Summary from Amazon:
Most of the time, my recipe for a good book involves some type of fantasy, maybe a quest or journey, and *le sigh* some romance.

People, I dug this book. A lot.
It starts out as a typical "what is going on in this school, oh my we can't leave, whatever shall be do?" thing. And then it gets more and more twisted and I did NOT predict what was coming. Not at all. I wasn't sure who the good guys were, who the bad guys were, why anybody was doing the things they were doing, and then the END. Sweet fancy Moses, I think my jaw actually dropped open when I heard the last line.
There are some flaws in the book. There's a distinct lack of characterization, especially among the secondary characters. Heck, I don't think we're ever even told what Benson, the main character, looks like. And too much time was spent detailing paintball strategies. So much so, I thought for sure it was somehow crucial to the storyline. It really wasn't. However, I stuck with the book and I'm glad I did. You can bet I started searching for the sequel, "Feedback", immediately.
