Bianca wants to escape.
She's been uprooted from her small hometown and enrolled at Evernight Academy, an eerie Gothic boarding school where the students are somehow too perfect: smart, sleek, and almost predatory. Bianca knows she doesn't fit in.
Then she meets Lucas. He's not the "Evernight type" either, and he likes it that way. Lucas ignores the rules, stands up to the snobs, and warns Bianca to be careful--even when it comes to caring about him.
"I couldn't stand it if they took it out on you," he tells Bianca, "and eventually they would."
But the connection between Bianca and Lucas can't be denied. Bianca will risk anything to be with Lucas, but dark secrets are fated to tear them apart . . . and to make Bianca question everything she's ever believed.
Gr 8 Up-Bianca has been uprooted from her happy, uneventful life to start anew at an elite boarding school where her parents will now be professors. Even though Bianca doesn't feel that she is the Evernight type-rich, beautiful, or gifted-she knows that her parents feel this is best for her. She and Lucas Ross share a special connection from the moment they meet and he, like Bianca and a few others, is an outsider. He is a rebel who is on a mission to discover the secret behind Evernight Academy. As the weeks progress, their relationship heats up. What they don't realize, however, is that they each harbor a great secret that could divide them forever. Can their love survive the truth? Gray's writing hooks readers from the first page and reels them in with surprising plot twists and turns, and the open ending will keep them guessing and waiting on the edge of their seats for the next book in the series. A must-have for fans of vampire stories by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes, Stephenie Meyer, and the like.-Donna Rosenblum, Floral Park Memorial High School, NY Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.

1 . Suprisingly Enjoyable!
Posted February 14, 2010 by KM , Seattle, WAThis one started out kind of slow for me, about half way through the book I found I couldn't put it down. Overall I really liked this book and found I couldn't wait to start reading Stargazer the sequel. Bianca has a tough choice ahead of her, both Balthazar and Lucas are great!
2 . Love it!
Posted December 28, 2009 by Ashley , Oakley, CaliforniaI read this book after reading Twilight and just loved it. Bianca and Lucas seem more mature then Twilight was not so much kidsy. I was tthrilled after the second book Stargazer and can't wait for Hourglass.
