Webster: The Unhinged Edition by Anne Wentworth is an intriguing book. Webster Harmon is gifted. Will he misuse his gifts to protect Beth? I gave it five stars.
Webster was weakened by his stay at the mental ward. "The past two weeks had mowed me down. If it hadn’t been for Bhotu, I might not have come through being on the psych unit. Bhotu had kept me level, sane. Still, the aseptic hospital environment with its facade of caring and reality of harsh had worn down my armor."
His goal is to protect Beth from Tandy, the "dragon" running the group home where they stayed. On his way from the hospital, he met Reggae and he became part of their "family".
The characters are well drawn and the storyline is poignant. Sadly, I believe this happens far too often in reality. Teenagers simply fall through the cracks in the existing system.
I received a complimentary copy from the author. That did not change my opinion for this review.
