it was amazing

Young Adult Science Fiction

Sixteen-year-old Jess and his fellow prisoners wear collars. When a prisoner doesn't obey orders or tries to escape, the collar of the disobedient prisoner and the collars of prisoners around the guilty prisoner are activated. Therefore, a rebellious prisoner has to face not only guards but also the other prisoners. A disobedient prisoner is likely to be killed by his fellow prisoners.

Like canaries sent down the mineshaft, Jess and two other prisoners are forced into a spaceship to check for booby traps. Once they make it inside the ship, an amazing thing happens. Their collars fall off. They know the guards will kill them when they see them without the collars. They also know the guards will kill all of the prisoners who witness their collarless state.

Faced with certain death if they stay, the three decide to make a run for it in the ship. Their adventures take them to unexpected places and situations.

Simon Goodson's Wanderer's Escape, the first book in the Wanderer's Odyssey series, is a great young adult science fiction. The book also offers humor. For example, when it's time for Jess to get the birds and bees talk, the ship obliges with images which make him blush.
