In this amazing book by M.M. Vaughan, nobody has any confidence or trust in 'troubled youth' Christopher Lane. His mother in a strange mental instability (who doesn't even take care of their house, much less her son), his school has expelled him, and he has to steal money to get by. Despite all this, he is a good person at heart, though. Then, one day, a spark of hope shines through; he is allowed to take a very strange and unorthodox test, which he passes with flying colors. He is now invited to go to the amazing Myers Holt Academy, for 'special kids' like him. Other kids who have 'the ability', or exceptionally strong mental powers. As he and his new friends grow stronger and stronger, they begin to see that their teachers, past students at the academy, are getting worried. Something - or someone - is using an 'inferno' to put people from a past and troubling year at the academy into irreversible comas. It's up to Christopher and his new friends to stop them. But, the biggest question is; are they ready?
I personally adored this amazing book. If you are looking for your next favorite, you've found it!
