A group of teens with mental trauma meet at a private Florida clinic for experimental treatment, but they discover that the treatment has a dark downside.
Kate Messner has a distinctive style - she brings details to her characters (like relationships with family members) that aren't common to authors of books for this age group. This book is more about action than character development, though. While some content might disturb some readers, it's not as dark as The Hunger Games. Readers who like this might also like The Limit by Kristen Landon - it has a similar vibe.
The best discussion questions, of course, are generated by and contemplated by readers. These questions are designed to avoid major spoilers about the book, and to provide a starting point for teachers, parents, and student reading groups.
