Summary
  • "A bighearted dystopian novel about the corrosive effects of fear and the redemptive power of love by first time novelist Peyton Marshall"--
  • At the end of the twenty-first century the sons of convicted felons are tested for a set of genetic markers. Boys who test positive become compulsory wards of the state, raised on "Goodhouse" campuses, where they learn to reform their darkest thoughts and impulses. A radical religious group, the Holy Redeemer's Church of Purity, is intent on destroying each campus and purifying every child with fire. James watched as the radicals set fire to his old Goodhouse and killed nearly everyone he'd ever known. But the biggest threat might be inside the fortified walls of Goodhouse itself...
