The Institute: A Novel 

From number one New York Times Bestselling author Stephen King is the most exciting and memorable story children have ever faced in evil It – Publication as well as the second part of Itthe film ends up in theaters.

In the middle of the night, intruders in a house on a quiet street in suburban Minneapolis are murdering Luke Ellis' parents and loading him into a black SUV. The surgery takes less than two minutes. Luke will wake up at the institute in a room that looks exactly like his own, except that there is no window. And there are other doors in front of his door, behind which there are other children with special talents – telekinesis and telepathy – who came to this place just like Luke: Kalisha, Nick, George, Iris, and 10-year-old Avery Dixon. They are all in the front half. Others, Luke learns, have graduated "Back Half," "like the cockroach motel," says Kalisha. "They check in, but they do not check out."

In this most sinister institution, the director, Mrs. Sigsby, and her staff relentlessly devote themselves to extracting the power of their extraordinary gifts from these children. There are no scruples here. If you join, you will get tokens for the machines. If you do not, the punishment is brutal. As each new victim disappears into Back Half, Luke becomes more and more desperate to come out and get help. But nobody ever escaped the institute.

As psychologically scary as Fire starter, and with the spectacular childpower of It. The Institute Stephen King's dramatic story of good versus evil in a world where the good guys do not always win.
