When Fiona wakes up and looks in the mirror she is years older than she remembers being. It seems as if she has aged a few years over night. As she looks around, her house appears to have been abandoned for years. Her mother and father are gone. And her brother, unrecognizable at first, appears to want to attack and kill her. Fiona also has a strange tattoo on her right hand.
What does the tattoo mean and why are people so afraid of her when they see it? What does it mean to be a level 10 and so dangerous that she must be handcuffed and guarded 24 hours a day?
Stung is tense, very scary, and not-to-be-missed if you are a dystopian novel fan. It has everything: romance, adventure, and most importantly, makes the reader think about what may happen when man's interference (although well intentioned) goes too far.
This is the second book I've read in a row that may be too intense for some middle school readers - so be warned!
