Alenna, the main character in Lisa M. Stasse’s novel The Forsaken, has been exiled to The Wheel after a government-mandated personality test determined that she has “a high capacity for rebellious behavior and brutal violence.” Inspired by The Forsaken, we challenged you to write a story about someone who committed a crime, someone accused of a crime they didn’t commit, or someone in prison.
You wrote and voted, and now we are pleased to announce the finalists of The Forsaken contest. Lisa M. Stasse will be choosing the winners, so cross your fingers for your fellow figs!
First prize winner will get a signed copy of The Forsaken by Lisa M. Stasse, Changeling (with a signed bookplate!) by Philippa Gregory, Advanced Reader Copies of Tilt by Ellen Hopkins and 34 Pieces of You by Carmen Rodrigues, and a copy of Blood Red Road by Moira Young.
Second prize winner will get a signed copy of The Forsaken by Lisa M. Stasse, Changeling (with a signed bookplate!) by Philippa Gregory, an Advanced Reader Copy of The Blessed by Tonya Hurley, and a copy of This Dark Endeavor by Kenneth Oppel.
