His mum and dad have been killed. And though he is only small, he swears that he will get revenge one day. Years later, Trey enters a strange camp that is meant to save troubled teenagers. It us packed with crazies, god-botherers, devoted felons and broken kids. Trey has been in and out of trouble ever since the day the bad thing happened, but he is not here for saving: this is where he will find the man who did it. Revenge and healing, salvation and hell are a boiling, dangerous mix, and Trey finds himself drawn to a girl, a dream and the offer of friendship in the dark."@en ;
