Crazy House - Review

Crazy House
by James Patterson & Gabrielle Charbonnet

What they say: No one gets out alive.

Seventeen-year-old Becca Greenfield was snatched from her home and thrown without reazon into a hellish prison known as the Crazy House. To avoid execution, she’s told to shut her mouth and keep her head down.

Becca was never really good at either.

Her only hope for survival is for her sister, Cassie, to find her—that the “good twin” will stop following the rules and start breaking them, before it’s too late. Because the jailers at Crazy House soon discover they made a mistake that could get bothsisters killed…

I received a copy from the publisher (via NetGalley) in exchange for an honest review!

What I say: I'm a big JP fan but honestly wasn't sure what to expect from a James Patterson and Gabrielle Charbonnet mashup. What I found is a mystery, dystopian, teen drama with a lot of action and some romance thrown into the mix.

In this twisted dystopian world you follow the rules or face the consequences. Becca breaks the rules and finds herself imprisoned in the 'crazy house'. Her twin sister Cassie faces a desperate mission to find and save her.

Cassie's hunt leads her to the rebel group known as the 'outsiders' and of course Nate. On paper Nate is the towns favourite son but in reality he hates everything his controlling father and the corrupt society stands for.

Becca also gets a romantic nod in the story in the form of Tim. Well sort of. I was expecting more to develop here but perhaps next time...

I kept thinking it's only a matter of time before Cassie ends up in the crazy house too. Come on, it's in the title! Does she? Ha! As if I'd tell you that!

The story ends on a cliffy with several unresolved issues so I cannot see how there won't be a sequel. I'm not really sure how I feel about the book as I did find it a difficult read at times but found their story intriguing.

3 Stars in my Sky!
