Life Sentence to Hell

Lockdown: Escape from Furnace, Alexander Gordin Smith

Beneath Heaven is Hell. Beneath Hell is Furnace.

Furnace is controlled by bloodthirsty gangs and vicious guards. "Hotter than hell, and twice as much fun!" said by Darren Shan. Alexander Gordon Smith has written this book with great skill creating a mystery and horror filled atmosphere. Furnace is a high-security, secretive evil jail in England. Alex, the main protagonist, started his crime off by bullying at school, and stealing lunch money. Yet as he grew older his greed became even more uncontrollable. One day Alex and his friend in crime, Toby, had robbed a bait house. He found himself trapped in the house by unusually tall and strong men. They shot Toby and framed Alex for the crime. Alex called these men 'blacksuits'. Alex was arrested and was put on life sentence to Furnace. Alex had reasoned out that Furnace was not right and therefore Alex and his allies, -Donovan, Toby, And Zee- must escape. Donovan was Alex's cellmate and also his guardian angel. Yet Donovan wouldn't like to accept it. Zee was an inmate you was brought to Furnace at the same time as Alex. Zee would be your typical teenager who would (without trying) make people around him feel comfortable. Lastly, Toby was the newest in Furnace. He was about to commit suicide yet changed his mind due to Alex's bravery. The boys worked many days to think of an escape route and to execute it. The friends came together and found a way out.

Madison Beer - Unbreakable

Do you feel like you just can't take no more. Broken heart, all your pieces on the floor. Like you're running out of breath, tryna find yourself, before you blow away in the night. Every word you ever said, every way you ever felt, I know it's hard but baby tonight...



We're gonna run through fire, Like we've never been burned
We're gonna laugh out loud, Like we've never been hurt
We're gonna shout it out to the edge of the world, We're unbreakable
You're unbreakable



We're gonna scream on rooftops, Dance in the rain
We'll open up our hearts, Yeah, forget the pain
And they can call us crazy, Freakin' untamed
We're unbreakable
We're unbreakable
You're unbreakable
You're unbreakable



Empty streets, filled with faces you don't know
In the crowd tryna stand out, trying to glow
But no matter where you are, It's like you're in the dark, And just can't find the fuse to the light
Every word you ever said, Every way you ever felt
I know it's hard but baby tonight



We're gonna run through fire, Like we've never been burned
We're gonna laugh out loud, Like we've never been hurt
We're gonna shout it out to the edge of the world, We're unbreakable
You're unbreakable



We're gonna scream on rooftops, Dance in the rain
We'll open up our hearts, Yeah, forget the pain
And they can call us crazy, Freakin' untamed
We're unbreakable
We're unbreakable
You're unbreakable



I am me, there's nothing that can break me
Nothing that can break me, I'm telling you I am free
There's nothing that can hold me, Nothing that can hold me
I'm telling you I am me
Nothing that can break me, Nothing that can break me
I'm telling you I am free, Can't hold me down



We're gonna run through fire,Like we've never been burned
We're gonna laugh out loud, Like we've never been hurt
We're gonna shout it out to the edge of the world, We're unbreakable
You're unbreakable



We're gonna scream on rooftops, Dance in the rain
We'll open up our hearts, Yeah, forget the pain
And they can call us crazy, Freakin' untamed
