The Institute
by
Perennial contender and scary story all-star Stephen King collects his ninth Goodreads Choice Award with The Institute. Conjuring the spirit of stone-cold classics like Firestarter and It, King’s new saga follows the fate of six supernaturally gifted kids locked into a harrowing facility known only as, yes, the Institute. This King fellow shows a lot of promise. He should have a bright future.
