Cell 7 – Kerry Drewery ★★★★★

Blurb; Should she live or die? You decide

An adored celebrity has been killed. Sixteen-year-old Martha Honeydew was found holding a gun, standing over the body.

Now Justice must prevail.

The general public will decide whether Martha is innocent or guilty by viewing daily episodes of the hugely popular TV show Death is Justice, the only TV show that gives the power of life and death decisions – all for the price of a phone call.

Martha has admitted to the crime. But is she guilty? Or is reality sometimes more complicated than the images we are shown on TV?

My Review; This is book one in a young adult trilogy and it was brilliant. I devoured at least 70% of this in one go. It focuses on a new justice system where the viewers and innocent get to decide if the criminals are guilty or not guilty for their crimes by voting for the criminals to be put to death, making it into a game show. A deadly, fun game show. The prisoners have 7 days until their execution and when the votes are in there’s no going back? But what if someone is innocent but still voted guilty you say? Then that’s where it gets tricky but in this story we see exactly that happen. A reversal. A case that makes the viewers rethink the whole new system. I cannot wait to see what happens in book two already. Its an addictive, fast paced read. I really enjoyed it. Highly recommend. A well deserved five stars from me.
