Publisher's Summary

There were no charges. There was no trial. There will be no escape.

Seventeen-year-old Becca Greenfield was snatched from her small hometown. She was thrown into a maximum-security prison and put on Death Row with other kids her age. Until her execution, Becca's told to fit in and shut her mouth...but Becca's never been very good at either. Her sister, Cassie, was always the perfect twin.

Becca's only hope is that her twin sister will find her. That perfect little priss Cassie will stop following the rules and start breaking them before it's too late. Because her jailers made a mistake that could get them both killed:

They took the wrong twin.

Critic Reviews

"Action-packed fight scenes, flickers of romance, and Patterson's signature speedy chapters should satisfy teens who like their suspense served with a side of political revolt." ( Booklist)

Patterson or Steven King ?

This was not what I expected from J Patterson. Not does the review describe the book. This is a story about a cult population where everything in their lives is controlled. From education, career, when to become pregnant to when and how to die. They do not know any other lifestyle exists. But when the children began to disappear, no one bothers to ask why or where they go. The children are taken to a former prison and put on death row. Forced to live in squalor, fight each other like heavy weight boxers, spend hours on education, and exercise used as brutal punishment. And just when it can't get worse, they are forced to watch each other be executed with no reason given. It's was not a pleasant listen for me and this I didn't finish.

Patterson needs to stick to the genre for which he is known. This book is way outside his area of experience. And it is apparent again and again in this latest book. I really wonder if he is just selling his name and letting anyone who has the bucks stick it on their novels. Disappointed.

Not up to James Patterson's standards.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Nothing. I wouldn't have purchased it if I'd known it is "young adult" and young girl oriented.

What could James Patterson and Gabrielle Charbonnet have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Take James Patterson's name off! Very disappointed.

Would you be willing to try another one of Therese Plummer’s performances?

Not if it "YA".

Any additional comments?

Waste of time and money. Violent.

So bad.

I don't know which I disliked more, the story or the narrator. It was so hard to get through, so juvenile and corny, and went nowhere. If I could go back in time and save myself from one mistake in my life, it would be downloading this book.

Meant for kids or challenged adults

Should have been a warning. Will think twice before ordering any more Patterson books. Either he is getting stale or his ghost writer has a problem

Disappointing at best

Not a book I would recommend. Weak by comparison to other Paterson stories. Disappointed. It went nowhere at the end.

It was ok.

It wasn't one of my favorites but kept my interest. I only stayed interested because of the children. Found myself saying "OMG, THESE ARE CHILDREN FOR GOD'S SAKE!!" most of the story. I DEFINITELY would NOT compare it to The Hunger Games AT ALL. It wasn't THAT good. But it was good. Twists & turns towards the end. Not my favorite but I'll check out the sequel, "The Fall of the Crazy House". Unfortunately, it is NOT available through Audiobooks. Narrator was alright. January is still my favorite narrator.

No sense

Good writing until suddenly the story took s turn that makes no sense. No way to fix it after that. It’s too bad, because it had such great potential.
