Summary Paralyzed by grief, Moira feels punished when her parents send her to a therapeutic boarding school in Maine where she meets eleven other troubled girls and gradually begins to understand her parents' true intentions behind sending her there.
When Moira Dreyfuss's parents announce that they're sending her to an all-girls boarding school deep in the Maine woods, she knows her parents are punishing her. She's been too much trouble since her best friend, Nathan, died-- and for a while before that. Moira soon learn that they're not so isolated after all: there's another, very different, Castle School nearby-- filled with boys whose parents sent them away, too. Exploring the schools will force Moira to confront her overwhelming grief ... and the real reasons her parents sent her away. -- adapted from jacket.
