The Forsaken is set in the future, where the U.S., Canada, and Mexico have joined together to create the UNA. Sixteen-year-olds all have to take a test to see if they'll become criminals. Those children are sent to a mysterious island called the Wheel. Alenna hasn't trusted the government since they took away her parents, but she would never suspect that she would fail the test. On the Wheel where she meets Liam, a boy who tells her that the government has many secrets, and the only way to survive is to escape. This book was amazing! It was very suspenseful and I would definitely recommend it.
