It’s like I keep stumbling into a dark room, searching for the switch to make things bright again...


Sade Hussein is starting her third year of high school, this time at the prestigious Alfred Nobel Academy boarding school, after being home-schooled. Misfortune has been a constant companion throughout her life, but even Sade doesn’t expect her new roommate, Elizabeth, to disappear after Sade’s first night. Or for people to think she had something to do with it.

With rumors swirling around her, Sade catches the attention of the girls collectively known as the Unholy Trinity and they bring her into their fold. Between learning more about them—especially Persephone, who Sade is inexplicably drawn to—and playing catchup in class, Sade already has so much on her plate. But when it seems people don't care enough about what happened to Elizabeth, it's up to her and Elizabeth's best friend, Baz, to investigate.

And then a student is found dead.

As Sade and Baz keep trying to figure out what’s going on, Sade realizes there’s more to Alfred Nobel Academy and its students than she thought. Secrets lurk around every corner and beneath every surface…Secrets that rival even her own.

Surprised Face with Open Mouth“This book really surprised me! It was not what I expected at all! However I did enjoy it more than I thought I would. This book justifies my decision not to allow my daughter to go away to a boarding school for a year! Wow!”

Surprised Face with Open Mouth“I found book to be engaging and very suspenseful. Near the end of the book, I found myself trudging through the chapters regarding the disappearance of student Elizabeth, along with Sade’s personal/familial backstory. I liked how Sade and her friend Baz bonded and went about together in solving issue of Sade’s new schoolmate Elizabeths’s whereabouts. I found the tactics they went about doing so far fetched; however, I appreciated their moxie and courage to do the right thing and seek justice for fellow young women students who suffered horrific harms committed by other male students. I was unsure character Persephone and gained a better appreciation of her personality along with empathy of her story and feelings for Sade. Who the real perpetrator was a surprise, but how they were not held accountable did not sit well with me. I feel some details near end of book could have been edited. Overall, I believe this was very good book.”
