Curtis Sittenfeld's PREP meets THE SIXTH SENSE in this spine-tingling, unforgettable debut.
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.
All in all, The Last Academy was an enjoyable read. It was suspenseful, thrilling, and the end had my heart in my throat! I would suggest that if the blurb catches your interest, then go on and pick this one up. It is a fast paced thriller that will keep you on your toes and turning the pages late into the night!
Note: I recieved a review copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.
