"A book that grabs you by the throat and doesn’t let go. The Hunt is both terrifying and sublime, with every page evoking that fragile, yet unyielding thing we call humanity." —Andrea Cremer, New York Times bestselling author of the Nightshade Trilogy In a world where humans have been eaten to near extinction, seventeen-year-old Gene has only managed to survive by painstakingly concealing his true species. If the bloodthirsty creatures surrounding him knew what he really was—a human—he would be devoured swiftly and terribly. When Gene is chosen to participate in the government-sponsored hunt for the last remaining humans, it thrusts him into the fight of his life—and into the path of a human girl who makes him feel things he never thought possible. Now, he must learn the art of the hunt and elude his fellow hunters whose suspicions about his true human nature are growing. But most importantly, Gene and the girl he loves must find a way to forge a life together in a brutal world that’s bent on their destruction. With his propulsive plot and highly developed characters, readers will find it impossible to resist the vivid world Andrew Fukuda has created in this stunning standout debut. Readers craving a book that grips and mesmerizes them like The Hunger Games will love The Hunt.
I’m pushing aside the memory of my nightmare, pushing aside thoughts of Alex, pushing aside thoughts of Hana and my old school, push, push, push, like Raven taught me to do. The old life is dead. But the old Lena is dead too. I buried her. I left her beyond a fence, behind a wall of smoke and ?ame. Lauren Oliver delivers an electrifying follow-up to her acclaimed New York Times bestseller, Delirium. This riveting, brilliant novel crackles with the fire of fierce defiance, forbidden romance, and the sparks of a revolution about to ignite.

I am writing a novel, and I'm posting part of it for everybody to read! Please tell me ways I can improve it, because I want to get it published one day. I remember when my life was normal. Well, almost normal. My dad has this bizarre condition called Parkinsons, and his medication and his slight tremor made it a tiny bit less normal. But other than that, I was like any other six-year-old girl. We had moved out of our small house in Alabama into a bigger one that was closer to the state line. I chose some lavender paint for my walls, and after it dried, I moved all of my belongings in. We were happy. Our family of five had fun. We went to resturaunts, we saw movies, we laughed. I could actually look into my dad's eyes and not feel an urge to cry. But that was four years ago. And a lot of that has changed. I can sit here, at this yellow desk, stare at these lavender walls, and my life never makes any more sense than it did yesterday. Nothing makes sense. Why my dad lives to torture me doesn't make sense. Dad's endless phone calls and crazy texts never make sense. Math class hardly makes any sense. Why my only joys in life are my friends, my diary, and my mother and siblings doesn't make any sense. Why I don't tell the truth about the night mare I live doesn't make sense. But I'm going to make one thing right. I'm going to tell the truth. Everything that's happened to me. I promise there will be no lies. None. The truth won't be pretty, trust me, I've lived through it, I know. But I will tell the truth, the entire, utter truth.
