone!
