Alex Sawyer is in the hole after his attempt at escaping the Furnace failed. Getting help from the discarded experiments, he is still looking for a way out. Won't say much more, because it will give away too much.
Incredible scifi/fantasy read. Cannot wait to start sequel!
Alex, a thief, watches as brutal men in black kill his best friend. He is framed for the murder, and sent to the Furnace, and prison set up to house brutal kids and teens after the summer of slaughter.Very intense read.
Elise's mother died on the day she was born, and her father followed when she was three. She lives with her aunt and uncle, and comes from a happy home, but suddenly she feels out of sort with the person she has become, and even more out of sorts with her best friend, Franklin. She struggles through life, trying to figure out how to deal with her own personal bully while trying to decipher the puzzle her father left for her. Beautiful book.
LOVED this book! Doug is a doughy 15-year-old who is turned into a vampire. He cannot help but dread the eternal life lived as an awkward, overweight boy hoping to find love as he begins his training. Gotta say though, didn't care at all for the ending, though the humor definitely made it a worthwhile read.
