When Good Test Scores Mean You Get to Live with Nurse Ratchet: The Institute by Stephen King

Finally, a school for special abilities that parents won’t fight over or bribe administrators to attend.

Probably.

Full disclosure – big Stephen King fan here. The likelihood I was going to enjoy “The Institute” was as high as some of the characters’ BDNF scores (more on that in just a minute). Not all King work is for everyone – admittedly I am more into supernatural and less into gore. So it’s important to know where this book falls on the spectrum – and it’s decidedly more of a supernatural thriller. If you stop to think about the gravity of the scenes King depicts though, it’ll give you the full-on willies. People do not die pretty deaths at The Institute.
