At a rehab school, a creepy old man sucks a group of teenagers into trusting him, despite his insane claims. The teenagers trust him to different levels, and as the lies he’s built start to crumble about him, they start to turn against him. (It’s told from the point of view of the teenagers, but I couldn’t figure out how to write the review that way.) A gripping read, totally engrossing. Well-written. No heavy-handed moralizing, just a tale for the sake of it. But the old man, Joshua, is so creepy and downright evil that I felt uncomfortable just reading about him. I would have put the book down had I not needed to see if and how he would finally fall. Read at your own risk, but if you can stomach it, you’ll be rewarded.

Good, suspenseful thriller. I am really enjoying Corrigan's writing.
