Friday 56 and Book Beginnings {The Wicked We Have Done by Sarah Harian}

The Friday 56 is a weekly meme hosted by Freda’s Voice, as well as Book Beginnings which is hosted by Rose City Reader.  Post one or a few sentences from page or percentage 56 from any book, as well as the first sentence (or sentences) of a book you would like to highlight.

Title: The Wicked We Have Done
Author: Sarah Harian
Published: March 18th, 2014 by Penguin/InterMix Books

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.

We enjoy the bonfire of the desecration of camp.  Everything goes in the pit.  The shreds of fabric, the last of the wood from the shed.  The five of us huddle next to each other and watch it burn.
In the early afternoon, when our camp is nothing more than a pile of ash, we leave with the clothes on our back.

First Sentence:
For minutes before the beginning of my sentence, Mom breaks down.

My Thoughts
I loved the idea of this book and really thought that it was an adult version of The Hunger Games!  Although this book is full of plot holes, I absolutely loved reading it.  It was just one of those books that was a guilty pleasure read.  You can’t analyze it too carefully or it starts to unravel, but if you can accept it for what it is, it is a pretty fun read.
