Instead of being locked up, he is being sent to the middle of nowhere to live with a new foster mom, as part of a government scheme called The Leaf Project. But Matt’s new home provides anything but peace and quiet. His new guardian is involved in very sinister things – and the whole town seems to be on her side. Everybody who tries to help Matt winds up disappearing – or dead. The truth is much bigger than Matt or the town—but Matt is the only person who can stop the ultimate evil from being unleashed.
