Today I’m reviewing Night School: Genesis by C.J. Daugherty.
Summary from Goodreads: Allie Sheridan’s world is falling apart. Her brother’s run away from home. Her parents ignore her. And she’s just been arrested. Again.
This time her parents have had enough. They send Allie to Cimmeria Academy - far away from her London friends. The school is beautiful, and filled with gorgeous, ultra-wealthy teens who travel by private jet, and were raised by nannies.
Allie has never felt more of an outsider.
Instead of hating boarding school though, Allie begins to feel happy. She's slowly making friends. And there's Carter, a brooding loner with whom she feels an instant connection.
But when Allie is attacked late one night, the school suddenly begins to feel like a very dangerous place. Allie finds out that nothing at Cimmeria is what it seems.
And that she is not who she thought she was…
More after the jump!
Review: First off, as many others have astutely pointed out...this book is NOT paranormal although it tends to wind up on the paranormal shelf. It is more of a YA suspense in the vein of the Prep School Confidential series by Kara Taylor and Hex Hall series by Rachel Hawkins, although to be fair Hex Hall was indeed paranormal. This book was good, but it did drag a bit in the middle. However, once the action got started at the end it was a fast paced read that left me curious to find out what happens to Allie and co. in the next book. Would recommend to the 13+ crowd.
Rating: 4/5 Stars
