It’s time for a new Random Read! This month random.org has given me #67 on my Shelfari “plan to Read” shelf: Dark Eden by Patrick Carman. Of course, that means it also counts for Gathering Books’ CORL 2014.
Here’s a synopsis from Patrick Carman’s site:
Fifteen-year-old Will Besting is sent by his doctor to Fort Eden, an institution meant to help patients suffering from crippling phobias. Once there, Will and six other teenagers take turns in mysterious fear chambers and confront their worst nightmares—with the help of the group facilitator, Rainsford, an enigmatic guide. When the patients emerge from the chamber, they feel emboldened by the previous night’s experiences. But each person soon discovers strange, unexplained aches and pains. . . . What is really happening to the seven teens trapped in this dark Eden?
Hooray! This sounds spooky, weird, and right up my alley!
And I might as well do this while I’m at it….
