If You Like Cara McKenna Books, You’ll Love…

Cara McKenna Synopsis: In Skin Game by Cara McKenna, there’s seven days, seven challenges, twelve strangers and eight thousand cameras, but only one winner. It is The Ant Farm, a social study in the wilds of interior Alaska, documenting the dynamics between a dozen competitors as they take part in a series of physical and psychological face-offs. With $5,000 prize at the end of the battle royal, the stakes are high and the tension blazing. Could the seemingly mild-mannered nice guy win it all? The cutthroat alpha female? The strongest or the smartest, the idealist or the cynic? It’s anyone’s guess as teams are undercut by alliances, loyalties are put to the test, and passions inflamed by both affection and animosity. In this contest where even knives and guns are fair game, sex may end up being the most dangerous weapon of all.
