Hidden high in the Rocky Mountains, The Center houses inmates ages twelve to twenty-two. The experiment in reform isn’t without controversy. Blogs report students being tasered or tortured in a dungeon. Eighteen-year-old, Courtney Manchester doesn’t buy the hype. She believes concentration-camp tactics wouldn’t fly in America, especially not for the niece of a US Senator. 

As she passes through a twenty-foot-high electric fence on a snowcat, she wonders how much her crimes will cost her in the end. Will Courtney find a way to run things on the inside the way she did on the outside? Or will The Center take away more than her freedom?

LT Kodzo’s first book in The Center trilogy, is not a sequel to her award-winning novel, Locker 572. But it does answer the question many readers have asked, “Whatever happened to Courtney?”
