Allie Sheridan's world is falling apart. She hates her school. Her brother has run away from home. And she's just been arrested. Again.
This time her parents have finally had enough. They cut her off from her friends and send her away to a boarding school for problem teenagers.
But Cimmeria Academy is no ordinary school. Its rules are strangely archaic. It allows no computers or phones. Its students are an odd mixture of the gifted, the tough and the privileged. And then there's the secretive Night School, whose activities other students are forbidden even to watch.
When Allie is attacked one night the incident sets off a chain of events leading to the violent death of a girl at the summer ball. As the school begins to seem like a very dangerous place, Allie must learn who she can trust. And what's really going on at Cimmeria Academy.
OK. So, Scout's Honour that the GORGEOUS COVER isn't the only reason I want to read Night School. Promise. But I mean, come on! Her hair! 'Envy' doesn't quite cover it. But, really, it is the reason Night School got my attention, and it is the reason it stands out (for me) amongst the other paranormal-boarding-school type books around. So, yep, I'm shallow. So what? It'll look pretty on my shelves :D
But mysterious night school? Sinister boarding school rules, mystery and danger? Oh yeah, I'm all over that, thank you very much! Roll on, January!
What are YOU waiting on, my lovely peoples?
