Book Blast/Giveaway : Rush by Eve Silver

Date: June 11, 2013
Harper Teen

from Goodreads:
So what’s the game now? This, or the life I used to

When Miki Jones is pulled from her life, pulled through time and space into
some kind of game—her carefully controlled life spirals into chaos. In the
game, she and a team of other teens are sent on missions to eliminate the Drau,
terrifying and beautiful alien creatures. There are no practice runs, no
training, and no way out. Miki has only the guidance of secretive but
maddeningly attractive team leader Jackson Tate, who says the game isn’t really
a game, that what Miki and her new teammates do now determines their survival,
and the survival of every other person on this planet. She laughs. He doesn’t.
And then the game takes a deadly and terrifying turn.

first open their eyes.”

have the feeling he’s not looking at me anymore, that he’s scanning the area,
looking for…something. But as I stare at him, I see me—tiny distorted reflections of me in the shiny, convex
