Oz never imagined things could get this bad. Just months after his father’s death, his mother has married a controlling, brutal man. But nothing prepares Oz for getting framed for drug possession. Or being abducted while his mom looks on. Suddenly Oz finds himself at Briarwood School, which is really a prison. Cut off from the rest of the world, subjected to vicious punishments with no hope of escape, Oz uncovers the dark truth: his stepfather is behind it all. But why? If Oz doesn’t figure out a way to get out, and fast, he—and his mom—could end up dead.

Acclaimed author Walter Sorrells takes readers on an adrenaline rush of a ride in this contemporary thriller.

With a plot that mirrors April Henry’s rather shallow Shock Point (February 2006), Sorrells delivers a more convincing portrait of a teen victimized by a new stepfather and placed in a school that is a virtual prison, complete with torture.
