Disclaimer: I get all my books from the library.
Today's book is The School for Dangerous Girls by Eliot Schrefer.
First off, I really liked this book. It is a dark thriller, about juvenile delinquents who are sent to a school that's supposed to reform them. Only the school has a dark element to it. It appears that some of the teachers don't care about the girls with bad tendencies. In fact, they kind of enjoy throwing the girls at each other.
What I really liked about this book was how the author humanized the girls. Many of them have done illegal things and are slightly nutso. Yet we get to see how they are also just girls, with feelings and fears and people they care about.
There is some swearing in the book and some references to sexual activities. But the book doesn't revolve around it or glorify sex, like that's the only important thing in life (like some books I've read).
A very good read. Definitely YA, probably for teenage girls.
