Transcript of Lockdown: Escape From Furnace

Lockdown: Escape From Furnace Book By: Alexander Gordon Smith Prezi By: Cody Clayton Alex Sawyer Characters Carl Donovan Zee Hatcher Kevin Gary Owens Montegomery Toby Merchant Blacksuits The Warden Wheezers Alex used to break into houses and steal things with his best friend Toby, until one winter night when guards from Furnace Penitentiary shoots Toby and frames Alex. Carl Donovan went to Furnace because he killed his mother's boyfriend when he was 11. Zee has the same story as Alex. He got blamed for a murder and got sentenced to life in Furnace the same day as Alex. Kevin is the original leader of the strongest
gang in Furnace called the Skulls. Gary is the most feared inmate in Furnace after he
becomes the new leader of the Skulls by beating
up Kevin. Monty was framed for killing his own
sister. He becomes Kevin's cell mate. Toby Merchant was going to kill himself until Alex promises him that there is a way out. The blacksuits are the guards of Furnace Penitentiary. The inmates compare the warden to satan.
The inmates also say that it is hard to look
into his eyes. Setting Furnace Penitentiary -
an underground prison. Alex and his best friend, Toby, used to break into houses and steal things, until one day when they break into a house and some blacksuits kill Toby and frames Alex. Alex gets sentenced to life at Furnace. Furnace is an underground prison for young people that have been sentenced to life in prison. It has one elevator to get down to the prison, which is guarded. Also, whenever a fight happens, there will be a lockdown. During a lockdown every inmate has a certain amount of time to get to their cells before it closes. If an inmate doesn't make it in time then demon dogs are released to kill them. The Skulls were beating up Montegomery, and Alex filled with adrenaline, goes over to the Skulls and starts a fight. At one point, during the fight one of the Skulls is about to stab Alex and Zee comes and saves him, while everyone else is running to their cells because of a lockdown. The cells close and Alex and Zee somehow outrun the demon dogs. Donovan holds the cell door open with a toilet seat to their cell and Zee and Alex luckily escape from the dogs. Summary Alex finds a crack in the ground in an abandoned room that leads to a river but it is too small to fit through to escape. After this Alex becomes depressed and thinks that there is no way out. After two weeks, he thinks of a plan to escape. They take gloves and fill them with propane and sneak them out of the kitchen to the abandoned room to use as bombs to expand the crack on the ground. Read the book to find out whether they end up escaping or not! Conflict The conflict of this story is external man vs. man because it is Zee, Alex, Donovan, and Toby against the blacksuits. I strongly recommend this book. Overall, this is a very exciting book. Recommendation Theme The theme is to expect the consequences because if Alex never broke into houses and stole things, then he wouldn't be in jail and his friend Toby wouldn't be dead. The wheezers are figures that Alex say look like Nazi Storm
Troopers. They have gas masks sewn onto their faces. They come out during blood watch. Blood
watch is when a siren goes off, along with flashing red lights, and wheezers come out. If you make any
noises, they'll mark and X on your cell and you will be taken away. The wheezers are figures that Alex say look like Nazi Storm
