Night School, the first book in a series of darkly romantic YA thrillers set in a British boarding school, is generating excitement around the world. When Allie Sheridan gets arrested—again—her parents have had enough. They send Allie to the Cimmeria Academy far away from her London friends. The school is beautiful, and filled with gorgeous, ultra-wealthy teens who travel by private jet, were raised by nannies, and only shop on 5th Avenue or Bond Street. As the school begins to seem like a very dangerous place, she must decide who she can trust if she’s going to find out what’s really going on.

I was very dissapointed with this book. Maybe because it sounded like it might be an awesome story, and I was expecting better than what it was. I mean it was okay, but I wouldn’t want to read it again. There were too many unnecessary details. Of course this is just my opinion. I also did not care too much for the main character.

It took me FOREVER to read this book because I couldn’t get into it. The story finally got pretty decent towards the end.

My rating for this book is going to be a 2. She gets a star just for writing the novel. That takes guts and dedication to do. The other star is for the potential this book could have had. I think this could have been written better though. Much better.

About the author /

I am happily married to the most wonderful husband a girl could pray for. I have a handsome son who is my world. I also work at the high school cafeteria in my town. I absolutely love my job. I am a small town girl who loves to read in my spare time. I like mostly young adult novels but I also enjoy fantasy, the occasional mystery, and, if I'm in the mood, a good romance.

    I’m really sad to see this one as a 2 star read. I’ve had a copy on my shelf for ages and I’ve never gotten around to it. Now I’m definitely not eager to check it out. Thanks for the honest review!

Hi. My name is Shannon and I like books. And photography. And video games. I use this space to talk about books and particpate in badassery. You can read a bit more about my awesomeness and how Twilight Sleep came to be (the name has absolutely NOTHING to do with the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer, contrary to popular belief) on the about page. :]
