Allie's world is falling apart...
She hates her school. Her brother has run away. And she's just been arrested.
Now her parents are sending her away to a boarding school where she doesn't know a soul.
But instead of hating her new school, Allie finds she's happy there. She's making friends. And then there's Sylvain, a suave French student who openly flirts with her. And Carter, the brooding loner who seems to have her back.
Soon, though, Allie discovers Cimmeria Academy is no ordinary school. Nothing there is as it seems. And her new friends are hiding dangerous secrets.

I was super excited to start this. Once I saw that cover and read the synopsis, I knew that I would have to somehow get my hands on this book. I love a book with plenty of mystery and a MC that sounds like she can hold her ground. I feel that after the long list of meh books I was reading for a while, this one was just what the doctor ordered.
Allie was instantly a character that I liked. She didn't mind much what others thought of her and spoke what she thought, even if it was a little rude. Feisty, strong, and stubborn, she made up a great character. What I loved was that she was independent and didn't need some dashing young fellow to help her stand up right.
Speaking of guys, I have to say that I loved the romance in this one. It definitely took a back seat throughout the entire novel. But when the romance came across the page, boy, was it something else. Honestly, I didn't know who to root for at first. Both Sylvain (sexy French dude) and Carter (sexy British dude) were appealing in their own ways and had their downfalls, which made them dimensional characters. Definitely fantastically created characters!
While the plot didn't have a lot of action and adventure, it made up in mystery. Lots and lots of mystery. I was constantly guessing what could possibly be going on, but each and every time, I was wrong. After a while, I didn't even bother. I couldn't have guessed in a million years how this book would have ended, and I liked that very much.
Lovers of mystery and odd stuff will love Night School! Cute, sassy, dangerous, and sexy--this book had it all! I just--so much love!
