What I’m waiting for : Variant by Robison Wells

Variant by Robison Wells

October 18th, 2011 (US)

Benson Fisher thought 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.

I’ve heard of this book thanks to JC Lattes who will publish the book in France next year. It’s a dystopian novel of course but written by a male writer which is less usual. And his brother is a writer too!

The description intrigues me so I hope it will be good!

    No no no and no lol ^^ It’s enough ! Between Die for Me and Divergent now you add this one !! You want my to-read shelves to die !! Nasty Francesca (please don’t take it too badly, it’s a joke ^^)

    In fact it looks really interesting, a little like Fallen but more frightening and dark 🙂

    Thanks a lot for all these discoveries.

    (Hope it was clear my first developped comment in English lol)

    I wonder how it will be if it’s written by a man ! I think that the “sensibility” will be different, men and women can have different views… I’m very curious ! (I’m not very used to read male authors^^)

      The only one dystopian novel I’ve read by a male author was The Maze Runner by James Dashner and it was very focused on the story, the action, and not the romance.

        Yes, I remember you’ve said that. It’s logical, but it’s a pity that male authors can’t write about romance.^^ lol
