It was Sunday after church, and I was looking for something to read. I casually picked up my kindle and selected this book. WOW...I literally could not put this book down after that! Seriously, while eating dinner with the family it was on the table and I could not help but continue the story. Every time I tried to set it down it ended up right back in my hands until I finished it that evening.
There seems to be a mix of reviews about this book. I can only speak from my experience and say that I loved the Gothic creepy feel to the book. I felt the author did a fabulous job of keeping the secrets of this school a mystery. It kind of reminded me of a modern day "Turning of the Screw" in a very good way. I loved many of the characters, and there were some of the expected regulars to show up; you can't have a boarding school without the mandatory group of mean girls. However, there were many more well rounded characters with fascinating twists.
I cannot wait for the next book in this series to become available. It is one that I will be waiting for with baited breath.
