Anais Hendricks, fifteen, is in the back of a police car, covered in blood, and headed for the Panopticon, a home for chronic young offenders. Raised in foster care from birth and moved through twenty-three placements before she even turned seven, Anais has been let down by just about every adult she has ever met.
The residents of the Panopticon form intense bonds, and together, they struggle against the adults that keep them confined. But when she looks up at the watchtower that looms over the residents, Anais realizes her fate: She is an anonymous part of an experiment, and she always was.
Now it seems that the experiment is closing in.
