Shawshank Redemption meets [b:Maze Runner|6186357|The Maze Runner (Maze Runner, #1)|James Dashner|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1308971563s/6186357.jpg|6366642] in this excellent futuristic series. It's on the young end of the young adult category (as made apparent by the mahoosive font) but still incredibly enjoyable.Our protagonist, Alex, is highly likeable. As are all of his friends. It's a great story about kids trying to escape prison and all of the terrifying things they discover there. Not joking - the wheezers are horrifying.Was impressed. Was entertained. Was scared sometimes. Will read the next one.
