Book 2 of 2

Benson Fisher escaped from Maxfield Academy’s deadly rules and brutal gangs. He thought that the worst was over. But now Benson is trapped in a different kind of prison—a town filled with familiar faces. Classmates from Maxfield who Benson had seen die. Friends he was afraid he had killed.

They are all pawns in the school’s twisted experiment, held captive and controlled by an unseen force. And while Benson struggles to figure out who, if anyone, can be trusted, he discovers that Maxfield Academy’s plans are darker than anything he imagined—and they may be impossible to stop.

Students who like sci-fi and dystopian novels will enjoy Feedback (definitely read Variant first!). It’s definitely action-packed, and will keep you guessing– with a little romance thrown in too.

Book 1 of 2

Benson Fisher thought that a scholarship to Maxfield Academy would be the ticket out of his dead-end life. He was wrong. Now he’s trapped in a school that’s surrounded by a razor-wire fence, where video cameras monitor his every move—and where breaking the rules equals death. All Benson wants is to find a way out. But when he stumbles upon the real secret the school has been hiding, he realizes that escape may be impossible.

Although it’s not a dystopian novel, readers who love those types of books will enjoy this one. It’s suspenseful and very surprising!
