{Synopsis} – @doctorfusionbebop: Some 17 y. o. chick named Dee Guerrera was just sent to Alcatraz 2.0 for killing her stepsister. So, how long do you think she’ll last?

@morrisdavis72195: I hope she meets justice! She’ll get what’s coming to her! BWAHAHA!

@EltonJohnForevzz: Me? I think Dee’s innocent. And I hope she can survive.

WELCOME TO THE NEAR FUTURE, where good and honest citizens can enjoy watching the executions of society’s most infamous convicted felons, streaming live on The Postman app from the suburbanized prison island Alcatraz 2.0.

When seventeen-year-old Dee Guerrera wakes up in a haze, lying on the ground of a dimly lit warehouse, she realizes she’s about to be the next victim of the app. Knowing hardened criminals are getting a taste of their own medicine in this place is one thing, but Dee refuses to roll over and die for a heinous crime she didn’t commit. Can Dee and her newly formed posse, the Death Row Breakfast Club, prove she’s innocent before she ends up wrongfully murdered for the world to see? Or will The Postman’s cast of executioners kill them off one by one?

{My thoughts} – Dee Guerrera has a hidden past. She has secrets that she’s trying to hold onto. Secrets she’s only told a handful of people. Secrets she’s terrified of sharing.

Dee is convicted and sent to live on Alcatraz 2.0 where she will live an ordinary but not so ordinary life. The objective of Alcatraz 2.0 is to serve justice to all those individuals that had committed heinous crimes. Dee swears from the very beginning that she is innocent and that she doesn’t belong there. When you think about it though, who would admit that they actually belonged in such a horrible place?

This book is filled with twists and turns that are unbelievably interwoven within each other. There is so much faced paced information being thrown at the reader and so much happening that when you get to certain points of the book you start to think, what? No, that can’t be? What is going on? This book was extremely difficult for me to put down. I think it is by far the best book I have read in awhile.

I kind of want to say this book is a cross between The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard. If you have had the pleasure of reading either of those series, I am certain you are going to enjoy this book as much as I did. I am now counting down the days for the second book to be released.

I don’t think you should read this book if you can not handle gory details, some f the description within it’s pages is mind-boggling. However, it is effective in placing the reader within the imagined realm of the story.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
