Summary of the Book:
Dickensen Academy isn’t a typical boarding school. The faculty is hiding an unbelievable secret within their fine arts program. When Autumn Mattison receives an invitation to attend the high school, she yearns to escape her overbearing father yet remains reluctant to leave her mother and brother. Her doubts fade away when a vivid dream convinces her she belongs there.
Away from home, Autumn discovers a unique school environment that awakens her creative potential, and her new friends become like a second family. However, as she uncovers more about the dark side of the school and struggles with its curriculum, she questions whether Dickensen Academy is truly where she belongs.
When tragedy strikes, Autumn must learn to believe in her own power and stand up to her greatest fear or risk having her memories destroyed to protect the school’s secrets. Caught between secrets and dreams, can she find her true self?
My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I loved the way this author described things. I felt like the academy was a creepy character all of its own. Which is something that I have experienced in a very long time. The MC is a very cool as she does her best to settle in her routine at her new school. There are few moments of doubt but she is not alone she has new friends that are like family. There is a lot of mysteries and questions to be answered. Then something happens back home and she has a decision to make to stay with family in Seattle or go back to Dickensen Academny. You will have to read to find out Autumn’s choice.
My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
