About the Book:
Perched atop a hill in the tiny town of Marchburg, Virginia, The Goode School is a prestigious prep school known as a Silent Ivy. The boarding school of choice for daughters of the rich and influential, it accepts only the best and the brightest. Its elite status, long-held traditions and honor code are ideal for preparing exceptional young women for brilliant futures at Ivy League universities and beyond. But a stranger has come to Goode, and this ivy has turned poisonous. In a world where appearances are everything, as long as students pretend to follow the rules, no one questions the cruelties of the secret societies or the dubious behavior of the privileged young women who expect to get away with murder. But when a popular student is found dead, the truth cannot be ignored. Rumors suggest she was struggling with a secret that drove her to suicide. But look closely…because there are truths and there are lies, and then there is everything that really happened.
This book was fast paced and VERY suspenseful, it's very well written. It has a very unique plot and I really loved reading every single word. It COULD have easily been a four or five star read BUT, as I find with most of Ms. Ellison's books, it was just WAY too over the top.
Tragic subject matter is covered in this book, bullying and suicide to name but two, and J.T. Ellison handled it with sensitivity while keeping it creepy. The author also did a great job with the main characters point of view and the little intricacies of Ash's character are told with such an expert hand. The short chapters and wonderful writing kept me reading and looking forward to what was next. The author does a fantastic job of letting the reader feel and experience the uncomfortableness while still drawing them in.
Thank you NetGalley, J.T. Ellison and HARLEQUIN - MIRA for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
