I want to read that...

The Forsaken by Lisa Stasse

From Goodreads: Alenna Shawcross is a sixteen-year-old orphan growing up in a police state formed from the ashes of Canada, the US and Mexico after a global economic meltdown.

But when she unexpectedly fails ‘the test’ - a government initiative which supposedly identifies teens destined to be criminals - she wakes up alone on a remote island reserved for the criminally insane.

Terrified and confused, she soon encounters a group of other teen survivors battling to stay alive, including Liam, a boy who will become her love... and her lifeline.

Soon Alenna makes the terrifying discovery that there’s more to the island (and her past) than she could ever have guessed... But who can she trust? And can she ever escape?

This sounds good right?  I find it interesting how different the US and UK covers are as well!  They give it a very different feel don't you think? 

Either way I want to read it!

Check out the trailer for it:

It's published July 2012 (US) and August 2012 (UK)
