“You have to help me. We’re not being reformed. We’re being brainwashed.”


All sixteen year old Drew Finch wants is to be left alone. She’s not interested in spending time with her mum and stepdad and when her disruptive fifteen year old brother Mason is expelled from school for the third time and sent to a residential reform academy she’s almost relieved.


Everything changes when she’s followed home from school by the mysterious Dr Cobey, who claims to have a message from Mason. There is something sinister about the ‘treatment’ he is undergoing. The school is changing people.


Determined to help her brother, Drew must infiltrate the Academy and unearth its deepest, darkest secrets.


Before its too late.
