Book Trailer: Forsaken by Lisa M. Stasse

The author, Lisa M. Stasse shared this trailer with me, and I decided to share it with my readers. 
What is Forsaken?

The Forsaken (The Forsaken, #1)
Title: Forsaken
Author: Lisa M. Stasse
Series: The Forsaken #1
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
Publication Date: July 10, 2012

A thought-provoking and exciting start to a riveting new dystopian trilogy.
As an obedient orphan of the U.N.A. (the super-country that was once Mexico, the U.S., and Canada), Alenna learned at an early age to blend in and be quiet—having your parents taken by the police will do that to a girl. But Alenna can’t help but stand out when she fails a test that all sixteen-year-olds have to take: The test says she has a high capacity for brutal violence, and so she is sent to The Wheel, an island where all would-be criminals end up.
The life expectancy of prisoners on The Wheel is just two years, but with dirty, violent, and chaotic conditions, the time seems a lot longer as Alenna is forced to deal with civil wars for land ownership and machines that snatch kids out of their makeshift homes. Desperate, she and the other prisoners concoct a potentially fatal plan to flee the island. Survival may seem impossible, but Alenna is determined to achieve it anyway.

I think the trailer is well done!
Thank you to Lisa for sharing it with me!
