A debut author’s darkly suspenseful take on New Adult romance--and a perfect read for fans of Veronica Roth's Divergent. Twenty-two-year-old Evalyn Ibarra never expected to be an accused killer and experimental prison test subject. A year ago, she was a normal college student. Now she’s been sentenced to a month in the compass room—an advanced prison obstacle course designed by the government to execute justice. If she survives, the world will know she’s innocent. Locked up with nine notorious and potentially psychotic criminals, Evalyn must fight the prison and dismantle her past to stay alive. But the system prized for accuracy appears to be killing at random. She doesn’t plan on making friends. She doesn’t plan on falling in love, either.
Ughhhh. Is there anything worse than waiting excitedly for MONTHS for a book only for that book to fall flat in every way? I don’t think so. The Wicked We Have Done has so much potential – I mean, look at that premise! Unfortunately, it never, ever lives up to that potential and it is so disappointing.
– Finally, I thought it was strange that they had men and women inside the Compass Rooms (and even go so far as to administer contraceptive injections – which, hello, STDs?) but they still separate by sex in the actual prisons. I don’t know. Not a big deal, but still strange.
