The Lovereading4Kids comment

A thrilling story of survival against terrifying odds. Does seventeen-year-old Carl Hobbes stay inside the secure unit even though chaos reigns after one of the inmates causes an uprising or, does he head for the outside world and try to survive in the Arctic wilderness? In other words, are Carl’s chances of survival better inside the cage or out?

Synopsis

Inside The Cage by Matthew Whyman

College student, teenage hacker, enemy combatant? Under suspicion for a virtual break-in at Fort Knox, 17 year old Carl Hobbes finds himself on a rendition flight for questioning by the US military. Taken to an isolated Arctic wilderness, dedicated to holding terrorists for hire, the boy finds all assurances about his safety blow away when one notorious detainee stages an uprising. Cut off from civilisation, and with overnight temperatures plummeting, Hobbes must decide whether his chances of survival are greater inside the cage, or out.
