Summary: Morning Glory Academy (motto: For a Better Future) is one of the most prestigious - and secretive - prep schools in the country, but all there is not as it seems. Six new students, all from very different backgrounds, but all sharing the same birthday, arrive at the school, unsure of what to expect... but torture, murder, imprisonment, and giant secret laboratories were certainly not part of the brochure. Now they're going to have to work together if they ever have a hope of figuring out what's going on, and of escaping Morning Glory for good.Review: I finished Volume 1 feeling pretty damn lost... but I can't tell yet whether it's a good kind of lost, or a bad kind of lost. There's a lot going on, with not a lot of explanation for anything, and I finished this volume in a "what the hell just happened here" kind of daze. I liked the characters; the kids are an assortment of high school cliches (snobby rich kid, bumbling nice-guy nerd, etc.), but there's at least a hint that they've all got more going on under the surface. The adults were less well-defined, and I occasionally had a hard time telling if a given adult was someone we'd seen before, or just a random henchman. I also had a hard time piecing together the geography of the place, which seems to have an endless number of sinister sub-basements and dim hallways and hidden rooms, but also brightly-lit dorms and classrooms. I'm definitely interested enough in the story to keep reading, but I just hope that as the series progresses, at least some of the pieces start to fall into place. 3.5 out of 5 stars.Recommendation: Morning Glories is about half dystopia, half action movie, mixed with a healthy dose of boarding school story, so if that sounds appealing, and you don't mind not getting all (or any) of the answers right away, then dive in.

I have heard so many great things about this graphic novel series. To me this one was really strange. It didnt make a whole lot of sense to me. It was quite confusing on parts. I understand these 6 kids are at a really smart school but they have the same birthdates which is a bit odd. But after that was so confusing. I dunno I am probably going to read the second volume, where I hopefully will understand it better. I really loved the graphics though. That was the best part for me. I love how illustrators to the graphics in graphic novels. They have really beautiful work. I dont really understand why people got addicted to this after this volume. I am really hoping the second volume explains alot more. Because I am so confused.

Huh, well I wasn't expecting that. So the structure for this is all over the place but at the same time you can kind of follow what's going on. You have a crazy school where the teachers take their jobs a little seriously. And 6 new kids find that something isn't right. Obviously. So, of course I heard nothing about this except that it was a suggestion by well GoodReads of course. Again. Anyway, I found a new series I'll be reading more from. No really, I'll try since I keep saying that and stop then continue later reading the series and all that. Stayed up late reading this, wanting to know how it'll lead up to the next volume. It did not disappoint but left me with more questions, about the school, what the plan is for the 6 and of course wanting to know more about the characters. The art I really like and is it just me or does Casey remind you of Erika Christen...anyone? Kind of reminds me of Heroes and as someone else said Lost-ish. Off to a great start this series.

Characters introduced and mysteries established. One of those rare books where the writer teases future mysteries and you have no doubt that he knows the solutions rather than making it up as he goes along. Can't wait for future volumes!
