This time her parents have finally had enough. They cut her off from her friends and send her away to a boarding school for problem teenagers.
But 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, whose activities other students are forbidden even to watch.
When Allie is attacked one night the incident sets off a chain of events leading to the violent death of a girl at the summer ball. As the school begins to seem like a very dangerous place, Allie must learn who she can trust. And what's really going on at Cimmeria Academy.
Allie is a bad ass, she hates her school, her brother has run away and she keeps getting in trouble with the police, her parents finally have enough and send her to Cimmeria Academy a boarding school for wayward teens, at first Allie argues back but quickly she begins to like Cimmeria Academy with its strange ways and even has two boys fighting for her attention Sylvain and Carter.
I have to be completely honest, I started Night School expecting another paranormal story filled with werewolves, witches or vampires and spent the majority of the book trying to guess when said creature would finally appear, what I actually got was a nice refreshing change instead of your very common paranormal story Night School blew me away with a story full of mystery, suspense, lies and secrets. Cimmeria Academy is definitely not what it seems.
The world that Daugherty has made is very real and very scary the true story of Cimmeria only starts to become apparent near the end of the book, leaving me eager to read book two. I loved Night School even though I am still sat here trying to work out exactly what was going on, the second book in the series Legacy is due for release early 2013 and I can't wait to delve back in and catch up with Allie.
