Framed for murder, Alex and his friends try to escape from a prison called the Furnace in Solitary/Escape from Furnace 2. They are discovered by the warden and sent back to jail. Instead of their regular cells, they are put into a separate part of prison called solitary. Solitary is literally a locked up hole in the ground. While placed in it, Alex is haunted by the bad things he has done in his life. Days later, a kid that is mutating into a monster, opens up Alex’s cells and tells him and his friends about another way to escape the Furnace. This gets the boys excited. Will they all make it out alive?
This book was very good. It’s not a long read, but it is full of action. “Solitary: Escape From Furnace” was scary and exciting, which is why I liked it. The action could be pretty intense, so I don’t recommend this book for kids under 10. If you are over that age, than you should definitely get this book; it’s that good!
