Candor by Pam Bachorz
This book surprised me as I didn’t expect to like it. Brutal in its simplicity, this is a story full of evil and control that, as unlikely as it sounds, actually stems from genuine concern for others.
Recommended age: 12+
Add to your shelf:
e-perfect new town of Candor, Florida, is attracting more and more new families, drawn by its postcard-like small-town feel, with white picket fences, spanking-new but old-fashioned-looking homes, and neighborliness.
But the parents are drawn by something else as well. They know that in Candor their obstreperous teenagers will somehow become rewired – they’ll learn to respect their elders, to do their chores, and enjoy their homework. They’ll give up the tattoos, metal music, and partying that have been driving their parents crazy. They’ll become every parent’s dream. — Extract from Goodreads.com
