When everyone is lying to you, who do you trust?
Allie Sheridan is a troubled middle-class girl. Her life spiraled out of control after her brother ran away. Her parents have no interest her, or anything for that matter. And she’s just been arrested. Again.
When she’s sent away to Cimmeria Academy, she thinks it’s just a kind of posh reform school. That all she has to do is fit in for a while and bide her time until it all blows over.
She couldn’t be more wrong.
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, a secret society whose activities other students are forbidden to even mention.
Following the death of one of the students at the summer ball, Allie begins to discover that the school and her family are involved in something much darker than she ever imagined. Why did Allie’s parents lie to her? Who are her enemies?
What’s really going on at Cimmeria Academy?
