Summary
A taut, emotionally wrenching story of how a seemingly "normal" family could become desperate enough to leave everything behind and move to a "family camp" in New Hampshire. The Hammond family is living in DC, where everything seems to be going just fine, until it becomes clear that the oldest daughter, Tilly, is developing abnormally - a mix of off-the-charts genius and social incompetence. The family turns to Camp Harmony and the wisdom of child behaviour guru Scott Bean for a solution. But what they discover in the woods of New Hampshire will push them to the very limit
Summary
A tale told from the alternating perspectives of a desperate mother and her socially incompetent, genius daughter recounts how, after several school expulsions, their family moves to a spiritual compound under the leadership of a charismatic guru where they encounter nightmarish realities
