Six days.

That’s the amount of time until Lezah’s execution.

She’ll die never knowing what got her locked up in that godforsaken prison in the first place. Her only chance of survival is to escape. Except the monitoring bracelet that digs into her wrist, the roaming AI, and the implant in her neck make freedom close to impossible.

Her best chance is to team up with the four other inmates who are determined to break out, even if one of them is beyond gorgeous annoying—oh, and in for murder. But he has a secret of his own. One that could break Lezah if she finds out, but could also set him free.

Figuring out how to work with him and the rest of this mismatched group of criminals is the only way Lezah will survive to see the outside world again.

But nothing in this prison is as it seems. And no one.


“BREAKOUT is a thrilling, action-packed ride that is guaranteed to keep your heart pumping and the pages turning!” - Kim Chance, author of the Keeper & Seeker series

“A.M. Rose drops you into a world of danger and suspicion, and keeps you guessing until the end.” -  Beth Kander, author of Original Syn

“A.M. Rose's sophomore novel, BREAKOUT, is sure to take readers on a fascinating journey into the distant (or not so distant) future, where technology controls every aspects of life and state surveillance reigns supreme. Part cyberpunk dystopia, part frantic prison break romp, and part science fiction, BREAKOUT will keep you guessing until the last page. A.M. Rose's superb skill of creating engaging characters that readers will care about deeply shines on every page. From the very first sentence, I was cheering for Lezah, the narrator, as she fought her way out of danger and forged bonds with the unlikeliest of allies instrumental to her success.”  – Katya de Becerra author of What the Woods Keep

Breakout by A.M. Rose is a young adult science fiction fantasy that is a dystopian, futuristic version of our society. The story is one that is rather fast paced as the characters face constant dangers.
