Editorial Reviews

VOYA
As the story opens, Brittany Corin, a girl from the poor side of town, has been mysteriously enrolled against her will at the exclusive Dunhaven Academy. The school is stereotypically creepy, of course, as is the town of Hobb's Point. The rich youth are snooty, and the town teens are Neanderthals. Predictably readers learn that Dunhaven students tend to disappear periodically and that they occasionally turn up dead. When Brittany finds herself accused of gruesome crimes that she has not committed, she must enlist the help of other Dunhaven students to prove her innocence and to stop the encroaching horror. Moore is the author of such well-received adult horror novels as Under the Overtree (Dorchester, 2000) and the Stoker Award-nominated Serenity Falls (2003). It is difficult to understand what possessed him to allow this poorly done book to see publication. Although it is ostensibly intended for an audience aged fourteen and up, the novel reads like an inferior entry in R. L. Stine's Goosebumps series. It could easily have been a competent young adult horror novel, but what makes it significantly less than that is the poor quality of Moore's prose. One of many examples of bad writing in the book is "Casey was the furthest thing from Brittany's mind right then, and if she had noticed the fact that he wasn't in her thoughts, it would have suited her just fine." This novel, sadly, will do nothing to maintain Moore's reputation or enhance his career. VOYA CODES: 2Q 3P J S (Better editing or work by the author might have warranted a 3Q; Will appeal with pushing; Junior High, defined as grades 7 to 9; Senior High, defined as grades 10 to 12). 2004, Dorchester, 208p., pb. Ages 12 to 18.

    Teen Horror

    Being the new kid in a boarding school and knowing no one can be scary enough without adding in mysterious disappearances and suicide. Unfortunately, Brittany Corin is faced with both. Her close mouthed stance regarding her past began as a way of shielding herself and her troubled past from scrutiny, but rumors are even worse than the truth, and then people begin disappearing, and being Miss Enigma makes Brittany a suspect in the mystery. She is even more so when her name is cited as the culprit in a suicide note. Forced from her solitude to clear herself of the accusations, Brittany must save herself and her classmates from a devilish nightmare that can use her own darkness against her as its chief weapon. ................... *** Subtle horror and Dante inspired images interweave with the ordinary to crescendo in a psychological nightmare that has a message for those who have ears to hear. ***

    engaging preadolescent to early teen horror tale

    While raising his younger sister Brittany, Chris Corin decides to send her to the exclusive Dunhaven Academy so that she can receive a quality education. Brittany hates the place as she fits in nowhere and with just about no one except a couple of nerds. Within a few days at the place she learns first hand the classifications that define the local youth caste system. Newbies are like her new students; Schoolies are those who have attended the academy for years; finally a Townie is those from the nearby town of Hobbs Point.--- When students begin to disappear and a Townie turned Schoolie commits suicide, rumors spread that Brittany is the cause. She decides to clear her name, but needs help and receives this from several Schoolies including two adversaries. As they begin to dig deeper, Brittany¿s most dangerous enemy has turned to evil summoning something from the beyond. Only Brittany if she can conquer her fears stands a chance of defeating this antagonist and its monster.--- This is an engaging preadolescent to early teen horror tale that emphasizes the struggle to belong when one is an outsider, but does so inside a mystery that ultimately takes a twist into the horror genre. The story line grips young readers as they will appreciate how Brittany stands up for herself and her friends against nasty fellow students (think the snob beauties at the prom in Barrymore¿s Never Been Kissed), bullying Townie, and a malevolence that threatens her life and that of her pals. Youthful fans will appreciate this fine tale as long as they are not attending a sleep over academy.--- Harriet Klausner
