The Treatment By C.L. Taylor was a decent enough read that I really quite enjoyed.
I also took into account when reading, that this was aimed at a much younger audience than myself, so I have been slightly lenient in my rating as I feel there were things I noticed that would probably go over the heads of this books intended demographic.
I would say this is a read my twelve and thirteen-year-old boys would really enjoy, Myself being a mum in my forties, well let's just say I enjoyed this, while not overtaxing my brain overmuch.
So The Treatment is about sixteen-year-old Drew Finch and her actions when her younger brother Mason gets expelled from yet another school and sent to Norton House, a residential reform academy.
so After being followed by the mysterious Dr Cobey and receiving a strange message about the treatment, her brother is receiving while residing at Norton House. Drew decides to investigate herself by getting herself admitted as a pupil.
So as I said this was an enjoyable read that does what it says on the tin.
There were no great surprises here, This was more, the underdog saves the day type of tale.
Drew herself, well I felt a bit sorry for her bullied by her ex-best friend (which there was no real explanation for)
Does one thing wrong and then gets shipped off to a reform academy, I know she needs to be for the story to work but jeez, her mum, hardly mother of the year actions are they.
Drew herself seems to be quite a resilient girl with a bit of a kick-ass attitude, more so maybe than I would expect from someone who's been bullied so relentlessly.
But anyway she seems a very likeable pragmatic type of girl.
She teams up inside Norton with her roommate Mouse and the two try to coordinate an escape while steering clear of there other roomy Jude.
Jude is every mean girl cliche you can think off, horrid just for the sake of it. Shes even worse when Lacey, Drew's arch nemesis turns up like a bad penny and the two join forces to torment Drew.
I did find both Jude and Lacey to be slightly one dimensional in their behaviour.
So anyway to cut a long story short Drew strives to save the day, while rescuing her friends and brother along the way.
This is done in true kick-butt style with only the one extra unsurprising twist along the way.
So the wrap up of "The Treatment" I felt was a little bit rushed, I would have liked to have seen things eked out and explored in a little more depth.
But besides that, this is a great addition to the Young Adult/teen genre-leaning more heavily towards the Teen age group.
So I would definitely recommend this to the younger generation, It is a fun action packed clean read, that is well written and is sure to catch imaginations.
thank you to NetGalley, the publisher and the author for providing me with an Arc of "The Treatment" By C.L. Taylor this is my own honest unbiased opinion.

The Treatment is CL Taylor’s first novel in the Young Adult genre. I haven’t read any of her previous novels so I cannot draw a comparison with her adult fiction.

Drew Finch is a bit of a loner. Bullied relentlessly at school she hides behind different on line personalities. Her younger brother, Mason, has been sent to reform school because of unruly behaviour. She doesn’t mind too much that he is gone as the house is much quieter without him. One day she is approached by a woman who says she works at the Academy and hands her a note from Mason. The note pleads for Drew’s help to get him out as it’s not a reform school it’s a brainwashing treatment and he is next.
Drew is now determined to help Mason but who can she go to? Her mother won’t listen and her stepfather is the National Head of Academies. He is the one who sent Mason to the Residential Reform Academy. Drew must face her deepest fear to save her brother.

This was a good fast read. I enjoyed the whole concept of the story; unruly teens brainwashed to be fine upstanding citizens. Sounds pretty good from a parent point of view! They send away an anti-social, drug taking rebel and they return compliant, upstanding, eager to please and serve. No one complains so the process continues.

”If mason came back like Charlie, mum would be onto the police straight away.” “Would she?” She laughs dryly. “Andy and Julie love the new Charlie. His mum’s always going on about how polite and helpful he is now and how delighted she is she’s got her little boy back.”
“But he’s so weird. Sorry.” I pull a face. “I know he’s your boyfriend but he’s.....creepy. How can they not see that?”


”We’re turning antisocial teenagers into model citizens; young people who drained this country of its resources now actively want to contribute.”

I enjoyed Drew’s growth from quiet and unsure to a feisty leader who questioned authority. Helping her brother doesn’t come easy and she comes up against pitfall after pitfall but she never gives up, never loses hope.

There were a lot of things that happened in the story that I thought would be highly unlikely and think these may put off an older young adult audience who demand more depth in their characters and stories. However the story is perfect for the tween readers aged 10 – 14 years. It’s a clean read and the violence is minimal there is talk of drug use but no actual drug use. All the adults are either corrupt or too wishy washy to act and the teens are feisty and intelligent, which would appeal to this age group.

There is a lot to talk over in the story with themes of troubled teens, brainwashing, shock treatment, family bonds, the burden of losing a parent, bullying and being yourself.

The story ties up well however being told entirely in the first person by Drew it left me with a few unanswered questions. ( )
