Kept me turning pages, nearly finished it in a day. The ending definitely left me confused. ( )

I really loved this book--a fast paced psychological thriller with a good bit of meat on its bones. A wide cast of nicely varied characters and lots going on, but a clear, strong plotline. And no swearing? Love it.

More here! ( )

This was a quick read. It did end with some unanswered questions, prompting me to want to read the next book. ( )

This is an easy read. Writing and style are too young even for a YA book. Huge cliffhanger at the end. ( )

In a world that is inundated with YA novels that just keep sounding the same, Variant is a breath of fresh air. Thinking outside the box Wells develops a story that leaves teens and adults alike wanting to know how it's going to end! ( )

This isn't one of those scare-you-straight schools, is it? I asked Ms. Vaughn, as we passed through the heavy chain-link gate.

Book description
At Maxfield Academy, the choices are:

Society
Havoc
Variant

Benson must join one in order to survive.
But he is determined to escape.
And he can trust only himself.


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. A school where video cameras monitor his every move. Where there are no adults. Where the kids have split into groups in order to survive.

Where breaking the rules equals death.

But when Benson stumbles upon the school's real secret, he realizes that playing by the rules could spell a fate worse than death, and that escape — his only real hope for survival — may be impossible.

Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

After years in foster homes, seventeen-year-old Benson Fisher applies to New Mexico's Maxfield Academy in hopes of securing a brighter future, but instead he finds that the school is a prison and no one is what he or she seems.
