Crazy House by James Patterson and Gabrielle Charbonnet begins when Cassie can’t find her twin sister Rebecca and is desperately trying to figure out where she is. Meanwhile, Becca is in a prison on death row with other teenagers. The cover states similar to Hunger games, but I feel like it’s a combination of that series plus Unwind by Neal Shusterman and the Program by Suzanne Young. The prison is full of people that fight against the main government. These people are known as Outsiders. The story doesn’t flow and it’s told in spurts and a bit choppy. I give it 4 stars for a different approach to a dystopian concept.
