@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?

The concept of this book really drew me in. It was definitely different to anything else that I had read and that’s what I liked.

There were some parts in the book that just didn’t do it for me. In terms of around the last quarter of the book with The Prisoners favourite killers and Dee fighting for her life. It felt rushed and planned and I didn’t like that.

Overall, it was a good story with a backstory that wound around the whole story. I loved how the author wasn’t even a little bit afraid to kill character’s off.

It was a fast paced and fun book and I actually really enjoyed. Enjoyed it that much I wanted to finish it and stayed up till 3am.
