Synopsis: Kirkston Abbey is no place for the weak. Standing stark against the Norfolk sky, its aim is conformity and control; its rules harsh, its discipline savage. To 14-year-old Jonathan Palmer, it is a prison; a world in which he feels threatened and powerless. When he is offered the chance of escape, in the guise of an unexpected friendship, he accepts it gladly. But all is not as it seems.
