"Engrossing....the book is so well imagined that one cares about the school's fate from the start. And the characters are vivid as well, befitting what is, beneath its fast-paced surface, a thoughtful novel about boarding-school life." ( Booklist)

Lazy writing, utterly cliche story
borrowing from a half dozen books and movies, this very lame read will probably be made into a very lame movie. my advice is to skip it; nothing original happens here and the "mystery" is a yawn.

Two stars for the idea, which was good, but none for the execution, which was poor. Characters were unevenly developed. The linear presentation did not work with an active prologue, then very little action until the end of the book.
Zero stars for the narratior, who consistently mispronounced "nuclear" and kept pausing to drink during the second half.
This title is only recommended for those obsessed with the concept of private education.
