I'm not sure how this book has so many great reviews. The dialogue between the two teenaged protagonists approached "Juno"-levels of annoyance and the book isn't particularly well written. This book is so inexpertly written, that I half expected that a teenager actually wrote it.
Seriously, save your credit. This is a young adult novel that I wouldn't even recommend to any self-respecting young adult reader.
If the friend wanted to get into Sci-Fi for the first time and hadn't read The Hunger Games, yes. This is clearly derivative of The Hunger Games, but it does have some differences. I love Sci-Fi and I also really liked The Hunger Games (although I recognize the books faults). I consider this book 'Sci-Fi with training wheels.'
