Variant (Variant, #1)Variant by Robison Wells

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Although I didn't win her giveaway (can't win 'em all), Donna over at Weaving a Tale or Two was 100% right about Variant. An excellent YA novel by Robison Wells! I'm so glad my mom's library had a copy.

Benson Fisher has been passed around the foster care system for years. When a scholarship becomes available for Maxfield Academy, he jumps at the opportunity. But, it doesn't take long to realize that Maxfield Academy isn't what he thought it was.

Staying isn't an option, but escaping is nearly impossible. And, the punishment for breaking the rules is death.

A very creative story. I really enjoyed the characters, and was totally surprised by the twist.
