An entertaining mystery/thriller set in an elite all-girls boarding school.
This was an entertaining mystery/thriller. It’s set in a prestigious all-girls boarding school in Virginia. It includes entitled girls, cliques, frenemies, secret societies, taboo relationships and a lot of the usual tropes. Despite all of that, the book is a quick read with plenty of twists and turns.
The book opens with a girl hanging from the front gates. The girls gather in stunned silence, wondering who it is. We then flash back to the first day of school and work our way forward. There are a lot of characters that don’t really add much to the story and I had a hard time remembering who they were and what their importance was. The book was uneven in parts, but not enough to detract too much from my enjoyment.
The main story, however, was engaging and kept me wondering. I figured the mystery out before it was revealed, but it was still interesting to see how the author got there. This is the second book I’ve read from this author and I enjoy her writing. I will definitely read more of her books in the future.
I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
