Publisher's Summary

When the star of Edric Davies' basketball team succumbs to injury, he steps up to save the day. Suddenly, Edric has the world at his fingertips; fame, popularity, even the girl. But, for a poor kid in a rich town, that just isn't how it works. In Mount Collier, kids like Edric can't have it all. He is soon betrayed, condemned to a life in Shatterly's Obedience and Drill Fraternity, the state's harshest military school. Just when Edric is ready to give up all hope, he meets Abraham Feinstein, an eccentric professor, who will bring him back from the brink. With Feinstein's help, Edric will be reborn as a weapon of vengeance, desperate to visit those who destroyed his life.

great take on a classic

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This was a book that is clearly targeted for a Young Adult audience, though I still found it to be enjoyable. It is a modern (High School) take on the Count of Monte Cristo story. The main character is out of place in his upscale community high school and falls pray to the whims of his "betters." Thus a mentor emerges that empowers him to take his vengeance. This book is a bit... fantastical in places, but if you take it for what it is, it is quite enjoyable. The narrator does a great job on the voices, especially Abraham. If you like these sorts of stories, sit back, listen and get lost in this modern take on a classic.
