A group of kids destined for juvenile detention are given a reprieve and sent to an alternative ‘school‘. It looks like they are part of some sort of weird experiment, but for what isn‘t clear, and the methods are dubious at best.

I have read some fantastic #ozfiction this year, and this has to be up there as one of the best! Very much in my wheel house. Great read!

Cathythoughts Great review! Is it very upsetting? Id like to stack .. a bit afraid of cruelty towards young people .... if there‘s hope then that‘s ok 3mo
JennyM @Cathythoughts there isn‘t any cruelty directly, but as we learn about each child, we do learn their individual traumas that have led to their being at the ‘school‘. Without revealing spoilers, I‘d say it‘s really about psychology and research studies. But I always think, if in doubt, then maybe not - always plenty of other books to read 😘 3mo
