Congratulations to author Sara Grant who’s novel, Dark Parties has come out on top as the winner for the 6th Annual BSC Book Tournament!
We started the contest out with 32 entries into the March Madness style competition. We called this years tournament “A Taste of the Hunger Games” given that all the novels were ones that fans of the Hunger Games trilogy would enjoy. Each novel in the tournament took a look at dystopian futures.
After weeks of voting by our readers, Dark Parties has come out as the winner of it all.
Dark Parties follows Sixteen-year-old Neva who has been trapped since birth. She was born and raised under the Protectosphere, in an isolated nation ruled by fear, lies, and xenophobia. A shield “protects” them from the outside world, but also locks the citizens inside. But according to the government, there’s nothing left on the outside, ever since the world collapsed from violent warfare. Neva and her best friend Sanna believe the government is lying and stage a “dark party” to recruit members for their underground rebellion. But as Neva begins to uncover the truth, she realizes she must question everything she’s ever known, including the people she loves the most.
Grant’s dystopian novel has caught the attention and love of readers all over the world making it this year’s winner!
I would also like to thank everyone who participated in the tournament this year as well. They were truly all fabulous books. You can see the list of novels included in this years tournament here.
