Erin's Review of 101, by Margaret Chatwin

My rating: didn't like it it was ok liked it really liked it (my current rating) it was amazing
How do you get desperately needed answers when no one is talking? Who do you trust in a place full of criminals, a place where it’s easy to mistake friends for enemies and enemies for friends? And how is it possible for one girl to seemingly vanish into thin air, especially when the place is surrounded by sixteen foot high electric fences?
When Trigg and his sister Ren are sentenced to township 101 for the crime of defending themselves, and Ren suddenly comes up missing, Trigg must ask himself these same questions.
Something else he’d like to know is, how do you survive when the flaws of the NAO’s justice system has turned a simple punishment into a game of life or death?

Sadly, this story probably hits very close to home with some individuals.  It completely enveloped me from the very first page, to the last.  The story was well told, with great character development and a lot of moments that cause heightened emotional response.  I have always been infatuated with criminals and the criminal justice system.  With what really goes on in prison.  As heartbreaking as it is this story was probably very close to the truth.
 This book was right up my alley, the feelings of innocence, anger, fright, and even love had me grasping at straws for more! 
I am not a reviewer that spends time recapping what the story was about, as I feel it’s a waste of time.  The synopsis says everything you need to know, and my job is to convince you through my experience to either read the book, or not to bother.  With this book, it is difficult to say much without getting into details that will end up spoiling the book for you.  So I will leave you with this….

Author Margaret Chatwin has called Roosevelt, Utah home for the past twelve years, but her roots are in the the beautiful Heber valley. Since the age of thirteen Margaret has been taking amazing adventures through her writing. Writing has always been very personal and private to her. Recently, however, she has chosen to share her talent with the world.

She has written over fifty novels, and currently has three published.

Margaret likes to "mix it up," writing many different types of books within the fiction genre.

Paperback and Ebooks are available at and (watch for great money saving coupon codes on Lulu’s home page. Seems like something is always on sale there.)
