On Sale: April 1, 2010
Add to Wish List
Ever since her father was stabbed to death in a home
invasion, Julia â€śJulesâ€ť Farentino has been plagued by
nightmares. Her half-sister, Shaylee, now seventeen, has
had her own difficulties since the tragedy, earning a rap
sheet for drug use, theft, and vandalism. Still, when
Jules learns of her motherâ€™s decision to send Shay to an
elite boarding school in Oregon, sheâ€™s skeptical. The
Academy has a reputation for turning wayward kids around â€“
but one of its students went missing six months ago and
her body has never been found. There are rumors she may
have died during one of the schoolâ€™s questionable
treatments. Once enrolled, Shay grows fearful, convinced
her every move is being watched. And the deeper Jules
digs, the more concerned she becomes.
On impulse, Jules
applies for a teaching job at the Academy. Though the
facility boasts state-of-the-art equipment and a
breathtaking campus, Jules senses cracks in the directorâ€™s
do-good demeanor. Shorty before Jules arrived, a student
was found hanged, and a hysterical Shay believes it was
murder. Staff members are wary and unwelcoming â€“ all
except Cooper Trent, another recent hire who has his own
suspicions, and his own secrets.
Then another girl goes
missing, and yet another is found dead. Thereâ€™s no doubt
something sinister is at hand â€“ but Jules may be too late
to stop it. Behind the Academyâ€™s idyllic veneer lurks an
evil force on a brutal and terrifying mission. And Jules
has become the next target of a bloodthirsty killer
without limits, without remorse, without mercy...
