Cyanide Smile: A Thriller
When Vera, a bitter teenage girl, is caught up in a grafitti spraying incident, she's sentenced to community service in a nearby mental asylum. There at the elusive Rootworth, she encounters a brilliant yet maniacally unhinged doctor, and is trapped in a grisly web of horror. Yet behind the scenes of what looks like Vera's inevitable demise exists the patients of Rootworth, casualties of the doctor's twisted philosophy: that the insane are really just the gifted. Written by New Yorker Gaby Giangola when she was 13, CYANIDE SMILE is a new twist on the psychological thriller, from an author possessing a uniquely frightening voice.
