#murdertrending by Gretchen McNeil is a book where the reader is taken on a thrill ride through plot twist, dark humor, mystery, and survival while main character, 17 year old Dee is wrongly accused of murdering her step-sister. Now she is sent to Alcatraz 2.0, a sentence that is usually reserved for infamous convicted killers, mobsters, mass murders, terrorists, and assassins where the good citizens of the world watch the executions of these most famous convicted villains live-streamed on The Postman app.

How could Dee a 17 year old nobody who couldn’t even throw a punch stay alive on Alcatraz 2.0 long enough to prove her innocence, let alone gain a cult following? Dee quickly becoming a star attraction and top target of the #1 live-streaming show in the country she finds herself in quite a problem that she must manage to survive with some unexpected new found friends.

I would highly recommend this to teens who like horror, and survival. The mix of horror and comedy is highly entertaining and is a definite must read!
