Things haven't been going well at Riverside Adolescent Psychiatric Center, and they're about to get worse.
When Norman Chase opened a treatment center for troubled teens and started billing insurance companies for pills and talk, he was convinced he'd found the perfect business. His little hospital was spitting out cash like a giant ATM, transforming Norman from a down-on-his-luck drug rep to a multimillionaire CEO in a Ferrari. There were only two problems: his patients and his staff .
When their parents' failings deliver Chris Dewberry, Russell Moss and Sierra McGuire to the center, the three teenagers hatch a plot to relieve Norman of some of his wealth. With the click of a camera shutter they put their plan in motion and take off with $200,000 of his money, with hilariously unpredictable results.
Set in Richmond and Williamsburg, Virginia, and on Ocracoke Island, North Carolina, The Loony Bin Blues is the story of a crime gone wrong that turns out to be just the therapy its young perpetrators and their victim need.
