Seventeen-year-old Gene struggles to survive in a society where humans have been eaten to near extinction by the general population. When Gene is chosen to participate in the government-sponsored hunt for the remaining humans, he must learn the art of the hunt but also elude his fellow hunters whose suspicions about his true human nature are growing.

    Wow, I love this cover and although the premise – to me – is a little vague, I still think I'm interested. Great pick Hafsah!

    LOVE IT! I can't wait for this one either Hafsah! I can say with 100% certainty that when it's my time to die, I definitely don't want being eaten to be the way I go. *shudders*

    i like the cover and summary for this book. although, random moment: my great grandfather was named Gene. seems weird since he was born in like the 1920s.
