Staff Reviews

In a not so distant future, the public execution of felons becomes the hottest and goriest show on air. Streaming live from the island of “Alcatraz 2.0,” the mysterious figure only known as “The Postman” soon has most of America obsessed with this twisted hybrid of justice and entertainment. Think Big Brother with more screaming and much more blood. It’s here that seventeen-year-old Dee Guerrera becomes the next convicted murderer offered up for this cruel game. The only problem is that she’s innocent. But, instead of lying down and dying, Dee is determined to fight for survival and discovering the real killer who purposely set her up. Gretchen McNeil’s #murdertrending borrows cues from the likes of The Running Man, The Hunger Games, and The Purge, adding dashes of pop culture references and humor, all wrapped up in a bow of teenage-girl power. Tune in as Dee, soon known as #CinderellaSurvivor, slays ridiculously-themed executioners and show ratings.

WELCOME TO WHO WANTS TO BE A PAINIAC?, the latest reality TV show on the hunt for the next big-hit serial killer. But don’t worry—no one is actually going to murder anyone, as real as the fake gore and pretend murder may appear . . . uh, right?
Seventeen-year-old Becca Martinello is about to find out. When her perfectly normal soccer mom dies in a car crash, a strange girl named Stef appears and lets Becca know that her deceased mom was none other than one of Alcatraz 2.0’s most popular serial killers—Molly Mauler. Soon, Becca ends up on Who Wants to Be a Painiac? to learn the truth about her mom’s connection to Molly, but things turn sinister when the people around her start being murdered IRL. Will Becca uncover dark secrets and make it out of the deadly reality show alive? Or will she get cut?
