Review: CELL 7 BY KERRY DREWERY




Synopsis:

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?

Review:

Wow! What a brilliant book! This is the first of a series and it is well worth starting. 

I love the way this one has been written, with chapters written from multiple points of view from different characters. The only points I didn't like this so much was the chapters written as script for the tv show, however I think this is more a personal preference as it did work and I can see why the author wrote in this style. It takes a little getting used to but stick with it. 

Each character has more depth to them than you are expecting, the story line was a little predictable in places. You can easily work out where the main plot was taking you but there were a few nice curve balls in there as well.

Cell 7 is set in the UK, so many books that try to say something more about the world we live in do it by being set in the US or on in completely different world. I think UK readers are going to love the connections they can make.

I think if you loved books such as The Hunger Games then you are going to love this as well, I'd say I even enjoyed this more than The Hunger Games. It's about time we had something that has the potential to rival such a big series! 

Dramatic and tense. Love, love, love it!
