Description

Storm Steele is an impossible child. Or so his parents believe thanks to the influence of his evil “step-monster.” Now Storm is being forced to attend the School of Possibilities for troubled youth. But Storm notices that something strange is going on at his new school. The students are not…normal. Soon he’s being spied on, followed by classmates—and worst of all, forced to accept the headmaster’s perfectly behaved daughter as his girlfriend. He can feel himself becoming more obedient, more like his classmates. Storm tries to resist, but he doesn’t understand how or why the school is controlling him. Can Storm escape—or will he be turned into a zombie of “good” behavior like everyone else around him? Praise for the School of Possibilities “Parkkola’s intellectual, satiric, and poetic writing keeps the narration fresh.” —Kouvolan Sanomat “Seita Parkkola builds an ambitious, personal work of art and wattaches it to tradition…This novel is not a cliché, not even in its two central ethical attitudes: that families should stick together and that difference is power.” —Parnasso
