 The Wicked We Have Done by Sarah Harian

wickedExpected Publication: March 18, 2014

Publisher: Penguin/InterMix Books

Synopsis from Goodreads:

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.

Despite the fact that this does seem to be a little reminiscent of a Hunger Games style plot, I think I could really enjoy the darkness of this story line. I am intrigued to see how exactly this system doles out justice, so come March 18 I will definitely be on the look out for this book.

Does this sound like a book you can’t wait to read? What other books have been on your radar?
