Overview

Mallory's life is falling apart. Her boyfriend was stabbed. He bled to death in her kitchen. Mallory was the one who stabbed him. But she can't remember what happened that night. She only remembers the fear . . .

When Mallory's parents send her away to a boarding school, she thinks she can escape the gossip and the threats. But someone, or something, has followed her. There's the hand that touches her shoulder when she's drifting off to sleep. A voice whispering her name. And everyone knows what happened. So when a pupil is found dead, Mallory's name is on their lips. Her past can be forgotten but it's never gone. Can Mallory live with that?



I have to admit, even though there seems to be so many books with the kid being shipped off to a boarding school and weird stuff happening, I can't help wanting to read this. I have a thing for boarding school books for some reason. Maybe I just always thought it would be cool to go to some boarding school where crazy stuff happens. I love a great mystery and the creepier the better. This sounds like a great creepy mystery. And honestly, I am sold on the cover alone!!  


I would love to see what books you just can't wait for this week. Leave me a link. I was totally going to use Clockwork Princess for my WoW, but I figure my previous post of the cover and all my spazzing pretty much covered that one.

    1. There is so much you can do with the whole boarding school scenario though. I think that's why it appeals to me. I love the whole loss of memory thing too.

I like boarding school books, so I'm hoping I'll like this one even more than I liked Fracture!! And that cover is definitely creepy in a cool kind of way. ;)

  12. Oooh ok wait.. so this is NOT the 2nd book in the Fracture series? (I didn't think it was a series but I thought I saw a tweet with someone saying this. But it makes more sense that it's another stand alone.) Anyways, the cover is really net and I love boarding school books too! They're just so much fun and we have no boarding or private school around here so they always fascinate me!

  13. I'm so glad to see that I'm not weird that I have a fascination with boarding school books. It seems that a lot of us do. There is actually a school near me that is a private school that I think may be a boarding school, but not sure.
