Sanctuary Bay by Laura J. Burns & Melinda Metz
Sanctuary Bay by Jennifer Bosworth. Great cover and an interesting premise: isolated, elite prep school; mixed race girl with traumatic background gets scholarship; something creepy going at the school. Anything sound familiar? I'm a bit of a sucker for this kind of novel. The book started off very well, engaging me with Sarah, the protagonist, and her feelings. However, it didn't take long for this one to go south for me. Sarah's willingness to get sucked into the "secret society" didn't fit with either her intelligence or the toughness she seemed to have from her difficult childhood. Even when she begins to stand up against the "pack," it didn't work for me.
Also a cliffhanger.
