by Ann Aguirre [YA Aguirre]

For fans of the Hunger Games and Divergent, Enclave is the first in the dystopian Razorland trilogy. Kids in the Enclave only earn a name only if they make it to their fifteenth birthday. Many of them don't. Those that do are then sorted into one of three groups — Builders, Breeders, or Hunters. Deuce is a hunter and her directive is to go outside the enclave and bring home meat, facing off against the Freaks threatening to slaughter them all. Deuce has always followed the rules and wanted to be a hunter for as long as she could remember. When she is partnered with Fade, a hunter who doesn't play by the rules, her outlook begins to change and she realizes the Freak threat is more serious than the Enclave's elders are letting on. Deuce comes to understand that playing by the rules could get her killed, which sets her on a path she never expected to be on, with a boy she never thought she could trust. -- recommended by Sam N. - Gere Branch Library [If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try the other two books in the trilogy: Outpost and Horde. The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins, the Divergent trilogy by Veronica Roth, the Legend series by Marie Lu.]

[Also available in downloadable audio format.]
