Lockdown by Alexander Gordon Smith

Smith Gordon, Alexander Lockdown: Escape from Furnace, pgs 273. Faber and Faber Limited, 2009. Language PG-13 (Lots of scattered swearing a-word b-word, and d-word.); Sexual Content G; Violence PG-13. I really liked this book. It takes place in England and this kid, Alex, he is a thief and gets blamed for a friend's murder so he gets sent to an underground prison called The Furnace. He meets a kid there called Donovan and he teaches Alex how to survive down there and together with a kid called Zee, they try to figure out how to get out of there. I really enjoyed this book it was interesting to read how they tried to get out of an inescapable prison. It was very intriguing how they described Furnace, I wouldn't like to go there. I recommend this to kids who like horror books. MS, HS-ADVISABLE Student Reviewer: JL
