{Synopsis} –Every girl dies – not every girl really lives.

Sixteen-year-old Decca Tenderstone feels captivated when she meets Leo, who is arrogant, silent, beautiful, and shoots almost every one he meets.

the usual boring girl meets badboy story… hmm… with a twist …

They live in a dystopian future in Los Angeles where every sixteen-year-old is ranked on a scale from one to ten to determine their future. Outranks, who are considered a danger to society, are forced to attend the Monster Show, a brutal sacrificing ritual that is broadcasted worldwide on live TV, where rebellious teens are labeled Bad Kidz or Monsters and get to fight for their lives in deadly games.

To prove that you're still alive you have to scream I Am Alive every six hours. Lower your voice, and you're dead.

Decca doesn't need Leo's company. She has secrets of her own. While they both can't stand each other, she will find out why she doesn't fit into any rank.

Nothing will stand in her way as she has to make choices concerning love, life, staying alive, growing up, and finding out who she really is.

“Every girl dies – not every girl really lives.”

{My thoughts} – This book is centered around a sixteen-year-old girls life by the name of {Decca Tenderstone}. She is on a journey to locate a friend of hers that had been sent to the {Dizny Battlefieldz}. In order to be sent there you need to be ranked as a {Monster} what that means is that the {Summit} doesn’t believe you to be anything but wasted space living within society and those that are classified {monsters} have the potential to destroy their entire families. She decides that since she is old enough to participate in the rankings that she will make sure she is sent there so that she can search for her missing friend that she hopes is alive but is under the impression is dead. She is a determined girl that makes some friends and loses some friends throughout her quest. The biggest lesson that she learns is how to stand up for herself and show {The Summit} that she is not going to back down and will stand ground on her beliefs. The fact that she is strong willed, forceful and fearless helps to make this book an excellent read. If you liked the {Hunger games} I am sure you will like this book as it is similar but had a much better storyline, the characters help to engage the reader and the plot has many twists and turns that makes you want to continue reading the book completely through. I look forward to reading the second book in this series as this one made for an incredibly good read that didn’t disappoint me in the least. It lived up to all my expectations in a book! The biggest of which is leaving me wanting more!
