THE WINNER'S CURSE
New York : Farrer Straus Giroux, 2014
||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
