The Second Place Sister (The Hamlin #1)
by T. Hamlin
On the face of it, the NewYou Clinic for Adolescent Addiction is a model for rehabilitation and therapy, taking in troubled young girls and helping them overcome their terrible urges. When Stephanie has Tori framed, and labeled a drug addict, the conspirators arrange for Tori's incarceration at the clinic. Outside, Stephanie begins to work on her family, remaking them to fit her perverse vision of perfection. Meanwhile, inside the clinic, Tori learns that rehabilitation can be very humiliating, indeed, but can lead to new relationships that will help her to persevere.
When she's returned to her family, wholly different, Tori must face the changes that her sister has wrought on her family, and herself, facing the terrible truth of what has happened to her. The sisters, and their family, will need to come to terms with not only the changes to Tori, but the changes within themselves. Through trials they never thought to experience, the Hamlin's will need to find the way forward, learning that the power of a family's love is often times the greatest weapon against a terrible evil bent on submission and domination.
