As per Goodreads:
Lauren Oliver confirmed that this stand-alone novel will fit into the genre of realistic fiction. It tells the story of a small Upstate New York town where the teens play a very dangerous game every summer.
A “stand-alone” book? In the YA genre? By someone who’s already had an extremely successful trilogy with FOUR bridges?
It will be a hit and then the publishers will be all
And I am TOTALLY alright with that.
