The Turning by Francine Prose
September 25th 2012
Jack is babysitting for
the summer on an isolated island with no Wi-Fi, no cell service, and no
one else around but a housekeeper and two very peculiar children. He
immediately senses something sinister-and it's not just the creepy black
house he's living in. Soon he is feeling terribly isolated and alone,
but then he discovers there are others. The problem is, he's the only
who can see them. As secrets are revealed and darker truths surface,
Jack desperately struggles to maintain a grip on reality. He knows what
he sees, and he isn't crazy…Or is he?
Where does reality end
and insanity begin? The Turn of the Screw reinvented for modern-day
teens, by National Book Award finalist Francine Prose.
