Noone gets voted off this island - they get killed. And it's not really an island, but you get the idea. Not a lot of big surprises in this book, but it was an interesting premise. Reminded me a little of "The Lottery", or maybe "Logan's Run". I think this would be a particularly good listen for a teenage girl since the main character is a sixteen year old girl, who (aside from trying to stay alive) is struggling with the usual teen insecurities and trying to understand her feelings.
Boy, I wish that every woman was able to take off for a year following a divorce and focus on nothing but themselves and their feelings. Actually, I wish every man and woman had the luxury of doing that at some point in their life, divorced or not. Unfortunately the reality that most people face is a far cry from the voyage of self-discovery this author experiences. I don't know what I was hoping for from this book, but it wasn't the whining of a mid-thirties woman who really doesn't have anything to whine about.
