Overview: 16 year old Allie Sheridan is in trouble for the final time. After her third arrest in a year, her parents ship her off to boarding school. This school is so far removed from London and any town, that no one knows it even exists. To make it more ominous, before she left Allie tried to tell her friends where she was going…and her mom literally pulls the phone line out of the jack. At the school she is set to read the rules and she learns there are no technology comforts allowed. She is in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by strangers with no way to call for help. She makes friends and falls in brief list but soon mysteries around the school, students, and herself start popping up and know one will tell her anything. Because the students know nothing of her or her background, they are afraid to tell her anything, and that puts everyone in more danger. During the school’s big summer dance, the school is set on fire, a girl is found dead and Allie is attacked. Problems pile up from there ending in some truths coming out and we find out what happened to Allie’s brother, who disappeared awhile before she left for school.
Review: Amazon recommended this book for me, and by the title I jumped to vampires being involved. I was way off base, but holy cow! The story kept me engrossed throughout, we kept getting pulled deeper and deeper into this giant conspiracy and never told what is going on or why Allie is being targeted. I NEEDED to know what was going to happen. Then my mind blew every time we did learn a small piece of information because you never see it coming. I’m getting ready to start the second book, eager to learn more.
