Ever since her father was stabbed to death in a home invasion, Julia “Jules” Farentino has been plagued by nightmares. Her half-sister, Shaylee, now seventeen, has had her own difficulties since the tragedy, earning a rap sheet for drug use, theft, and vandalism. Still, when Jules learns of her mother’s decision to send Shay to an elite boarding school in Oregon, she’s skeptical. Blue Rock Academy has a reputation for turning wayward kids around — but one of its students went missing a few months earlier and her body has never been found.

On impulse, Jules applies for a teaching job at the Academy. Shortly before Jules arrives, a student is found hanged, another near death, and a hysterical Shay believes it’s murder. Then another girl is found dead. There’s no doubt something sinister is at hand. And Jules has become the next target of a bloodthirsty killer without limits, without remorse, without mercy…

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Darren L. | 2/12/2014

    " Completely impossible, but it was a fun ride and had a twist at the end that even the most jaded readers won't see coming. Nice one, Lisa! It reminded me why I won't ever let a Lisa Jackson go unread. Sometimes she's just ON. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cathy | 2/10/2014

    " Not a well written book. Good story premis and nice twist at the end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Macjest | 1/30/2014

    " I thought that this book was a little uneven in it's execution. I found certain details very hard to believe. For instance, the main character gets a job at the school where her half-sister has been sent. The school never discovered that the two were related. I did keep reading because I wanted to find out what would happen next. I just had to suspend a lot of disbelief while I was reading. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ginny | 1/25/2014

    " I just could not get into this book. Normally I like Lisa Jackson, all other books I have read of hers I have given a 3 or 4 star rating, but this one no way. Even up to the last chapters I just couldn't care about the characters. I didn't care how the romantic thread was wrapped up, or even who survived. The story line was confusing. Oh well, nobody is perfect. I will give Lisa Jackson another chance based on my past experience, but I would recommend passing this one by. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wendy | 1/19/2014

    " Another winner by Lisa Jackson! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elvis | 1/16/2014

    " OMG! Couldn't put this book down. Suspense in every page and what a twist at the end sure didn't see that one coming. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nicky Wuollet | 1/1/2014

    " I LOVED this book! What a great ending too! I smile just thinking about it...that means it was a good book..right? :) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sharon Pacheco | 1/1/2014

    " I don't think much of this book. The story line was very lame. I also have a problem with stupid women characters. Everyone of the women in this book was stupid. Not sure if I will read Lisa Jackson again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gigi | 12/16/2013

    " I really enjoyed this book. Many mornings I didn't want to put it down "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cheryl Karkoff | 11/19/2012

    " A school for troubled teens, an older sister trying to help her little sister, an old boyfriend and murder make this a good book. Plenty of twists and turns in this one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Emily | 9/24/2012

    " first time I've ever been let down by Lisa Jackson. Just couldn't get into this story, felt forced. But I will read the sure to come follow up! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kirsten | 9/22/2012

    " very very surprising ending! great characters though they could have been a little better developed. the ending was a complete surprise, and on a re-read i may have picked up some clues but as it is i was totally blindsided!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stacy Barca | 9/7/2012

    " Just had a hard time with this one...kind of boring.... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brandy | 8/20/2012

    " Definitely a nail biter. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mel | 7/28/2012

    " Generally, I did not like this book. It was very slow the the storyline was a little too "out there" for me to believe much of it as a plausible story. I really did not like this story until the end. And somehow, that was a redeeming quality in an otherwise blah book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan Tuttle | 5/17/2012

    " Still reading, but I have to say from page one I became addicted to this book! I will write more as I go and finish! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jami | 2/29/2012

    " I truly feel as if many modern authors have a template most of them follow. The only changes are the names which get cornier as time goes on. The plot is dreadfully predictable as is the dialogue. They sort of change the plot but they all follow the same rythym. BORING!!! DRIBBLE!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brandywine | 7/30/2011

    " It was ok. The twist at the end totally took me by surprise, but there seemed to be a lot of wordy dialog and rehashing of things that had already been said to get to it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rob Fitz | 7/15/2011

    " A great page turner. Keeps you hooked the whole time. When you find out who the killer is, you will be shocked. What a twist. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Haley | 5/22/2011

    " If I could give this 0 stars I would. This is one of the worst books I have EVER read. It was a total waste of the six dollars I paid for it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dustin | 5/15/2011

    " Not her best, but still good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eliza | 5/11/2011

    " If you have not read Lisa Jackson, you should. This is one of her best. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Louveda | 4/15/2011

    " Overall the story line was intriguing but I found it easy to put down & took a long time to finish just because I only picked it up sporadically. The ending was a little too corny. The twist at the end was a little too desperate. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sue | 4/11/2011

    " I loved this book! !! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lori | 4/10/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 AnneOK | 4/8/2011

    " A spine chiller! Great setting in a upscale wilderness boarding school for the rich bad boys and girls. Lots of murder and mayhem; mixed with a small amount of satisfying romance, and some great characters. Enjoyed this one and would recommend to readers who like dark thrillers. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elvis | 4/7/2011

    " OMG! Couldn't put this book down. Suspense in every page and what a twist at the end sure didn't see that one coming. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Darren | 4/6/2011

    " Completely impossible, but it was a fun ride and had a twist at the end that even the most jaded readers won't see coming. Nice one, Lisa! It reminded me why I won't ever let a Lisa Jackson go unread. Sometimes she's just ON. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 4/5/2011

    " I really liked it! The end was so good, but I thought Shay killed the people after the second murder, though I didn't think she'd try to kill Jules. I thought it was a really good book, though it got a bit boring in the middle . "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rob | 4/2/2011

    " A great page turner. Keeps you hooked the whole time. When you find out who the killer is, you will be shocked. What a twist. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kelly | 3/27/2011

    " This book had the potential to be so much better. The story was there, but it missed the mark on delivery. It wasn't boring, but I was disappointed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 3/27/2011

    " Good but not great. A light read. Interesting plot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 3/12/2011

    " It was okay, but to be fair I listened to the abridged version in the car. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lorna | 3/8/2011

    " Violence, rough language, O.k. plot with an interesting twist, about 100 pages too long. "
