My Thoughts/Review
This book was really good. I can't believe how suspenseful and thrilling this book was. The simple premise of this book made it a great read that had me on the edge of my seat. The main character made you feel for him and you wanted him to be successful and okay in the end. You didn't want him to get hurt, you wanted him to survive. Think about how scary and horrifying it would be to be locked in a school with no way out with someone trying to kill you. That is really terrifying. You just have to read the book to see what happens in the end. The mystery aspect of this book, the who dune it, was so good. I was shocked at the end of this book and that is one of the reasons why I liked reading it. The twists and turns were edge of your seat suspenseful, that I didn't even know what was coming next. The fighting scenes, and there were alot of them, were really good. You never knew if Aaron, the main character, would get out of them alive. If you want a good suspenseful, edge of your seat, terrifying, quick read, I definitely suggest reading this book. It was really a good read. Overall I give this book a 4 out of 5 stars. I can't wait for the movie to come out. =]
