What it is about- There were kidnappings and murders committed at a boarding school, Egllingham Academy, but the mysteries were never solved.  Stevie is a true crime enthusiast and she applies at Ellingham Academy to solve the decades old mystery.

POV- Third person from Stevie’s and informations from the past from different point of views

Happy ending– no, major cliffhanger 

Funny parts- some 

Sad parts- some 

Realistic scale- 2/5

Pick this up if- You want a good young adult mystery novel. You want good representation of characters with anxiety and depression. You want YA books with LGBTQA+ representation. You like the boarding school mystery trope. You like the isolated murder/thriller where one of the people in the isolated area is the killer. 

Don’t pick this up if- You don’t like it when the mysteries aren’t solved in the first book (it’s a trilogy). You don’t like slow beginnings in books. 

Pages- 416

Audiobook- 10h 12m

Narrators- Kate Rudd

The whole series is on Scribd.

I won’t be writing reviews for the rest of the series because that would give away the mystery.


I get asked how I read so many books. This is how I do it:
Kindle Unlimited (definitely worth it for romance readers)
Audible (2 free audiobooks for your first month)
Prime membership allows me to get knew books at my doorstep fast (get the first month free). I have Prime Student which comes with a 6 month free trial.
I also had Audible Escape but it got cancelled 😦
