Nowhere by Jon Robinson
Handbag Reader Rating: 3/5
Nowhere by Jon Robinson is a governmental conspiracy novel that follows a group of teenagers who we're led to believe have been falsely imprisoned in a secure centre in the wilderness.
The young adults are informed that they have committed crimes that they don't remember committing by corrupt guards who attempt to manipulate and convince them that they are guilty and need to be punished.
Nowhere has an interesting plot, with short chapters that add pace and make it an easy read. There are a number of characters but you find that you connect and empathise with all of them as a reader.
The ending was interesting and open to interpretation, but left me wanting to know more. This is book one in a brand new series of novels, so we'll just have to wait to find out how the cliffhangers play out!
