Lottery by Beth Goobie

Book Description

15-year-old Sally Hanson's school is secretly ruled by a group of students known as the 'Shadow Council'. At the beginning of every school year, the Shadow Council hold The Lottery, an infamous ritual in which a student is chosen to be the year's 'victim' - a person who is shunned by the entire school and forced to obey the Shadow Council's every wish. This year Sally is the Shadow Council's victim - and she is about to face the worst year of her life. Resistance is futile and loyal friends are ignoring her. However, Sally has been hiding a horrifying secret - a secret that threatens to overwhelm her as the betrayal and psychological torture grows.
