Solitary by Alexander Gordon Smith *****

There's heaven, there's hell, and then there's the Furnace.

Solitary is the sequel to Lockdown, a thrilling novel for scare enthusiasts that takes place in a prison. Solitary begins right when Alex, Zee, and Gary jump in the river, and then the book takes off. From the warden to the rats, this is a series you don't want to miss.

This book is so good that I finished it in 2 hours. I loved this book because there was always something new that happened whenever something else got old. For example, tired of reading about kids trapped in a pit? Then wait until a mutation rescues them. This is definitely dystopian sci fi, but so much different from Hunger Games because as futuristic as we may want it to be, it could be happening right under our feet--literally.
