On Sale: April 1, 2010
Add to Wish List
Ever since her father was stabbed to death in a home
invasion, Julia “Jules” 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 mother’s decision to send Shay to an
elite boarding school in Oregon, she’s skeptical. The
Academy has a reputation for turning wayward kids around –
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 school’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 director’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 – 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. There’s no doubt
something sinister is at hand – but Jules may be too late
to stop it. Behind the Academy’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...
