really liked it

LOCKDOWN is a guy-friend read for middle graders. Which is not to say that girls won't like it. My daughter, 8th grade, would give it 5 STARS accompanied by a 'squee'. She's reading it as part of a book club at school and I haven't heard her be this enthusiastic about a read since HOLES.

What makes it popular is the combination of creepiness, danger, and action. The characters are very appealing and in general I think the author has a solid grasp of his audience.

Some language. Some violence. Definite creep/scary elements. Just a fun read.
