Description

You have two options. You die, or you Qualify.

The year is 2047. An extinction-level asteroid is hurtling toward Earth, and the descendants of ancient Atlantis have returned from the stars in their silver ships to offer humanity help.

But there's a catch.

They can only take a tiny percent of the Earth's population back to the colony planet Atlantis. And in order to be chosen, you must be a teen, you must be bright, talented, and athletic, and you must Qualify.

Sixteen-year-old Gwenevere Lark is determined not only to Qualify but to rescue her entire family.

Because there's a loophole.

If you are good enough to Qualify, you are eligible to compete in the brutal games of the Atlantis Grail, which grants all winners the laurels, high tech luxuries, and full privileges of Atlantis Citizenship. And if you are in the Top Ten, then all your wildest wishes are granted... Such as curing your mother's cancer.

There is only one problem.

Gwen Lark is known as a klutz and a nerd. While she's a hotshot in classics, history, science, and languages, the closest she's come to sports is a backyard pool and a skateboard.

This time she is in over her head, and in for a fight of her life, against impossible odds and world-class competition--including Logan Sangre, the most amazing guy in her school, the one she's been crushing on, and who doesn't seem to know she exists.

Because every other teen on Earth has the same idea.

You Qualify or you die.

    I don't normally like sci-fi/apocalyptic books, but this was amazing. I ended up reading it till 7:30am after starting the night before. Such a good plot line, such a good author. I can barely find the words to describe how good this book was.

    A fast paced story of young Gwen Lark, and her family and new friends, competing to stay alive and ultimately qualify for a place to escape a doomed earth, an epic read with great characters looking forward to the next book with anticipation.
  • Too many stereotypical descriptions

    Very immersive and amazing read. Will definitely have you looking forward to the next instalments. Would've given it five stars if not for the outrageous stereotypical descriptions of every African American/Black character. We don't all say "yo" and "girlfriend" every second. Had me rolling my eyes quite a few times.
  • Immersive!

    The author creates such an immersive environment, you feel like you know the characters and you live the situations with them. I've read the sequels and keep coming back to re-read this to pick up on little nuances. This author doesn't add any details that don't have a purpose at some point in the series!

    This isn't the book I was searching for, but it peaked my interest from the description and feedback. I'm moe than happy. To say it's well written is an understatement. The detailed descriptions meant I was there. Experiencing everything first hand! What a story!! I'd highly recommend this to anyone.
  • Couldn't put it down. Compelling read!
