    Peretti is a master storyteller

    Review by Gretchen Hoffman

    A fifteen-year-old boy shows up along a highway interstate. He doesn't know his name, how to dress himself, and has no memory of what's happened to him. He simply repeats the words, "Nightmare Academy."

    This is when teenage detectives Elijah and Elisha come into play. They go undercover as runaways where the boy and his friend were last seen before their disappearance. The twins are quickly headed on the right track, but things change when they too disappear. They investigate the going-ons but are unable to contact anyone from where they are. But once they find out what's really happening, will they have a chance to escape and save themselves?

    Peretti is a master storyteller with mystery novels, and this one is no exception. This book is a little darker than some of his other novels, and while it's good, it is a bit creepy. I read this book when it first came out, and the one scene where Elijah quotes the Ten Commandments has stuck in my mind ever since. This is one of those books that's intriguing, discusses some deep ideas, and will stick in your mind long after you've read it. If you're a Peretti fan, have read book one in the series, or are into mysteries, this is one for you.

    OH. MY. GOSH. The absolute BEST book i have EVER READ in my ENTIRE life!!!!

    I LOVED NIGHTMARE ACADEMY (The Veritas Project #2)!! I read this 300 page book in less than a day straight. I love mystery novels and I love Christian novels, and this book is both in one! Why is there only 5 stars? This deserves 7!!! If you want to read a good book this year, this one is it! Make sure you read it slow though, i made the mistake of rushing through it. FRANK PERETTI ROCKS! My only quesiton is this.... WHERE'S 'VERITAS PROJECT #3'?????

    Nightmare Academy

    Nightmare Academy was a thrilling book that showed many views that teens see today. Either/or, Both/and, these are some of the quotes used in the book to settle arguments between the people. This book also has christianity written into it, saying how they pray to God and how in one part of the book Elijah and Elisha (the main characters) quote the 10 Commandments in one of the teachers class. This is a mysterious book of how a young boy named Alvin Rodgers is found somewhere in Idaho and he is insane. His thoughts, his mind, his reason for life is all gone. He mutters words that don't make sense. And he refers all of what he says and does to the Nightmare Academy. So Elijah and Elisha go on an investigation to this Knight-moore Academy, a summer camp for teens who can get high school grades if wanted, where you can be whoever you want whenever you want to be it. This drives Elijah and Elisha almost to their breaking points trying to find what happened to Alvin Rodgers and trying to save their own lives at the same time.

    Nightmare Academy

    OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!! BEST BOOK EVER!!!!!!! This book begins by showing a strange boy. He doesn't know his name, where he's come from, or even how to dress himself. All anyone knows are the two words he keeps repeating: "Nightmare Academy". Enter the Springfields, a family of private investigators. Elijah and Elisha, 16-year-old twins, go undercover to find as much as they can about the mysterious Nightmare Academy. Their parents, Nate and Sarah, plan to track their progress. But when the teen's radio goes dead, all contact is lost. As Nate and Sarah search for their children, Elijah and Elisha find themselves at a strange school where right and wrong don't mean anything, evil is encouraged, and society is what you make it to be. The siblings must fight to keep their faith as the kids around them fall for the lies of the instructors at "Knight-Moore Academy". Can Elijah and Elisha reveal the true nature of the Academy, or will evil win? If you enjoyed the first book, like a good mystery, or want a great Christian book, I highly recommend this book.

    Pretty good

    I liked it. I read it in one or so days it was so good. It wasn't very realistic, but it was funny and well-written--it was pretty good.

    BEST BOOK SERIES EVER WRITTEN!!!!!

    This book was so good!! I couldn`t put it down! The first book was really good too. I read them over and over again, in one day! Frank Peretti is a mastermind, a genious, and a great model for us christians. He, in his many books, shows that there is more to life than what we see. I love his books soooo much!
