The Discarded Ones: A Novel Based on a True Story

They had many names: Cedu School, Rocky Mountain Academy, and Cascade School. Some called them cults, some said the schools saved their lives. But none of them were free to leave.

Charlie Hoff was there. Soon you will be, too.

Unlock the mysteries of The Academy with Charlie as he faces the hardest decision of his young life: escape or assimilate. Neither is going to be easy.

From tales of students that disappear without a trace to secret rites conducted in forbidden rooms, Charlie Hoff soon realizes that he must become greater than his fear in order to save all he loves.

Psychology Today calls it “an important book” and “a riveting read”, and The Discarded Ones made Goodreads’ Must Read Books of the Year
