Level 16 is a shocking, dystopian thriller which mashes together the disturbing world of The Handmaid's Tale and Black Mirror to stunning effect. Sixteen-year-old Vivien is trapped in Vestalis Academy, a prison-like boarding school, where the students are taught the finer points of "feminine virtues." They've been led to believe that all of the intense grooming regimens and strict sleep schedules they've endured have been in the service of making them ideal adoptive daughters for high-society families. Vivien keeps to herself and sticks her neck out for no one. Until she is reunited with Sophia - the former friend who betrayed her. Together the girls embark on a dangerous search to uncover the horrifying truth behind their imprisonment. Boasting a delightfully morbid premise and a chilling setup, Level 16 ratchets up the insidious sense of wrongness before unleashing a truly skin-crawling climax.
