The Institute Overview

In The Institute by Stephen King, doctors in a world-wide secret organization harnessed the power of children with psychic abilities to eliminate alleged threats to world peace. These children were kidnapped, used as test subjects, and eventually died in their forced service. Two unlikely heroes — Luke Ellis, a child genius, and Avery Dixon, a socially inept boy with exceptionally strong telepathic abilities — used their unique abilities to bring the illegal organization down. Themes in the novel include the power of the mind, the goodness of a flawed America, and psychological warfare.
