Publisher Description

A pulse-pounding thrill ride, where a teen girl must participate in a breathtaking race to save her brother's life--and her own.

Time is slipping away. . . .

Tella Holloway is losing it. Her brother is sick, and when a dozen doctors can't determine what's wrong, her parents decide to move to the middle of nowhere for the fresh air. She's lost her friends, her parents are driving her crazy, her brother is dying--and she's helpless to change anything.

Until she receives mysterious instructions on how to become a Contender in the Brimstone Bleed. It's an epic race across jungle, desert, ocean, and mountain that could win her the prize she desperately desires: the Cure for her brother's illness. But all the Contenders are after the Cure for people they love, and there's no guarantee that Tella (or any of them) will survive the race.

The jungle is terrifying, the clock is ticking, and Tella knows she can't trust the allies she makes. And one big question emerges: Why have so many fallen sick in the first place?

Victoria Scott's breathtaking novel grabs readers by the throat and doesn't let go.

Loved it.

This book is phenomenal. It's intriguing, suspenseful, and action-packed, but leaves some heartfelt moments along the way(left me "fangirl-ing":D)! Each character is different from the rest, with special quality traits that make them all stand out. The author writes in such a way that you can really feel how the characters do(heart aches and "happy dances"!). Left me reading for hours on end; I won't spoil it, but there are MANY surprises along the way! Anyways, the following reasons above are why you should read this book!:) bravo Victoria!
