Dark Room Etiquette by Robin Roe (HarperCollins) - moved from May 2022.
Sixteen-year-old Sayers Wayte has everything—until he’s kidnapped by a man who takes it all away. A man who tells him that the privileged life he’s been living is based on a lie.

To survive, Sayers must forget the world he once knew, and play the part his abductor has created for him. But as time goes by, the line between fact and fiction blurs, and Sayers begins to wonder if he can escape without losing himself entirely.
