In the book, Skin Hunger, by Kathleen Duey, a boy from a wealthy family is forced to leave home because of his fathers hatred and wants for him to be gone from his life. Hahp, the boy, doesn't provide any goodness for his father, so his father has no use for him. After sending Hahp to many schools, his father finds a school of wizardry, where the parents were told that they may not even see their sons again in the modern world. Hahp has to survive harsh treatment by the wizards hands, and almost starves to death because of no food. "Out of the 10 boys who enrolled, only one will survive," were the words of the head wizard. Hahp is forced to make tough decisions throughout this fiction story, in the fight to be the one that will graduate. I recommend this book to people who like adventure and action, and for fantasy-lovers. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, and hope to read the next one soon!
