Going for Stone

(Turn to Stone)
A novel by

Nick is a runaway in desperate need of money and a safe place to sleep. That's when he meets Swan and the other human statues-a group of street artists who can turn themselves, almost, to stone. But soon Nick and Swan are spotted by Antonin, with his offer of a place at his artists' academy. Inside these ivy-covered walls is a world that's more like a cult than a theater school. And those students who leave, where do they really go? The deeper Nick digs, the more he's on the verge of uncovering the horrifying truth.

A chilling, atmospheric thriller that unfolds to reveal grim secrets and startling revelations up to the very end.
