Fire & FloodBook - 2014
Time is slipping away. . . .
Tella Holloway is losing it. Her brother is sick, and when a dozen doctors can't determine what's wrong, her parents decide to move to the middle of nowhere for the fresh air. She's lost her friends, her parents are driving her crazy, her brother isdying - and she's helpless to change anything.
Until she receives mysterious instructions on how to become a Contender in the Brimstone Bleed. It's an epic race across jungle, desert, ocean, and mountain that could win her the prize she desperately desires: the Cure for her brother's illness. But all the Contenders are after the Cure for people they love, and there's no guarantee that Tella (or any of them) will survive the race.
The jungle is terrifying, the clock is ticking, and Tella knows she can't trust the allies she makes. And one big question emerges: Why have so many fallen sick in the first place?
Victoria Scott's breathtaking novel grabs readers by the throat and doesn't let go.

From the critics
Sexual Content: Inappropriate touching, including kissing and handling of private parts. Also indications of sex, as in, "So, you gonna do it?" (which by the way they don't). Tella and Guy sleep together once or twice.
Violence: Nothing seriously gory. One guy's head is held under quicksand until he dies. Guy threatens to "end" somebody. Pandoras attack contestants by the orders of their owners.
