    Unlike any other book

    I wasn`t expecting such a great book from a debut writer but as it turns out it was absolutely brilliant and hopefully the first of many exciting books by Robinson.

    I don`t usually like crime novels but this was not just a crime it was a no-crime novel as it was about normal teenagers who have not commited crimes but still have been sent to an isolated prison in the middle of nowhere.

    My favourite scene was when Elsa discovered the paperwork describing the meaning of `The Ability` a power which is created when a group of teenagers are in a confined space together. I enjoyed this scene because it was when I first time I realised why they were there as I had many theories going through my head.

    My favourite character was Elsa as she was the youngest at the prison but compared to the other inmates she managed to not get panicked about the situation they were in. Although she was scared to climb into the ventilation system she still did it for her friends.

    I rate this book 9/10, it was a cliffhanger book, the last two chapters were packed with adventure and I found that the plot of the story is unlike any other book I have ever read. There is going to be 2 other books as well which I predict to be a best- seller; the next Hunger Games. Stay tuned for the `Where Trilogy!`
