Cell 7

Cell 7

Drewery, Kerry, author

A world where justice and the fate of those accused of murder is decided by the public, but has moved on from the Roman Gladiator 'thumbs up or thumbs down' public vote, to a public vote by telephone. If you are voted innocent you are set free; if you are voted guilty you are committed to death by electric chair. Those awaiting their sentence reside in ever decreasing cells, getting smaller each day, until Day 7 and Cell 7, where they hear their fate. 16 year old Martha has confessed to killing a famous celebrity. But has she done it? And if not, why has she claimed the murder? Perhaps she wants to show up the flawed and brutal system by sacrificing herself in the hope of a better world

Reviews

This book will appeal to fans of The Hunger Games, a modern classic for those who like their future served up with a generous slice of dystopia
The Bookbag||This powerful thriller oozes suspense and offers a sharp satire on media and celebrity
The Bookseller||A ticking time bomb of book, and you're counting down to an electrifying end
Maximum Pop||This will have great appeal to anyone who loves Suzanne Collins, Teri Terry or Veronica Roth. It makes you think about the nature of social media and the power it gives its users over other people's lives

Back cover copy

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 or Justice, the only TV show that gives the power of life and death decisions - all for the price of a premium rate phone call.

Martha has admitted to the crime. But is she guilty? Or is reality more complicated than the images we are shown on TV?
