Waiting On VARIANT by Robison Wells

About VARIANT: 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.

Okay, I think most of you know how I feel about books with rules, and whether or not those rules should be broken. So VARIANT is right up my alley. And luckily, I don't have to wait super-long to read it (VARIANT comes out October 18 from HarperTeen), because I happen to know Rob--and he's fantastic. And he may or may not have lent me an ARC.

And follow Rob on his blog or twitter or on his weekly podcast, The Appendix.

What book are you waiting on??

I'm one of the few lucky ones who got to read it pre-press. It's really, really good. (No surprise, of course.) I already have a copy pre-ordered on Amazon.
