#31: I Am Alive - Cameron Jace (With Giveaway)


(Affiliate link)


Every girl dies - not every girl really lives.

Sixteen-year-old Decca Tenderstone feels captivated when she meets gorgeous and reckless 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 labelled 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.

Deccaa doesn't need Leo's company. She has a secret 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.

Review:
Hunger Games fans, this is a story for you! 
Action, anticipation, edge-of-your-seat excitement, and terrifying fascination are all things that I felt about this story. And not just in one part, but the whole thing. 
When I first started reading, I thought it might be hard to read, since I loved The Hunger Games so much, but I was wrong. The differences in this book are so significant that you forget all about Katniss Everdeen, and can only occupy your imagination with thoughts of Decca.... oh, and Leo, of course.... and you find yourself reading along till you notice it is over. It really went by too fast for me, and I longed for more, a lot more.
Oh, Mr. Author, please hurry with Part Four. You left me dangling on the edge of a cliff, and my boots have already fallen off.

Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers.
