Overview
A pulse-pounding thrill ride, where a teen girl must participate in a breathtaking race to save her brother's life--and her own.
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 is dying--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.

Tella Holloway’s older brother is dying, and if anyone knows why, they’re not saying. In the desperate hope that fresh air and quiet will help him, Tella’s parents have left Boston for an isolated Montana farmhouse: no neighbors, no school, no electronic devices. Suffice it to say, Tella is going nuts. The mysterious delivery of an earpiece—which her father tries and fails to destroy—offers Tella escape and hope. Its message is that if she can make it to a rendezvous point in Nebraska, she can compete for the chance to cure her brother. Scott (the Dante Walker trilogy) isn’t hiding her influences—this novel reads like a mashup of The Hunger Games and The Amazing Race. But Scott holds her own in attitude and taut action, and Tella’s voice is feminine, smart, and sassy. Importantly, although male-female chemistry is definitely present, the emotional drive of the novel doesn’t rely on romance. Family, camaraderie, and Tella’s bond with her furry Pandora companion matter just as much in getting her through the first part of her life-and-death race. Ages 12–up. (Mar.)
