@doctorfusionbebop: Some 17 y. o. chick named Dee Guerrera was just sent to Alcatraz 2.0 for killing her stepsister. So, how long do you think she'll last?
@morrisdavis72195: I hope she meets justice! She'll get what's coming to her! BWAHAHA!
@EltonJohnForevzz: Me? I think Dee's innocent. And I hope she can survive.
WELCOME TO THE NEAR FUTURE, where good and honest citizens can enjoy watching the executions of society's most infamous convicted felons, streaming live on The Postman app from the suburbanized prison island Alcatraz 2.0.
When seventeen-year-old Dee Guerrera wakes up in a haze, lying on the ground of a dimly lit warehouse, she realizes she's about to be the next victim of the app. Knowing hardened criminals are getting a taste of their own medicine in this place is one thing, but Dee refuses to roll over and die for a heinous crime she didn't commit. Can Dee and her newly formed posse, the Death Row Breakfast Club, prove she's innocent before she ends up wrongfully murdered for the world to see? Or will The Postman's cast of executioners kill them off one by one?
In this biting satire of reality shows and today's U.S. political atmosphere, 17-year-old Dee Guerrera, framed for the murder of her stepsister, is dropped onto a nightmarish island in San Francisco Bay where she must fight for her life against state-sponsored killers. Dee is sentenced to Alcatraz 2.0, a show and attendant app created by an anonymous television mogul that offer "televised capital punishment." After accidentally killing her would-be executioner in self-defense, she becomes an instant sensation. Now branded the #CinderellaSurvivor and forced to portray a Disney princess for audience appeal, she forms a tenuous alliance with fellow inmates in a desperate attempt to unravel the island's secrets and expose the injustice of their situation, all while suspecting she was brought there for a specific reason. McNeil (I'm Not Your Manic Pixie Dream Girl) offers a tense, fast-paced tale that balances gore (numerous people die in creative, occasionally graphic ways), pop culture, and dark comedy. Ages 14 up.

BEST BOOK EVER
I really did love this book, as a person who never really reads. This book kept me on the edge of my seat and with every turn of the page I wanted more, and now that I have finished it, I still want more. Because I just want to see what happened after the camera moved at the end.
This book is creepy and funny as hell! On. Point.
This book is SPECTACULAR. It's creepy and funny as hell. Its timeliness makes it a particularly exciting and disturbing read. I couldn’t put it down. This is absolutely my favorite novel Gretchen has written thus far and my TOP READ of 2018!
