So I read a book last night. Had to know what was going down in this novel, so putting it down was just not an option. It's called The School for Dangerous Girls by Eliot Schrefer. Here's the cover:

Summary: "Angela's parents think she's on the road to ruin because she's dating a "bad boy." After her behavior gets too much for them, they ship her off to Hidden Oak. Isolated and isolating, Hidden Oak promises to rehabilitate "dangerous girls." But as Angela gets drawn in further and further, she discovers that recovery is only on the agenda for the "better" girls. The other girls -- designated as "the purple thread" -- will instead be manipulated to become more and more dangerous . . . and more and more reliant on Hidden Oak's care." (Gracias again, Goodreads!)

Another great find for October, though this one is more gritty and realistic, as well as violent. So Angela has her secret of her past, as do each of the girls that go to the school. There are tons of ridiculous rules at the academy, and once you're deemed bad, you're gone. Never seen again by your peers. The secrets of the school start to slowly leak out, and then you're hooked on this novel.

Why so many rules? Where are the girls who disappear? And just how do they rehabilitate these "dangerous" girls?

Sound intriguing? It is.

The characters are whole, and well-written as well as thought out. I love the interaction, though wanted more descriptions when it came to the school itself. I also had a few questions as well, but the ending was satisfying, so I didn't dwell to hard on them. The plot was so fun with every twist and turn. Just when you think it's all been laid out and you know what's going on, BAM! another twist or secret comes along, and you just no longer are so sure.

In conclusion: Read it if you're into mysterious stories and boarding schools.


4/5 rolls
