Rejected by his family, Reese "Ratt" Mason is a 16-year-old runaway squatting in the warehouse district of Acis Island. He might have died of exposure were it not for the efforts of the Ophion Foundation. They rescued him, offering free board, meals, and a weekly paycheck to participate in an ongoing parapsychology experiment called "Project Ithaca." According to the program's Director, the data they uncover could one day save the world. Ratt eagerly accepts, unaware of the project's true purpose.

The experiments fundamentally alter Ratt's mind and body, cursing him with an uncontrollable psychic connection to fire. There are many other boys like him in the project, each an example of the potential horrors lurking in the human mind. Worst of all, Project Ithaca turns out to be a prison-like environment that molds the strong into predators and the weak into prey.

With nothing to lose and nowhere else to go, Ratt must make a crucial decision: either accept the grim reality of his new life, or find a way to break free.

Excellent work for setting the mood of the novel.  This is a cover that will attract readers.  One reason for that is your use of light, your color palette and the model choice (stock photo choice).
