Night School by C.J. Daugherty

Sometimes school is murder.

Allie Sheridan's world is falling apart. She hates her school. Her brother has run away from home. And she's just been arrested.


This time her parents have finally had enough. They cut her off from her friends and send her away to a boarding school for problem teenagers.

But Cimmeria Academy is no ordinary school. Its rules are strangely archaic. It allows no computers or phones. Its students are an odd mixture of the gifted, the tough and the privileged. And then there's the secretive Night School, whose activities other students are forbidden even to watch.

When Allie is attacked one night the incident sets off a chain of events leading to the violent death of a girl at the summer ball. As the school begins to seem like a very dangerous place, Allie must learn who she can trust. And what's really going on at Cimmeria Academy.
 I should start off by saying that i have never read a book by C.J. Daugherty before, but i was drawn to this book based on one review i had seen on youtube. i was eager to find out more and i found it in my library and immediately picked it up. i also quite like the conver of the book, i did not like it at first but it has certainly grown on me. 
i am not going to lie, if a book is based in a boarding school, i am immediately interested. and i loved the direction this book took whenever it came to the plot. with every twist and turn the story went i was always interested and loved finding out what was going to happy next. because of the plot, i could not put this book down!
The main character Allie, really surprised me. i thought that she would be a very annoying character and i felt this would happen with every character in the book. However, i was wrong. i feel that the characters had a surprising amount of depth to them and i loved finding out more about them. i was completely comfortable with the characters and i became quite attached to them. 

i was quite shocked at this book and i didn't think i would like it as much as i did. i would definitely recommend this to people who are into mystery and also if theyre into books about boarding schools, because i know i can't be the only one!
