'My name is Alex and I'm not a killer. They framed me . . .I've got to break out. Before they turn me into a monster.' Action-adventure meets heart-pounding horror in this addictive prison break-out story.
Originally published: London: Faber, 2009.
Furnace is the world's most secure prison for young offenders, buried a mile beneath the earth's surface. Convicted of a murder he didn't commit, Alex knows he has two choices - find a way out or resign himself to death behind bars. With the help of his fellow inmates Alex plans the ultimate prison break, but his mission becomes even more dangerous as he discovers the darker secrets of this nightmare that's hidden from the rest of the world. Suggested level: intermediate, secondary.
