Caraval by Stephanie Garber
“Welcome to Caraval! Inside you’ll experience more wonders than most people see in a lifetime. But before you fully enter into our world, you must remember it’s all a game. What happens beyond the gate may frighten or excite you, but don’t let any of it trick you. We will try to convince you it is real, but all of it is a performance. So while we want you to get swept away, be careful of being swept too far away.” So Scarlett is warned before she enters the magical world of Caraval where she has limited time to rescue her kidnapped sister, AVOID falling in love, and figure out her mysterious family history. This game is more dangerous than it appears, and Scarlett also must worry about her cruel father and a mysterious fiancé she has never met. (First in a series)
