The School for Dangerous Girls
By Eliot Schrefer
Angela Cardenas is having a really rough year: her parents don’t pay any attention to her, her relationship with her boyfriend is annoyingly hot and cold, and she’s given up on school. Things get worse when her beloved abuelo dies in an accident that Angela could have prevented. Out of options, Angela’s parents send her off to the mysterious Hidden Oak, a boarding school with a reputation for rehabilitating “dangerous” female juvenile delinquents. Things aren’t what they seem at Hidden Oak, though, and the faculty members turn out to be more dangerous than the students. Angela gets caught up in uncovering the school’s secret past and liberating herself from Hidden Oak’s violent control.
This book is extra entertaining, and Angela is a fantastic protagonist!
