Two twins face a world of Death Row and dystopia in James Patterson's gripping thriller-perfect for fans of The Hunger Games.
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 good twin.
There were no charges. There was no trial. There will be no escape. 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.
Crazy House is a non-stop thrill ride from James Patterson, the #1 bestselling author of Maximum Ride, Witch and Wizard, and Confessions of a Murder Suspect.
Crazy House is a thrilling young adult book told in the perspectives of Cassie, Becca, Ms. Strepp, and Nathaniel.
Crazy House takes place in a world where teenagers are taken and imprisoned and forced to fight for their survival. The world of Crazy House is divided into cells and depending on what class you are dictates where you live and the Provost who is ruled by the governement dictates what happens. Teenangers go missing daily and no one seems overly concerned about this but Cassie is determined to find out what happened and where did Becca go to.
Cassie’s and Becca never had and easy life. The Provost took their mother a few years ago for “mood adjustment” and were told she would be back soon but she never returned. Their consumed with loneliness decided that he would kill himself but now he is in a hospital comatose waiting for death to take him. The SAS (system assisted suicide) has approached the girls numerous times to allow their father to go but the girls have refused.
Cassie wakes up one more to discover Becca is missing. She is determined to find her. Cassie is frantic at first because she doesn’t want her sister to get into trouble but when she questions her friends only one says that they spotted her crossing the boundry which is strickly forbidden and against the law.
Before Cassie realizes it she is expelled from school and labelled a bad citizen. Once again she is approached by SAS. Once you are labelled a bad citizen you are cut off from everything and that means her father’s care as well.
Mean while with Becca she has actually been kidnapped and put into a maximum security death row prison. This is not your typical death row prison because its housed with teenagers and everyone entering the prison is put to crueling test on various subjects and are trained to fight each other. The winners move on and the losers are killed.
Its during this process that the Ms. Strepp from the prison discovers they have taken the wrong sister and set out to make it right. What will happen when Ms, Strepp is determined to make it right? Can Cassie remain out of the prison or is she willing to risk it all for her sister?
I really enjoyed reading this and I was literally finished this within three days. The ending left off like there could be another book and if there is I would definitely read it.
The sequel The Fall of Crazy House is coming out April 8th 2019.
The best dystopian series since The Hunger Games just got better.
Escape is just the beginning.
Twin sisters Becca and Cassie barely got out of the Crazy House alive. Now they’re trained, skilled fighters who fear nothing–not even the all-powerful United regime.
Together, the sisters hold the key to defeating the despotic government and freeing the people of the former United States. But to win this war, will the girls have to become the very thing they hate?
In this gripping sequel to James Patterson’s YA blockbuster Crazy House, the world is about to get even crazier.
(I can’t wait to this sequel.)
