This was not what I expected from J Patterson. Not does the review describe the book. This is a story about a cult population where everything in their lives is controlled. From education, career, when to become pregnant to when and how to die. They do not know any other lifestyle exists. But when the children began to disappear, no one bothers to ask why or where they go. The children are taken to a former prison and put on death row. Forced to live in squalor, fight each other like heavy weight boxers, spend hours on education, and exercise used as brutal punishment. And just when it can't get worse, they are forced to watch each other be executed with no reason given. It's was not a pleasant listen for me and this I didn't finish.
Patterson needs to stick to the genre for which he is known. This book is way outside his area of experience. And it is apparent again and again in this latest book. I really wonder if he is just selling his name and letting anyone who has the bucks stick it on their novels. Disappointed.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
Nothing. I wouldn't have purchased it if I'd known it is "young adult" and young girl oriented.
What could James Patterson and Gabrielle Charbonnet have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Take James Patterson's name off! Very disappointed.
Would you be willing to try another one of Therese Plummer’s performances?
Not if it "YA".
Any additional comments?
Waste of time and money. Violent.
