Publisher's Summary

A bighearted dystopian novel about the corrosive effects of fear and the redemptive power of love.
At the end of the 21st century - in a transformed America - the families of convicted felons are tested for a set of genetic markers. Boys who test positive become compulsory wards of the state - removed from their homes and raised on "Goodhouse" campuses, where they learn to reform their darkest thoughts and impulses. Goodhouse is a feral place - part prison, part boarding school - and now a radical religious group, the Holy Redeemer’s Church of Purity, is intent on destroying each campus and purifying every child with fire.
We see all this through the eyes of James, a transfer student who watched as the radicals set fire to his old Goodhouse and everyone he’d ever known. In addition to adjusting to a new campus with new rules, James now has to contend with Bethany, a brilliant, medically fragile girl who wants to save him, and her father, the school's sinister director of medical studies. Soon, however, James realizes that the biggest threat might already be there, inside the fortified walls of Goodhouse itself.
Partly based on the true story of the 19th century Preston School of Industry and the boys who lived and died in its halls, Goodhouse explores questions of identity and free will - and what it means to test the limits of human endurance.
