Sometimes the past is the only way home.

Justin has never known family. His mother died when he was born. His father disappeared. And the foster care system has failed him. At seventeen, he arrives at Regent in upstate New York, a shut-down psychiatric hospital turned boarding school, to rehabilitate from a crime he never committed—and hide a secret he vowed not to share.

But Regent has secrets of its own.

The gates are locked. The students oddly contented. And Justin is the only one whose memory cannot be erased.

Or can it?

When the lines of truth become blurred and his world seems to split in two, his harbored gift—the ability to draw the past— may be the only way to determine what is real and what is imagined.
