There’s something achingly familiar about Daniel Grigori.
Mysterious and aloof, he captures Luce Price’s attention from the moment she sees him on her first day at the Sword & Cross boarding school in sultry Savannah, Georgia. He’s the one bright spot in a place where cell phones are forbidden, the other students are all screw-ups, and security cameras watch every move.
Even though Daniel wants nothing to do with Luce—and goes out of his way to make that very clear—she can’t let it go. Drawn to him like a moth to a flame, she has to find out what Daniel is so desperate to keep secret . . . even if it kills her.
This would be a great book for pre-teens. My son is in 7th grade and I feel that a lot of young adult books aren’t very age appropriate because of the amount of sexual content in them, but this book was perfect for someone of his age. Although the book was very good from the beginning, the real excitement starts at the very end leaving you desperate to continue to book 2, so you may want to purchase them together.
