When Lucas tested positive for the warrior gene—a genetic abnormality believed to predispose humans to violence—he was shipped off to the Bake Shop, an impregnable government facility. There, he underwent a battery of psychological tests aimed at making him crack. Now, labeled safe to return to normal life, he’s ready to put the horrific experience behind him.
Then the van transporting him home is forced off the road by a group of rebels who insist there’s more going on at the facility than anyone knows. To find the truth and save a friend’s brother who’s being held prisoner, Lucas infiltrates the Bake Shop’s inner sanctum. But a power outage leads to a security breach that strands Lucas in the dark . . . with a prison full of potential killers who could snap at any moment.

MAY CONTAIN SPOILER:
This book had my heart both racing and aching!
My favorite character is Carly because she is a truly awesome girl! She is bossy, strong, and kind all rolled into one. She has a special kind of girl power!
My favorite part is when all of the facilities get shut down because no-one needs that kind of evil in the world.
I recommend this book for anyone who likes dystopian novels, break outs and friends.
I give this book 3 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 13 and up.
