Violet and Orianna used to be best friends—that is, until Ori was convicted of murder and sent to a juvenile detention center. Now Violet practices ballet alone, but what she doesn’t know is that another girl, Amber, sits behind bars, longing for the day that she will be free. When Amber and Ori meet, which of the three girls’ secrets is about to be unleashed?

It contains:

• Profanity (one F-word, b*tch, *sshole)
• References to homosexual relationships
• Abusive stepfather
• Blood
• Murder scene (descriptions of slit throats and a gutted stomach; quite gory)
• Fake blood prank
• Violent threats
• A girl beats up another girl
• A girl purposely bashes her head against a door
• References to crimes committed

The Walls Around Us is a young adult mysterious contemporary novel with supernatural themes. The story is told from two different perspectives, and the writing is engaging. The plot does revolve around a juvenile detention center and past murders, so there is quite a bit of violence.
