Goodreads | Amazon UK | Amazon US 

Jayne Sparks, a potty-mouthed, rebellious seventeen-year-old and her best friend, shy and bookish Tony Green, have a pretty typical high school existence, until several seemingly unrelated incidents converge, causing a cascade of events that change their lives forever. Jayne and Tony, together with a group of runaway teens, are hijacked and sent into a forest, where nothing and no one are as they seem. Who will emerge triumphant? And what will they be when they do?                                  **No sex or drugs. Yes, contains some violence and foul language - some might say excessive foul language. Not meant for middle-grade readers (less than 15 years of age).**

My thoughts
This book has received some stick from readers but screw them because I thought it was amazing. I found this book absolutely hilarious, Jayne was funny and twisted at the same time. I think the author could have left out some of the swearing as it did seem as if she was trying too hard to appeal to younger readers. Some parts were confusing like how Jayne was so hunky dorey with Tony just pulling a gun out on a fellow student but hey the laughs made up for these little indiscretions. 

This is The Hunger Games for fae. I found it fantastic and was easily lost within the story.
