Surrounded by jungle and water, Jane is immediately plunged into unrelenting heat and the psychological abuse of the teaching staff. The truest connection she makes on the island is with Keefer, a sensitive fellow student who keeps a shark he has named Jonah captive in an ocean pen. But as days extend into weeks, Jane Guy feels herself changing, retreating into a body and spirit she can no longer recognize. And as an aura of desperation deepens among her peers, Janes determination to succeed grows. Because failure is the only way off the island, and for Jane, it is not an option.
