really liked it

Trella is the Queen of the Pipes. Capable of climbing places where NO ONE else can go on the Inside. Not her fellow scrubs, forever hemming her in, or the uppers—the exalted upper level inhabitants who think they control the scrubs. No one controls Trella.

Because she doesn’t connect.

But the chance to find Gateway. The chance to escape the Inside.

THAT is a challenge Trella can’t turn down.

A challenge that matters to everyone on the Inside. Enough for people to risk their lives. The workers in the cafeteria. The old acquaintance who accepts torture. The profit who winds up in hiding. The young man who breaks through Inside’s social class barriers to help her.

But can putting their faith in Trella possibly be worth it?

Loved this! Prison Break meets—dare I say it?—Academy 7. After Poison Study, I think this is my second favorite Maria V. Snyder book.

Bookbitten1 I read this one a few months ago and loved it! I have to start reading Poison Study soon as I've heard so many good things about it. I actually scored a ARC of the next one called Outside In which I'm halfway through! Love it so far. As good as the first one!:)
