Angela’s parents decide that she has become uncontrollable or at least too much trouble for them to bother with. Instead they ship her off to Hidden Oak. A special boarding school for girls on the edge. Hidden Oak promises to rehabilitate these dangerous girls and sends frequent reports to the parents who are not allowed to call, write or visit during the school year. But Angela discovers there are girls who are being rehabilitated are girls who are just being manipulated for profit. This book reminded me a lot of the movie Girl, Interrupted.
