Overview

Into the Flames (Grover Cleveland Academy) by Jessie Sanders

Rahab Carmichael is just like any other teenage girl starting out at a new boarding school. She’s all alone, a little lost, and she’s never been good at fitting in. Also, just like any normal girl, she has secrets, hopes, and fears she can’t share with anyone. Rahab is normal...the secrets and fears are anything but.

Despite her anxiety, Rahab finds friends in Scout and Hawkins. Even though her new friends are social outcasts, Rahab feels a deeper connection with them than she’s ever felt before. But to know how deep, she’d have to risk revealing her own secrets.

Another development just as confusing surfaces for Rahab. Everywhere she turns, boys are either flirting with her or teasing her. And she doesn’t care for either option.

Worst of the bullies is John Madison, a jock who refuses to leave Rahab and her friends in peace. The bullying increases and the tension becomes unbearable, forcing Rahab to wrestle with whether or not she has the strength to stand up to John. The only way Rahab can protect her friends is to reveal her uncanny secrets and face her greatest fear. What will she find when she looks into the flames?

Into the Flames is the first of the Grover Cleveland Academy books. Approximately 75,000 words.

Into the Flames is an excellent young-adult urban fantasy. It's a coming-of-age story with elements of sci-fi/fantasy and adventure/thriller, as the protagonist tries to hide the secret of her unique abilities amid all the twisted drama and intrigue that is high school. The story's engaging, but by far the story's best feature is the cast of characters. The relationships are engaging, and the characters themselves incredibly likable. Over and over again I got caught up in their lives and lost track of hours at a time. Sanders shows a real skill for character stories in a rich fantasy setting that should support a riveting series. I can't wait to read more.

Rahab is a transfer student at Grover Cleveland Academy, a boarding school in Boston. Quiet and shy, she takes a while to make friends, fearing a repeat of the painful events that sent her running from her last school. When two of the school "freaks" befriend her, she wonders if she should trust them, or if she should avoid them and try harder to be "normal" this time. But soon she discovers that she might have more incommon with them than she thought. Can she be a true friend and stand up for them against the bully that torments them? Will Rahab face her fears when her friends need her most? It took me a while to relate to the main character since she is so guarded with her self, but her friendship with Scout and Hawkins draws you in, revealing more of Rahab, and soon you are cheering for these three. I couldn't put it down! I sure hope the author brings us another book in this series - and fast! I have a feeling there are more characters to love at Grover Cleveland Academy. I give this one 5 stars.
