Publisher's Summary

You can be a VII if you give everything.
For Kitty Doe, it seems like an easy choice. She can either spend her life as a III in misery, looked down upon by the higher ranks and forced to leave the people she loves, or she can become a VII and join the most powerful family in the country.
If she says yes, Kitty will be Masked - surgically transformed into Lila Hart, the Prime Minister's niece, who died under mysterious circumstances. As a member of the Hart family, she will be famous. She will be adored. And for the first time, she will matter.
There's only one catch. She must also stop the rebellion that Lila secretly fostered, the same one that got her killed...and one Kitty believes in. Faced with threats, conspiracies and a life that's not her own, she must decide which path to choose - and learn how to become more than a pawn in a twisted game she's only beginning to understand.

Surprisingly addictive

What made the experience of listening to Pawn the most enjoyable?

The narrator did a wonderful job bringing the story to life. A well written, unique take on the dystopian young adult genre.

What other book might you compare Pawn to and why?

The book can and surely will be compared to Hunger Games. The heroine has the strength we all admire in Katniss--the two share the impoverished background and lack of control in regards to the situations they end up facing.

What does Lameece Issaq bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Lameece did a fantastic job differentiating the characters--breathing accurate personality into the dialogue. Simply outstanding.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

A pawn becomes a Queen.

Any additional comments?

Well worth the listen/read. I highly recommend.

don't have to pay attention while commuting

Is there anything you would change about this book?

It's a young adult read that doesn't transition enough into being enjoyable for adults too. The issues are a bit too simplistic. I'd try to enrich the subplots, but then it would lose its place in its genre. So, leave the book as it, it just wasn't right for me.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

It was good as it was actually. I'd have psychoanalyzed the cast a bit more. More followthrough.

Which character – as performed by Lameece Issaq – was your favorite?

Can't recall. Enjoyed the reading overall though.

Did Pawn inspire you to do anything?

Pawn put me in mind of Hunger Games, wherein you can rebuild a lot about a person's externals.

Any additional comments?

Good book for listening to but not giving your full attention to. So like, while driving, doing errands, etc.
