Stung by Bethany Wiggins

Stung

Synopsis

There is no cure for being stung.

Fiona doesn’t remember going to sleep. But when she opens her eyes, she discovers her entire world has been altered—her house is abandoned and broken, and the entire neighborhood is barren and dead. Even stranger is the tattoo on her right hand—a black oval with five marks on either side—that she doesn’t remember getting but somehow knows she must cover at any cost. She’s right.

Those bearing the tattoo have turned into mindless, violent beasts that roam the streets and sewers, preying upon the unbranded while a select few live protected inside a fortress-like wall, their lives devoted to rebuilding society and killing all who bear the mark.

Now Fiona has awakened branded, alone—and on the wrong side of the wall.
Hardcover, 304 pages
Expected publication: April 2nd 2013 by Walker Childrens
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

My Review

I couldn't imagine waking up and everything and one you knew was gone. This is what happened to Fiona. Not only is her family gone, but even the outside world is different.

If it hadn't have been for working and planning my son's curriculum I would have not put this book down from the time I started it until I finished it! It is a really great book! Stung is the first book I read by Bethany Wiggins, and I was not disappointed one bit. The plot was awesome, and it had just the right amount of action and most importantly no love triangle! Stung is something you could see happening to our world one day. If you like YA and/or dystopian, read Stung!


Interesting Topics

I had posted this review on my other blog a few months ago. Today I received an e-mail from Discovery with an article called "How Killer Bees Kill". It made me think of Stung by Bethany Wiggins.
