Will Besting has a secret terror. He's been in therapy for a few years, but he has yet to tell his therapist what it is. He doesn't quite trust her. He doesn't think he has a problem with his fear, but his parents nor Dr. Stevens, his counselor agree.
So when Dr. Stevens offers Will the chance to completely eradicate his fear at a compound called Fort Eden, Will still isn't on board. Along with six other teens, Will starts his journey toward recovery with one exception. While the others tentatively step into Fort Eden, Will dodges the group and decides he won't be a part of it. He finds himself on the inside, hiding the basement, and more surprisingly, he finds the monitors. It's from there that he watches and see what happens to the other six, including the procedure for the cure they endure. Ages 14 and up 336 pages
Appropriate for high school, this thriller adventure is the perfect book for guy readers but equally placed for girl readers as well.
