She wants it. She wants it so bad. More than anything in the world. She would kill for it.
He wants it. He wants it more than her. What they want, though, are two things unimaginably different. He would kill to give it to her. 
They don't know each other very well, but, then, these two people are the warring personification of the current ideas of their Earth. In a world where they offer riches and a full life for the family of anyone who competes in the game, there are some who merely join to destroy all the government has worked for. The only question is whether they are finally right. 
When the last five have finally won and the government is beginning their expedition, the strange blonde boy that always seems to be there has the chance to decide if his young sister's broken mind could dislocate the dwindling thread that houses poverty, death, and the frequent obsession with staying alive.

@ihateusernames Sorry, I shall do so soon!
                              
                              Yeah, I probably should...I just always forget. How do people find such cool covers, though?
                              
                              AND CARLY. Don't say that, you're far more awesome.
