Slow for the first half of the book. Then starts to pick up and get more interesting. I appreciate the bonds and loyalty built and treasured between friends. Writing style was on the simpler side. May be more interesting if presented as a movie.

The premise of this book sounded so good but the execution was bad. The audiobook narrator couldn’t even save the story for me. 😐

SpoilerMy breaking point was the girl who was killed multiple times, kept coming back to life, and literally had her head chopped off (it magically reattached itself to her body), couldn’t believe there were female teachers.
