“The only thing better than a terrific concept is one that is as well executed as Starters. Readers who have been waiting for a worthy successor to Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games will find it here. Dystopian sci-fi at its best, Starters is a terrific series kickoff with a didn’t-see-that-coming conclusion that will leave readers on the edges of their seats” – Los Angeles Times

“STARTERS is a smart, swift, inventive, altogether gripping story. Callie Woodland, the narrator, deserves a series, and happily I am sure she’ll get one!”—Dean Koontz

STARTERS is one of ten “Best of the Year for Teens” from Amazon, a YALSA nominee for Best Fiction for Young Adults 2012, and a Barnes & Noble Pick of the Month for Teens (March).


Lissa Price’s world changed in March 2012 when Random House Children’s Books published STARTERS, book one in a YA futuristic thriller duology. Already an International Bestseller, it is being published in over thirty countries. The book trailer played in front of The Hunger Games film in selected cities in the US, the UK and the Philippines.
