The Unwanteds By Lisa McMann In the land of Quil being creative is a crime. Every year Quil has a purge for the children of the age 13.
This year twins Alex and Aaron are being purged.
If you are sorted into Wanted you go to the university to get a high-rank job. Necessaries do the hard work like building and manning the fields. Unwanteds are sentenced to death in a pool of burning oil at a mansion behind a gate so that no one escapes.
Alex became an Unwanted. Aaron was a Wanted. Alex was sent to die with the other Unwanteds.
But when Alex and his friend Megan who was also an Unwanted discover they aren't going to die along with the other Unwanteds they become relieved and are thankful to the man who saved them, Marcus Today. Now they are trained in magic using creativity.
What will happen with Alex and Aaron? Will they ever see each other again? Find out by reading The Unwanteds by Lisa McMann.
