Awesome & Violent

I thought the book was amazing and am now reading the rest of the series. The book has suspension, deception, and action. There wasn't one part where my eyes weren't glued to the book. However there is a lot of violence you need to watch out for. There is a crazed lunatic who makes up these "games" where people are murdered. In this book, there are bombs, poison gasses, poison, snare guns, explosions, bombs, other riffles, and hurricanes. Also, high school kids get drunk at a party, there is at least one curse word every couple of pages, and there is a mention of smoking once or twice. On the other hand though, the main characters, Tory, Hi, Ben, and Shelton, show bravery, friendship, and loyalty as they work together to protect themselves, their families, and their community.

This title has:

Great role models
Too much violence
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
