What is this prep school preparing them for?
Camden Fisher arrives at boarding school haunted by a falling-out with her best friend back home. But the manicured grounds of Lethe Academy are like nothing Cam has ever known. There are gorgeous, preppy boys wielding tennis rackets, and circles of girls with secrets to spare. Only . . . something is not quite right. One of Cam’s new friends mysteriously disappears, but the teachers don’t seem too concerned. Cam wakes up to strangers in her room, who then melt into the night. She is suddenly plagued by odd memories, and senses there might be something dark and terrible brewing. But what? The answer will leave Cam—and readers—stunned and breathless, in this thrilling debut novel.
This was actually a pretty interesting read. The journey through the book was full of questions. Questions about the Academy, the characters and the disappearances. Through the book threads were woven together and by the conclusion of the novel all my questions were answered.
At times I felt the characters were a little juvenile in their actions and I didn’t fully understand why certain plot points were added when they didn’t seem to make sense to the storyline. Ultimately, they were foreshadowing for the wrap up of the storyline and the conclusion of the arc of the plot.
I had a suspicion about halfway through about what was happening and turns out I was partially right. Overall, I enjoyed this book and the way the plot progressed. There was a little bit of romance but I was more interested in the mystery and the friendships. A book that will keep you guessing about what is happening at the mysterious Lethe Academy.
Keep Calm and Read On,
