Praise For The 100:
“Dark and riveting. . . A mash-up of The Lord of the Flies, Across the Universe, and The Hunger Games.” –Booklist
“[Readers will] be drawn in by the Lord of the Flies–style tension that builds as the teens struggle to set up a new society on a battered Earth, and by the smoldering romances that hang in the balance.” –Publishers Weekly
The 100 by Kass Morgan is the first book of an epic sci-fi drama that’s already inspired a TV show premiering on The CW in 2014. As the series begins, one-hundred teens take an epic journey from outer space to an Earth that was abandoned long ago.
The details: In the future, humans live in space stations, orbiting far above Earth’s toxic atmosphere. But faced with dwindling resources, leaders know they must reclaim their homeland before it’s too late.
One hundred teenagers with dark pasts — juvenile delinquents considered expendable by society — are sent to the planet to test its conditions. Are they on an info-gathering expedition … or a suicide mission?
In this pulse-pounding drama from debut author Kass Morgan, teens are left to fend for themselves on a savagely beautiful planet. Haunted by the secrets that landed them there, they must learn to trust – and love – again if they hope to survive.
