Cassie comes home from school one day to find a strange van in the driveway. Without warning two men grab her and force her into the back. Cassie fights and screams to no avail. When her mother comes out, instead of helping Cassie escape, she hands the men Cassie's suitcase. Cassie's stepfather, Rick, tells her he found crystal meth hidden in her room and he and her mother have decided to send her to a rehab facility. But Cassie has never used drugs! She knows her stepfather planted the meth in her room, and she knows why, too. She doesnít have time to tell the authorities her story before she is hauled off to Peaceful Cove, a brutal boot camp in Mexico for teenagers with behavior problems. Peaceful Cove is more like a prison than a school or a camp.  SHOCK POINT is a story of survival and determination, full of suspense and urgency. Fair warning: once you start reading, you will find it nearly impossible to close the book until the very end.  (Jean B. Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards, 2007-2008)
