Overview

Welcome to your new school, Allie.
Welcome to your new life.

The gates locked into place with a shudder.

Allie Sheridan 's world has fallen apart. Her family's in tatters, school after school has kicked her out for bad behavior, and she's just been arrested. Again.

Sent away to a strict boarding school, Allie expects a prison. Instead, she finds Cimmeria Academy is something very different. Its students are an odd mixture of the gifted and the rich, though Allie is sure she is neither. Its rules are stern but arcane, and among its students is an elite group in a mysterious organization. They call it Night School.

Soon Allie finds that, especially at night, Cimmeria is alive with secrets. That everybody lies. And as the school begins to seem like a very dangerous place, she must decide who she can trust if she's going to find out what's really going on.

In Night School, C. J. Daugherty creates a world of stirring mystery, danger, romance, and thrills.

Editorial Reviews

ALA Booklist
Daugherty knows exactly where she wants to take us, and soon enough, readers will be hooked. Ultimately, both the story and the writing itself are full of surprises.
Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
A fast-paced read with solid plotting and plenty of intrigue, this novel provides a diverting, straightforward summertime thrill.
VOYA - Suanne B. Roush
Allie Sheridan used to be an A-student and a great girl, but since her brother's disappearance she has been in trouble. Her last scrape with the law is the final straw for her parents, who ship her off to Cimmeria Academy, a co-ed boarding school in an isolated area over two hours north of London. Allie does not want to be at the school, especially since it is summer and she finds out that she has to wear uniforms; there are no TVs, cell phones, computers, or iPods allowed; and there is a long list of "The Rules," infractions of which result in Saturday morning work detention. The first night at dinner she meets Sylvain, one of the most popular boys, who seems to be interested in her. Her first couple days at Cimmeria are rough, but she gets into the routine and decides to work at becoming the student she used to be. At detention, she meets Carter West, a scholarship student who grew up on the campus. As the term progresses, Allie finds there is more to Cimmeria than meets the eye; there is something called "Night School" that trains special students in war games to prepare them for taking positions in prestigious schools and companies after graduation. There is also a mysterious person named Nathaniel who is a threat to the school, and Allie is his target. As Allie tries to unravel what is happening, she learns that she is not who she thought she was and neither are her parents. Teens who like boarding school fiction or suspense novels will enjoy this story and will clamor for the rest of the series. Reviewer: Suanne B. Roush
Kirkus Reviews
A smart, engaging heroine and gripping, suspenseful plot trump this series opener's all-too-predictable romance. Angry and upset over the loss of her brother, Christopher, Allie's vandalism gets her expelled from school--again. Her exasperated parents pack her off to Cimmeria Academy, a boarding school in the remote English countryside. Puzzlingly, her classmates aren't troubled youth like Allie but the gifted offspring of wealthy families educated at Cimmeria for generations. Everyone, especially Allie, wonders why she's there--and why the school's hottest guys are smitten with her: smooth, uber-male Sylvain and smoldering, bad-boy Carter. Although readers can plot the triangle's romantic trajectory early on, other narrative twists and turns remain pleasurably unpredictable. Cimmeria's as much an enigma as its students. They're not to enter the woods after dark; computers and cellphones are forbidden. A few, Sylvain and Carter included, attend the mysterious Night School but refuse to discuss it. Even Allie's best friend, Jo, keeps secrets from her. Frustratingly, whenever love or attraction is in the air, Alllie's gutsy leadership dissolves into old-fashioned passivity (somewhere between Bella and Katniss on the heroine-autonomy spectrum). But when the summer ball ends horrifically, Allie's ready to take action. Hints of tantalizing plot twists to come will have readers panting for the next installment. (Romantic thriller. 14 & up)
School Library Journal
12/01/2013
Gr 8 Up—Rebellious London teen Allie Sheridan, 16, has just gotten arrested-again. It's the last straw for her parents, and Allie is shipped off to a mysterious boarding school, Cimmeria Academy. The institution caters to a select crowd of children from elite families; the protagonist has no idea why she's been sent to live among them. Nothing is what it seems at this old-fashioned academy and Allie will have to sort through the lies and dangers to discover the truth about the school, her classmates, and her own family. This supernatural thriller covers fairly well-trod ground: teen relationships, love triangles, and secrets. While the author evokes a suspenseful gothic-style tone, the novel fails to have the tight story arc and writing structure needed to maintain the spooky mood. The first in a series, this book serves to set up intrigue and introduce readers to the main cast of characters, but it leaves many questions unanswered. This title will appeal most to fans of Gabriella Poole's Secret Lives (Hodder & Stoughton, 2009) and Richelle Mead's Bloodlines (Razorbill, 2011).—Stephanie Whelan, New York Public Library

    Night School by C.J. Daugherty
    Book One of the Night School series
    Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
    Publication Date: May 21, 2013
    Rating: 4 stars
    Source: eARC from Edelweiss

    Summary (from Goodreads):

    Allie's world is falling apart...

    She hates her school. Her brother has run away. And she's just been arrested.

    Again.

    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.


    What I Liked:

    This book was not what I expected! To be completely honest, from I heard about this book, I was totally expecting something paranormal. This book is NOT a paranormal fiction book. It's, like, mystery? Or thriller. But NOT fantasy or paranormal or science fiction.

    Anyway. I really enjoyed this book! I was hooked, as soon as Allie got to Cimmeria (which was not too long into the book). The immediate beginning was a bit boring and slightly confusing, but once Allie actually leaves home and moves in at Cimmeria, things start to pick up.

    Throughout the book, I was waiting and waiting for the paranormal aspect of the book to make itself appear, but readers never get any paranormal aspect (obviously, because there is none!). BUT, the mysterious scenes and events of the book did not let down. What is Gabriel doing? Why is Sylvain, the smooth French guy, so perfect and always coming to Allie's rescue?

    Things don't add up, and Allie has to discover what is going on, piece by piece, disaster by disaster. I think sometimes Allie overlooks some things, but that seems like part of her and her personality, and not necessarily a flaw in her character. I think Allie's spunk and inquisitiveness is refreshing, and not necessarily annoying.

    The plot itself is good, in my opinion. The story progresses slowly, but unlike some books, I thought the slow pace was not a negative aspect of the book. It was sometimes predictable, but I liked the story nonetheless. The actual Night School part of the book is kind of cool, but the idea of it is not new. Same with the epic showdown at the end, and the motives of the villains of the story. Nothing new, but still enjoyable to read.

    The romance was actually quite nice, despite the fact that there is a love triangle. Allie is not torn between Sylvain and Carter - there is an obvious choice that Allie makes. After meeting BOTH males, readers will know exactly which one Allie will "choose". Look at the characterization: one of the males is a static character, the other is dynamic. Authors often put the heroine with a hero that dynamic, like she is. Very rarely is the static, non-changing hero the true love interest.

    All of that is fine by me, because in this case, the male I really liked was the one for Allie! Poor guy - he is judged too harshly. And the other guy - I knew he was a creep, from the first time readers are introduced to him.

    The ending was rushed (more on that below), but good. Things are happy, and the heroine and the hero (love interest) ended up together. I liked the ending, even if things ended a little la-dee-dah.

    I really only had problems with a few things, and they weren't that bad. I felt like the ending was extremely rushed. We come to the climax, and BOOM! The ending is upon us. It's almost like there is very little falling action, and the author goes straight to the denouement. This wasn't a huge thing with me, but it was something I noticed that stuck out.


    What I Did Not Like:

    Also, I hate at the end of a story when the heroine or hero gets injured, blacks out, and then we as readers are welcomed back into the story when the heroine/hero comes around from being unconscious.

    The reader misses everything happened between the big climax and when the big climax was over. Instead, we have to hear it like the heroine/hero - from the words of other characters.

    This is a first person point-of-view problem, but it's also something author chooses to do. It makes me feel like the author does not want to write the rest of the big climax scene, and just shuts down the scene with the heroine going out cold.

    So, not a gigantic problem, but still bothersome. Neither of the things I described detracted from my overall love for this book!


    Would I Recommend It:

    Totally! It's not fantasy or paranormal or science fiction - but fans of those genres will still LOVE this book. I think it's quite the unique read! Even if it is a little predictable.


    Rating:

    4 stars. This is a great book! I cannot wait to read the rest of the series!

    What Happens in Night School...Stays in Night School. - I really enjoyed this book, though I must admit that it wasn't quite what I was expecting. I understood this to be a paranormal or urban fantasy thriller, and while it contained elements of suspense and the unseen, it was what I would classify as a general thriller. However, this book grabbed my attention from the beginning and held on straight through the sequel. I definitely recommend this book for anyone enjoying a suspenseful or thrilling read with a bit of intrigue.

    This book is awesome. Sure it's about private school and kids with tons of cash, but it's more of a mystery. There's something dark behind it and everyone is not who they seem. Although there are some relationships, they don't go too far into inappropriate stuff and the characters don't break up at the most random times. The characters are realistic and they all have their ups and downs. It's a great, fabulous book that will pull an all-nighter.

    'Night School' is the first book in a fast paced new YA mystery

    'Night School' is the first book in a fast paced new YA mystery series that follows our heroine, Allie Sheridan, as she finds herself shipped away to a private boarding school named Cimmeria Academy. Ever since her brother disappeared, Allie's been getting into lots of trouble - getting arrested, kicked out of schools, and fighting with her parents. Her parent's solution is to send Allie to a boarding school in the middle of nowhere - where there's no connection with the outside world and where she knows absolutely nobody. Things start looking up for Allie when she makes new friends, has the hottest guy in school interested in her, and finds herself liking the strange world at Cimmeria. Only this isn't a normal school and Allie's going to find out that there are lots of secrets at Cimmeria - ones that are dangerous and that concern her very life.

    This was a superb thriller and a captivating first book in a series that promises to be addicting. The plot wasn't completely unique, with the setting of a private boarding school with the requisite snobby rich kids, the outcasts, and the harsh rumors - but the author made it into something so much more with a depth that had me hooked. The book takes a little while to get going, so it felt a little boring and slow at the beginning. Once the story takes off though - I literally couldn't stop reading. I found myself completely engrossed in the story and I had to find out what was really going on. There are magnificent twists and turns throughout the book - clear up to the ending - which definitely leaves you shaking your head and trying to figure everything out. The characters were interesting and well written. I liked Allie as the main character. She's broken about her brother and doesn't know how to deal with it - so she gets into trouble. You can see that she's upset and guarded, but eventually she lets her walls down and we get a glimpse of who she really is. I'm hoping that her character will continue to grow in the next book, which seems inevitable given how this one ended. Of course there's some romance in the book, even a bit of a love triangle - but I don't think that it interferes or overshadows the main story line. The guys add to the mystery of the school and what's happening, so I found that exciting. The plot was intricately drawn out in a series of mysterious events, thrilling adventures, and serious twists and turns. Up until the end, I was still reeling from everything going on - and the author hits you again with more surprises (which I loved). The ending definitely leaves you begging for more - I can't wait to see what will happen in the next book and how things will go from here. It's an intriguing plot because there's a lot shrouded in mystery - especially about the school and what happens there - but the author expertly avoids giving away too much at a time. I was still trying to figure out what was really up when the answer is revealed - and I didn't see that one coming. I really love thriller and mysteries, especially in young adult fiction. I don't think that there's enough of them out there and this series is definitely a great one to fill that void. I highly recommend this book to fans of YA thrillers and awesome mysteries, as I am already anxiously awaiting the next installment.

    Disclosure: I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

    I picked this book cause the cover and synopsis caught my eye. I had high hopes for this book and unfortunately, it let me down.




    1. Writing. First off, writing is good. Everything flowed well from chapter to chapter. Not once did I feel lost or confused. It was able  to step inside the characters shoes easily and quickly.




    2. Love triangle. UGH! Not only was is depressing watching this character go back and forth but it got annoying. One minute she was hanging out one with one guy and the next, the other guy. This did not make me happy.




    3. Predictable. The reason I could not get into the book as I wanted, was cause it felt like I had already been there before. I knew how the whole plot would go down not even half-way through. And that folks, killed it for me. The only reason why I finished it was to find out exactly what Night school was. And yes, I was right about that too.




    4. Growth. I'm a bit miffed of how this character grew up. While, I'm glad that she ask questions and broke rules, she became to predictable in all of her moves. I kept wanting her to surprise me or do something different. Instead it was like watching a horror movie and yelling at the girl," DON'T DO IT! DON''T GO IN THERE!"




    5. End. The ending got better and got me into the book. I felt like once the secret was out, lots of things made sense. It weaved well with the beginning of the story with her parents and brother. I like to read the next book to see what will happen next.




    Overall, Night School is a good book. It did take a  while for me to get into it and once I did, I enjoyed it.  Taking boarding school to a whole new level, Night School holds secrets. A good deal of fun, Night School is good.

    I went into this book knowing nothing about it other than the su

    I went into this book knowing nothing about it other than the summary. One of my groups on Goodreads selected it for a monthly read, and I thought it sounded like it could be very interesting. Then I found out it hadn’t been published in the United States yet. Not to be deterred, I attained a copy. Thanks goodness for the internet making the world smaller!

    Although it is tagged as such on some sites, this is not a paranormal romance. I could see how people would get confused. It has a pretty cover typical of young adult paranormal romances, and the summary makes it sound plausible. As I was reading, it still seemed possible. I kept thinking, “the secret is that they’re werewolves! That guy’s totally a wolf!” But alas, I was incorrect. There are no werewolves, or any other supernatural creatures in this novel.

    However, that did not detract from my enjoyment of the novel. It is an enjoyable mystery that reads like a movie. I know I, myself, have watched at least two movies within the last several years that feature a teen girl that gets sent to a crazy boarding school, forced to give up her home, friends, and life as she knows it. At the outset of Night School, protagonist Allie Sheridan gets arrested again, and her parents send her off to a boarding school in the middle of nowhere called Cimmeria Academy. First there are the strange rules (strict regimens and no technology allowed), then the strange things start happening. When a girl dies violently the summer ball, it suddenly becomes all too real for Allie. Can she figure out what is going on at Cimmeria Academy, and why she is there, before it’s too late?

    Night School has a heaping dose of drama, intrigue, romance, and mystery. I found it to be extremely enjoyable. It’s a good choice if you’re looking for something a little different than the young adult paranormal romance or dystopian fiction that pervade the bookshelves today, but still want a great read. Get it as soon as it releases, or pick up a copy originating from good ‘ol England like I did!
