Convince us to read the book: This book really set that survival tone for me. It's one of those "lord of the flies" type of books that doesn't really copy any story lines, but excels in creating its own.
Memorable or Forgettable: This book was a breath of fresh air with all of these books like The Hunger Games and The Testing being generically written.
Cover: This book's cover is OK.  With talking about beating some clock and scribbles that look like counting days, it sets a survival tone.
Age Range: 12 through 18 and up
Quality: 4Q Better than most
Popularity: 4P Broad general teen appeal
Annotation: A group of teens are transported to an island filled with danger. They have one goal: escape in 364 days or die.
