This a great book. I found myself wanting to read it really quickly just to get to the bottom of the various mysteries running through it.
It basically starts in a home for troubled kids. It's the srt of place that wants to help and 'fix' the kids. On the face of it, not some awful institution.
Freeman is a very troubled kid and arrives at Wendover with a past the involves abuse by his scientist father, but also with a gift for reading minds. He finds that some of the other kids can also read minds after going into the mysterious Room Thirteen for treatments with the doctor. Then people start to see ghosts of the former mental patients from the time before Wendover was a childrens' home.
The whole story unfolds brilliantly and the pieces all fall into place. Friendships start up with kids that have never seen the point or had the opportunity to forge alliances with other kids. Throw in some secret government cover up and you're onto a winner!
