Sometimes school is murder.
Allie Sheridan's world is falling apart. She hates her school. Her brother has run away from home. And she's just been arrested.
This time her parents have finally had enough. They cut her off from her friends and send her away to a boarding school for problem teenagers.
But Cimmeria Academy is no ordinary school. Its rules are strangely archaic. It allows no computers or phones. Its students are an odd mixture of the gifted, the tough and the privileged. And then there's the secretive Night School, whose activities other students are forbidden even to watch.
When Allie is attacked one night the incident sets off a chain of events leading to the violent death of a girl at the summer ball. As the school begins to seem like a very dangerous place, Allie must learn who she can trust. And what's really going on at Cimmeria Academy.

An idle glance through the window of a bus changes everything for Katy Rivers.
A mysterious girl, with luminous green eyes, stares back and from that moment on she haunts Katy and appears to know her every move, even what she is thinking. What is the strange connection between them? And what is the power of the emerald pendant which the girl bestows on her?
‘I’m everything you’re not and I’m going to take over your life… I’m your worst nightmare.’
These chilling words mean that Katy is gradually backed into a corner, alienated from everyone she holds dear, even her own mother. Only her best friend Luke, keeps faith and together they must find a way to defeat the girl who is determined that she will be with Katy...even until death.
POISON HEART combines psychological suspense with teen romance and makes for a thoroughly chilling read.
Night School: I love books set in boarding schools. I love books set in boarding schools with deadly secrets even more. What goes in the Night School that make it so forbidden to watch? I can only imagine the disturbing/creepy kind of activities/rituals they might get up to - can't wait to see what Christi has in store for us!
Poison Heart: Oh this sounds so deliciously creepy! Who is this mysterious girl with a fixation on Katy? Or maybe the better question is... what is this girl? I love how the vines are wrapping themselves around her on the cover... like they're trapping her, dragging her under, becoming one with her... like the girl seems to want, to be with Katy until death. So, so intrigued by this!
What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
