From America’s most trusted storyteller, #1  New York Times bestselling author Stephen King, tells the most riveting and unforgettable story about kids confronting evil since It. 

In the middle of the night, in a house on a quiet street in suburban Minneapolis, intruders silently murder Luke Ellis’ parents and load him into a black SUV.  This takes less than two minutes.  Like will wake up at  The Institute, in a room that looks just like his own, except there’s no window.  And outside his door are other doors, behind which are other kids with special talents—telekinesis and telepathy—who got to this place the same way Luke did.  These kids are all in Front Half.

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’t, punishment is brutal.  As each new victim disappears to Balk Half, Luke becomes more and more desperate to get out and get help.  But no one has ever escaped from The Institute. 

The Institute is Stephen King‘s gut-wrenchingly dramatic story of good versus evil in a world where the good guys don’t  always win.
