Allie Sheridan is in trouble — again. She’s been arrested — again — and this time her parents have had enough. They send her off to Cimmeria Academy, a fancy boarding school far from her friends in London. Initially, Allie thinks that Cimmeria is just another boring prep school for boring rich kids. But she’s intrigued by the Academy’s Night School, an elite and secretive program that is both highly demanding and rewarding. Oh, and it might also be highly dangerous. The school rules clearly state that no one is to ask questions about Night School, but Allie can’t help but start her own investigation after strange things start happening around campus.
