9780385391535: 5 to 1

Part Homeless Bird and part Matched, this is a dark look at the near future told through the alternating perspectives of two teens who dare to challenge the system.

In the year 2054, after decades of gender selection, India now has a ratio of five boys for every girl, making women an incredibly valuable commodity. Tired of marrying off their daughters to the highest bidder and determined to finally make marriage fair, the women who form the country of Koyanagar have instituted a series of tests so that every boy has the chance to win a wife.

Sudasa, though, doesn't want to be a wife, and Five, a boy forced to compete in the test to become her husband, has other plans as well. As the tests advance, Sudasa and Five thwart each other at every turn until they slowly realize that they just might want the same thing.

This beautiful, unique novel is told from alternating points of view--Sudasa's in verse and Five's in prose--allowing readers to experience both characters' pain and their brave struggle for hope.

From the Back Cover:

I'm brought to the stage:a golden statue,paradedin front of hungry hands.
I keep my ownwrapped aroundthe bag of rocksI must give as rewards.
Five for first place.Two for second.One for third.
They're supposed to symbolize the winner's abilityto build a wall of his own.
A wall aroundhis guarantee.His life.I mean, wife.

About the Author:

Holly Bodger wrote her first book at the age of six. Although the two-page novel about a mouse had a somewhat limited print run of one, the critical acclaim received from her stuffed animals convinced Holly to get an English degree and then, later, to write this book, her debut, which has considerably more than two pages. Holly lives in Ottawa, Canada, with her family and a motley crew of both real and stuffed animals.
