Abstract:

When Freeman Mills, a 12-year-old boy with the power to read minds and an endearing affinity for Clint Eastwood movies, arrives at the former mental institution known as Wendover Home in the Southern Appalachian mountains, he vows to tolerate the facility's psychological treatments and religious rhetoric, but refuses to make friends or reveal his ESP. He soon finds out, however, that no one keeps secrets within the aging walls of Wendover-despite the best efforts of its administrators, doctors and counselors, many of whom are involved in conducting risky shock-therapy experiments on the children. When the research goes awry, Wendover and its inhabitants get caught between the real world and the "deadscape"--A parallel universe in which long-buried ghosts from the mental institution haunt the living. --Pub. Weekly.
