Description

Four troubled friends,
One murdered girl...
and a dark fate that may leave them all doomed.

The Descendants meets Pretty Little Liars in this story of four reimagined fairytale heroines who must uncover connections to their ancient curses and forge their own paths... before it's too late.

After the mysterious death of their best friend, Ella, Yuki, and Rory are the talk of their elite school, Grimrose Académie. The police ruled Ariane's death as a suicide, but the trio are determined to find out what really happened.

When Nani Eszes arrives as their newest roommate, it sets into motion a series of events that no one could have predicted. As the girls retrace their friend's final days, they discover a dark secret about Grimrose—Ariane wasn't the first dead girl.

They soon learn that all the past murders are connected to ancient fairytale curses...and that their own fates are tied to the stories, dooming the girls to brutal and gruesome endings unless they can break the cycle for good.

I need the sequel to this right now. Oversimplified, this book is A Lesson in Vengeance meets A Curse so Dark and Lonely. It's a bunch of queer teens and curses and magic and mental and physical illnesses represented in strong and realistic ways. It was so much fun to read and a;sflkj;kl I loved it so much. Check it out, and thank you to Laura Pohl and NetGalley for sending me an E-ARC in exchange for an honest review!

I absolutely adored this book. I stayed up and read it in a night because the plot moves at a brisk pace, the girls and their worries and their loves are so fun, the mystery was compelling, and the climax was amazing. As soon as it ended, I wanted to read the sequel, or read it again and again until the sequel came out. This book broke the reading slump I've been in for months and I just had such a good time. I can't wait for whatever comes next in this series.
