FROM BACK COVER:
For twelve year old freeman Mills, Wendover Home is just another temporary sanctuary that fosters the troubled and unwanted. Biding his time until an opportunity to escape arises, Freeman willtolerate the daily speeches and routines designed to change him into a productive member of society. He will not befriend any of Wendovers other lost causes, nor will he reveal the unique gift bestowed upon him by a father more interested in a scientific guinea pig than a son. Freeman soon learns that there are no secrets at Wendover. Every resident is subject to group therapy, as well as individual sessions in Room Thirteen. It is in this room that Freeman will endure experiments devised to test the abilities of the human mind. And it is these experiments that unleash something meant to stay buried in Wendovers past - something long forgotten, but not forgiving.
Pretty good story, on the creepy side.

Twelve year old Freeman Mills, arrives at Wendover Home determined to bide his time until an opportunity to escape arises, to never make friends at the home and to never reveal the unique gift bestowed on him by a father more interested in a scientific guinea pig than a son.

But the treatments unleash something meant to stay buried in Wendover's past. Something long forgotten, but not forgiving.
The only other book I've read by this author was "The Harvest" and I really didn't care for it. However, I really enjoyed this one. It's practically non-stop horror from beginning to end. I'm going to try one more of his books to see which author shows up before I add him to my must read list.
Good story with some unexpected twists. This copy is a bit worn, but no tears.
