EIGHT CHILDREN WERE KIDNAPPED.
Eight kids, ages nine to seventeen, awaken to find that almost everything they have ever known has been stolen from them.

As the kids grapple with their mysterious new reality, they struggle with disconcerting questions. Where in the world are they? Why were they taken away from their families? Will they ever get to go back home? And the most frightening question of all: Will this be the place where they die?
