Book Trailer: The Forsaken by Lisa Stasse

I haven't posted a book trailer in awhile and today I received an email from the author of The Forsaken who gave me the link to the books trailer. I went and watched it and absolutely fell in love with it. It's amazing to see how they turn books into these little trailers. After watching certain book trailers I always think this book would make for an interesting movie, and this was no exception.

AUTHOR: Lisa Stasse

PUBLICATION: July 10, 2012

OUTLINE:


As an obedient orphan of the U.N.A. (the super-country that was once Mexico, the U.S., and Canada), Alenna learned at an early age to blend in and be quiet—having your parents taken by the police will do that to a girl. But Alenna can’t help but stand out when she fails a test that all sixteen-year-olds have to take: The test says she has a high capacity for brutal violence, and so she is sent to The Wheel, an island where all would-be criminals end up.

The life expectancy of prisoners on The Wheel is just two years, but with dirty, violent, and chaotic conditions, the time seems a lot longer as Alenna is forced to deal with civil wars for land ownership and machines that snatch kids out of their makeshift homes. Desperate, she and the other prisoners concoct a potentially fatal plan to flee the island. Survival may seem impossible, but Alenna is determined to achieve it anyway
