Benson Fisher thought that a scholarship to Maxfield Academy would be the ticket out of his dead-end life.

He was wrong.

Now he's trapped in a school that's surrounded by a razor-wire fence, where video cameras monitor his every move—and where breaking the rules equals death.

All Benson wants is to find a way out. But when he stumbles upon the real secret the school has been hiding, he realizes that escape may be impossible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My New Favorite I took this book out from my school library and after reading went and bought it for myself! That's how good it was! I needed to have my own copy. This book is gripping, fast-paced and has a writing style I love. The story has lot's of twists that you hooked until the very last page... I have read many books and I would still call this one my overall favorite.

“Filled with heart-racing action and suspense. An impressive debut with wide appeal, especially for fans of Alexander Gordon Smith’s Lockdown and James Dashner’s The Maze Runner.”
