The Forsaken by Lisa M. Stasse, is the story of Alenna, a sixteen-year-old obedient orphan that does all she can to be quiet and to blend in. When she fails a test that all 16-year-olds must take, she is no longer able to hide. The test says that Alenna has a high capacity for brutal violence, and so she is sent to the wheel, and island where all would-be criminals end up. The life expectancy of prisoners at the wheel is just two years. Her time there seems a lot longer as she deals with dirty, violent, and chaotic conditions. She is dealing with civil wars for land ownership and machines that snatch kids out of their makeshift homes. Out of desperation, she teams up with Liam, a charismatic warrior, and they concoct a potentially fatal plan to escape the island. Paperback, 384 pages.
