Publisher's Summary

Freedom Lake Resort.

Gated. Fenced. Remote.

Miles from home.

Miles from friends.

The moment 12-year-old Kelsey and her mother arrive at Freedom Lake, it's obvious that this is not going to be the kind of resort experience Kelsey expected. Or hoped for. A nurse escorts a girl in a strait-jacket out the back door of their cabin and Kelsey's creeped out. The girl begs Kelsey for help. Mrs. A., the woman who runs the resort, apologizes and explains that the girl hasn't been taking her meds. That's when Kelsey learns there's a private school on the property for girls with “special needs.” It's off-limits to resort guests, not that Kelsey would have a reason to go there.

At first Kelsey believes Mrs. A. because she has other things to worry about. Like how she will fit in with the rest of the resort kids. One boy in particular. Things change when one of the “special girls” slips Kelsey a secret message. It's a riddle. As Kelsey begins to unravel its meaning, she realizes something chilling is going on at Freedom Lake Girls Academy. The more Kelsey learns, the greater her danger. If she's not careful, she might become a “special girl,” too.

A tweenage mystery ...

Twelve year old Kelsey is on a 2 week vacation with her mother at a Lake Resort. Her best friend was supposed to come along but couldn't. Kelsey now wonders what she is going to do, will she make friends and will she have fun while at the resort. Kelsey's mom signs her up for a quilt class and while there she receives a message full of clues from someone over at the school for 'girls with special needs'. This leads Kelsey into a search for answers.

I really liked this book. It would be great for someone middle school aged and up.

Ms. Pitts did a nice job with the narrating. At first, I thought the reading was a little rushed but as I got into the story, I realized that she really took on the character of a 12 year old with their fast pace speaking and excitement.

I would listen to this again and recommend it to my friends!
