Overview

Reeling from a terrifying assault that leaves him physically harmed and psychologically shattered, twenty-year-old Brad Land feels that he'll never be "normal" again. When Brad's brother enrolls at Clemson University and pledges a fraternity, Brad, desperate to belong, follows. What happens there makes for a riveting, shocking read. Enduring torturous late-night hazing, heartbreaking estrangement from his brother, and, finally, the death of a fellow pledge, Brad must weigh total alienation from this new found community against accepting a form of brutality he already knows too well.
