Alex Sawyer and his mates should have known there was no way out of Furnace Penitentiary. Their escape attempt only lands them deeper in the guts of this prison for young offenders, and then into solitary confinement. And that's where a whole new struggle begins—a struggle not to let the hellish conditions overwhelm them. Because before another escape attempt is even possible, they must first survive the nightmare that now haunts their endless nights.
4 out of 5 stars. The concept of a maximum security prison with no government oversight is an interesting concept for me since I work for a government agency that oversees this type of thing. But add in the concept that this maximum security prison is for children and it really blows my mind. Looking forward to the next book in the series.
