Lockdown, because all the descriptions of prison life and interactions between the inmates are the most interesting thing about this novel.
Favorite things: the descriptive writing, Karma - the intense and troubled inmate Devon has to live with in prison and the courage of Amy Efaw to approach such a controversial topic.
Criticisms: it was boring at times, the main character started to get on my nerves very quickly into this novel and I found myself annoyed at her attitude several times when reading. I much prefer characters I can actually like. Some parts were a bit too gory for my tastes as well. I also didn't like the way the story would flit back and forth between the present and flashbacks every couple of pages. I felt like I was following the thought process of someone with ADD who couldn't focus on one thing. Sometimes flashbacks are a useful tool in a story and I even believe some of the flashbacks were useful in this book, however it got a bit out of control in my opinion and I found it difficult to follow.
Overall: 3 out of 5 stars...
