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…
Thank you to Bookouture for accepting my request to review this book via netgalley. I love YA and the cover of this book really drew me in.
This book follows Allie as she joins Cimmeria Acadamy. Cimmeria is a boarding school. Allie is sent there after she get thrown out of another school. Her parents are at their wits end and this is their only hope to help her.
When Allie first arrives she can’t stand the place. She feels like the odd one out but slowly she starts to make friends. She starts to enjoy her time at Cimmeria until one night, one night where Allie starts to realise this place isn’t quite what it seems.
I was so addicted to this book that I stayed up half the night reading this. I just couldn’t stop. I was so intrigued about what was going on at Cimmeria that I just had to keep going. C.J does such an excellent job of feeding you little bits of information at a time that you are left with no option but to keep reading.
I loved the mystery, the suspense. I loved trying to work out what was going on and failing miserably. There’s so much to love about this story and so much more to learn in the rest of the series.
I don’t currently have the next book in the series but I know it’s a case of when I will buy it not if. I can’t wait to read more of C.J’s work.
