As in Rush (Katherine Tegen, 2013) and Push (Katherine Tegen, 2014/VOYA June 2014) before, Miki and her team continue the battle against terrifying and beautiful alien creatures known as the Drau in book three of The Game trilogy. Miki's carefully controlled life is disrupted each time she is pulled through time and space into the game, in which she and the other teens are sent on dangerous missions by the mysterious committee. Now, Miki's father and best friend lay critically injured in the hospital. Her boyfriend's dead sister is trying to communicate with her in the game. The Drau she believed were evil may also be trying to communicate with Miki, shattering the lies she has been fed since being forced into the game.

If readers are still calling for dystopian fiction, here is a fast-paced adventure for science fiction and gaming fans. Crash has all the elements of another teen blockbuster--a strong female protagonist with minor, relatable flaws; a simmering romance; an evil government committee; and a secret resistance society. Fans of Rick Yancey's The 5th Wave series will devour Crash. It is part of The Game trilogy, so purchase as a set so readers can start at the beginning.--Ann McDuffie.
