Product description

Fancy being the Grim Reaper? In a future without war or sickness, someone has to do it. Right? Citra and Rowan live in a world with no disease, war and crime. Perfect! There’s nothing left to die of. That leaves just one teensy problem: surplus. Which is where the scythes come in. State-appointed assassins, they randomly kill – or ‘glean’ – their victims to keep the population down. So, who’d want a job like that? Definitely not Citra or Rowan. Trouble is, they’ve been picked out to learn the last trade they’d ever choose. Now they must master the art of death. The good news: only one of them can win the role. The bad news: the winner’s first job will be to kill the loser…

  • Superbly dark and disturbing stuff for fans of The Hunger Games
  • A Printz Honor winner kicking off a chilling new dystopian series
  • Thought-provoking message that a perfect world comes at a heavy price
  • By the New York Times bestselling author of the Unwind series

“Elegant and elegiac, brooding but imbued with gallows humor, Shusterman’s dark tale thrusts realistic, likeable teens into a surreal situation and raises deep philosophic questions. A thoughtful and thrilling story of life, death, and meaning.” Kirkus

“A truly astounding, unputdownable read and a fast-paced beginning to an excellent sci-fi series. A must-have.” School Library Journal
