In the exclusive community of Candor, Florida, everything is perfect – no crime, teens do all their homework, obey their parents and everyone lives a healthy lifestyle.  And every kid wants to be like Oscar Banks.  The son of the town’s founder, Oscar is the perfect student, perfect son and perfect example of what every teen should be.  But Oscar has them all fooled.  He knows that parents bring their teens to Candor to hear the subliminal  Messages that brainwash them and control their behavior.  Nobody knows that Oscar has made his own Messages to deprogram his brain.  He’s even found a way to get rich.  For a hefty price, he helps new kids escape before they’ve been transformed into cookie-cutter teens.

Then Nia moves into town, the girl Oscar can’t stand to see changed.  Soon he’s faced with a dilemma.  Saving Nia means losing her forever.  Keeping her in Candor, Oscar risks exposure…and more.
