    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.

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The narrator was not suited to be a teenage boy. Instead, it just felt awkward listening to an obviously adult man reading the story.


    What was most disappointing about Robison Wells’s story?

    The plot was out of control, almost as if Wells wanted to take it in a hundred different directions at once.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Michael Goldstrom?

    Anyone who could pull of a young narrator.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment
