From the Publisher
For Zack Thomson, living in the Nicholls Ward isn''t so bad.
After his parents died, he developed strange and severe allergies,
and the mental institution was the only place where he could be
properly looked after. As strange as it was, it was home.
He could watch as much television as he wanted; his best friend
Charlie visited him often enough; and Nurse Ophelia-the prettiest
no-nonsense nurse ever-sometimes took him bowling. Of course, that
didn''t mean he had it easy. His allergies restricted his diet to
strawberry smoothies, and being the only kid at the hospital could
get lonely. But it never once crossed Zack''s mind to leave.until
the night someone crashed through the front doors and told him to
run. Now he''s on a race for answers-about his past, his parents,
and his strange sickness-even as every step takes him closer to the
darkest of truths.
