Variant coverVariant is about a teen named Benson Fisher, who is enrolled in a school where there are no adults, internet, telephones, communication with the outside world, and ultimately, no escape. However, escape is Benson's only option for himself, even though no one has ever escaped before without vanishing or being killed. Benson is trying to figure a way out, as well as who he can and cannot trust.

Variant is an extremely interesting book because there are twist and turns at every chapter that make you want to reach the end. I literally read the novel in one night. As soon as you think the book might start to get boring, something pops up that is beyond your imagination.

If you like science fiction, survival, or coming of age genres, I would recommend Variant because of its action-packed, fast-paced content.
