Variant by Robison Wells is a science fiction novel for teenagers.
Benson Fisher is a 17yr old boy who applies to a school called Maxfield Academy. When he arrives he finds out it wasn't what he thought it would be.
I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this novel to audiences 11+. It is quite scary in parts.
This book is amazing. If you pick up this book it's terribly hard to put down. Robison is an amazing author. He makes you feel like you are there.

When Wendy Everly was six years old, her mother was convinced that she was a monster and tried to kill her. Eleven years later, Wendy discovers that her mother may have been right. She's not the person she's always believed herself to be, and her whole life begins to unravel all because of Finn Holmes.
Finn is a mysterious guy who always seems to be watching her. Every encounter leaves her deeply shaken...though it has more to do with her fierce attraction to him than she'd ever admit. But it isn't long before he reveals the truth: Wendy Everly is a changeling who was switched at birth- and he's come to take her home.
Now Wendy's about to journey to a magical world she never knew existed, one that's both beautiful and frightening. And where she must leave her old life behind to discover who she's meant to become.
I personally really enjoyed reading this book. I could hardly put it down and found myself reading page after page after page. This was an awesome start to the series and I can't wait to read more...I recommend this book for year 10 and up. Look out for this book. I am sure you will love it!

I have recently read Maus: A Survivors Tale, a graphic novel based on a true story of a young Jewish man during WW2. This book captivated me from beginning to end and was amazingly eye-opening about how Jews, Poles, Americans and Germans took part in a never forgotten war. The creativity of the author (Art Spiegelman) stuck out in this book as all the human characters were drawn as animals. This book was filled with heartbreak, horror, love and sadness. I recommend this book to anyone.
