Praise For Fugitives: Escape from Furnace 4

“Fresh and ferocious . . . will hook boys with its gritty, unrelenting surprises.” —James Patterson on the Escape from Furnace series

“Furnace is hotter than hell and twice as much fun! Sign me up for a life sentence of Alexander Gordon Smith!” —Darren Shan, author of the Demonata series

“Uniquely horrifying.” —Realms of Fantasy on the Escape from Furnace series

“Gritty action and compelling characters will have reluctant readers enthralled.” —School Library Journal on the Escape from Furnace series

“Breathlessly paced and soaked with blood, mucus, and less savory substances . . . Readers who relish lurid imagery . . . will continue to be riveted and left eager for the next disgust-o-rama episode.” —Booklist on the Escape from Furnace series

“My biggest success story last year was when a student, a 5th year senior, attended a booktalk and couldn't wait to read Lockdown. It was the first book he read all the way through in five years of high school. I was privileged to get the galley from a conference for Solitary and gave it to him. I told him to keep the book--in less than a week he returned it to me in pristine condition and wanted more.” —Librarian, Washington High School , Sioux Falls, SD
