Overview

There were no charges. There was no trial. There will be no escape.

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 perfect twin.

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, summer blockbuster by James Patterson, the #1 bestselling author of Maximum Ride, Witch and Wizard, and Middle School, The Worst Years of My Life.

Setting
Some time in the future, there are no cities, there are cells. Each cell is monitored and controlled.
Characters
Rebecca and Cassie are twins. Very different personalities. Their mom has been taken for a 'mood adjust' and their father is in the hospital after attempting suicide. No one is there for them.
The Provost is their leader. He controls EVERYTHING. In order for a couple to have a child, someone needs to be assisted in suicide. All occupations are pre-assigned.
When Becca goes missing, Cassie discovers that there is more going on than she was aware of.
Good Points
Excellent Book! Never a dull moment.
Cassie is the 'good' girl and Becca is the 'tough' girl. As sisters, they look out for each other.
Cassie tries to find Becca and discovers she can be a 'tough' girl, too.
Plot Summary
When Becca is taken, she ends up in the prison. As soon as she arrives, she is sent to 'the ring' to fight. She is badly beaten by a boy. Very little food or sleep, she is made tougher than she thought possible. There are executions, starvation, and beatings every day.
When Cassie tries to find her, she ends up there also.
Can they survive? Cassie has always been the perfect student, a rule follower and she is completely out of her element.
Ending
The ending was amazing!
