Book Trailer Thursday (135)–Pawn by Aimee Carter

Book Trailer Thursday

While on the search today’s book trailer I found this trailer for Aimee Carter’s newest release Pawn. I like the premise for dystopian novel and the trailer works for me, too. I also appreciate the gender neural book cover. If you’ve read it already I’d love to know your thoughts. Is it worth reading and buying for my classroom? I’m already leaning towards reading/buying it since Aimee is a Michigan author, but I’d still love your opinion! 🙂

PawnSummary (From Goodreads):


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.


  1. I read it, and yes, I will be adding it to my classroom libary. It was a bit reminiscent of The Selection to me…sort of. I like Aimee’s books because I think they are written in a way that appeal to kids.

  2. I’ve mentioned this on so many reviews already lol, but I’m really iffy about this one. I saw a few good reviews and I love a good Dystopia so I was initially intrigued, but now I seem to be seeing bad reviews everywhere I go and it’s kind of put me off! Which is a shame, because it DOES sound interesting … but I think it might be one of those that leaves you with that ‘lacking’ feeling.

    If you do check it out though, let me know what you think!

I love comments!
