It’s like I keep stumbling into a dark room, searching for the switch to make things bright again...


Sade Hussein is starting her third year of high school, this time at the prestigious Alfred Nobel Academy boarding school, after being home-schooled. Misfortune has been a constant companion throughout her life, but even Sade doesn’t expect her new roommate, Elizabeth, to disappear after Sade’s first night. Or for people to think she had something to do with it.

With rumors swirling around her, Sade catches the attention of the girls collectively known as the Unholy Trinity and they bring her into their fold. Between learning more about them—especially Persephone, who Sade is inexplicably drawn to—and playing catchup in class, Sade already has so much on her plate. But when it seems people don't care enough about what happened to Elizabeth, it's up to her and Elizabeth's best friend, Baz, to investigate.

And then a student is found dead.

As Sade and Baz keep trying to figure out what’s going on, Sade realizes there’s more to Alfred Nobel Academy and its students than she thought. Secrets lurk around every corner and beneath every surface…Secrets that rival even her own.

“Sade is a brave teenager attending the Alfred Nobel Academy after being homeschooled her entire life prior. The combination of what Sade brings with her (psychically & physically), the wide array of characters/suspects, the many possible scenarios and the ANA itself reads like Nancy Drew meets Clue meets Wednesday, with some good lol moments. “Baz pushed his hand out for Persephone to shake. We met the other day— Yes, I remember you Persephone said, not touching his hand. Parsley, right? Basil, he corrected. Persephone blinked at him.” Strong twist anticipation: Was Sade alive or a ghost? Was the entire Academy not even of this earth & just a hellish purgatorial afterlife way-station? Was Baz for real or a spy sent by dark forces to nefariously befriend her? If you catch my potential plot twisted drift. And the author leaves some things up to the reader’s interpretation/imagination, a few: Sade’s sleepwalking: Was she dreaming? Or dreaming through her girl ghost? Or a twin mind meld? Anagram solution Towards the end as all is revealed, the story takes a darker turn into real & disturbing triggering issues. “Keep swimming. Or if that’s too hard,at the very least, float.” ~Sade”
