Kestrel is smart, determined, and competitive! As the general's daughter, she lives in a very elite and lavish society. At seventeen, she has two choices for her future. She can either marry or join forces with her father in the military. Her choices are muddied when she meets Arin. He would appear to be the opposite of Kestrel. As the two interact, they find that they are more alike than not. Being from opposite societies, they fight their feelings for each other. It would be scandalous for the two to be together. Is it a gamble worth taking for Kestrel or Arin? Will the Winner's Curse prevail?   (Prepared by: Anne Sidey, North Augusta Middle School, South Carolina Junior Book Award)
