i was looking for stuff like the hunger games and this was pretty cool not as cool as the hunger games but along the same line

An interesting book. Tella enters a competition to win the cure for her brother. This feels like the Hunger Games but Tella is less of a Katniss than I would hope. She seems helpless more often than she feels capable. Still, the writing was interesting and kept me turning the pages.

Hmmm……..Woah! All of a sudden I remembered exactly where I read this before! I'm pretty sure it was this über popular YA series called….The Hunger Games. Oh, there was also a tad bit of this popular reality TV series called The Amazing Race. I love that show, but it's best left a show. So on my actual review, I made this chart. And on this chart, I listed what Fire & Flood took from The Hunger Games. I came up with a lot of stuff.
1. Tella enters this race (I swear I forgot the name of the race every other minute) to SAVE HER BROTHER. I think I might've heard this before. 2. At the beginning of the race, each contestant gets a serpent pin. Okay, it's not a bird, but very similar. 3. Even the words spoken to the contestants are so similar. THG: "May the odds ever be in your favor." F&F: "May the best contestant win." These are only a few of the things I found, but there are many more. And then some of the similarities between The Amazing Race and Fire & FLood. 1. The clues. Instead of searching for clues, contestants are basically lazybums who get a device that tells them what to do. Not recommended. This is a pitiful attempt at a book. I'm not trying to trash it, but this book deserves it. How this could get published, I have no idea. At the end of all this, I have one message: The Hunger Games were here first. Stop being a copycat.

Sexual Content: Inappropriate touching, including kissing and handling of private parts. Also indications of sex, as in, "So, you gonna do it?" (which by the way they don't). Tella and Guy sleep together once or twice.

Violence: Nothing seriously gory. One guy's head is held under quicksand until he dies. Guy threatens to "end" somebody. Pandoras attack contestants by the orders of their owners.
