<b>From #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author Stephen King, the most riveting and unforgettable story of kids confronting evil since <i>It.</i></b><br /><br />In the middle of the night, in a house on a quiet street in suburban Minneapolis, intruders silently murder Luke Ellis鈥檚 parents and load him into a black SUV. The operation takes less than two minutes. Luke will wake up at The Institute, in a room that looks just like his own, except there鈥檚 no window. And outside his door are other doors, behind which are other kids with special talents鈥攖elekinesis and telepathy鈥攚ho got to this place the same way Luke did: Kalisha, Nick, George, Iris, and ten-year-old Avery Dixon. They are all in Front Half. Others, Luke learns, graduated to Back Half, 鈥渓ike the roach motel,鈥?Kalisha says. 鈥淵ou check in, but you don鈥檛 check out.鈥?lt;br /> <br />In this most sinister of institutions, the director, Mrs. Sigsby, and her staff are ruthlessly dedicated to extracting from these children the force of their extranormal gifts. There are no scruples here. If you go along, you get tokens for the vending machines. If you don鈥檛, punishment is brutal. As each new victim disappears to Back Half, Luke becomes more and more desperate to get out and get help. But no one has ever escaped from the Institute.<br /> <br />As psychically terrifying as <i>Firestarter,</i> and with the spectacular kid power of <i>It</i>, <i>The Institute</i> is Stephen King鈥檚 gut-wrenchingly dramatic story of good vs. evil in a world where the good guys don鈥檛 always win.
