  • Genre: Dystopian
  • Recommended For: Fans of the Hunger Games

This book takes place in a futuristic world where 12 “players” ages 13-19 compete to solve an ancient puzzle. James Frey crafted Endgame cleverly and beautifully! I absolutely couldn’t put it down until the end of the last page! Endgame is complex and not just a simple read, it has the perfect amount of action and romance. Anyone who loves the Hunger Games will be intrigued by this book. Endgame: The Calling is a fantastic book and I am very excited for what comes next!
