    School of selected, special, successful, superior students too many S letters in a sentence seems like special spell Oh no Again too many s letters make me feel like stuck in a spell made me think Hey, we have some kind gothic, intriguing thriller, understandable and less brain cell killer version of Ninth House yes, I was not intelligent enough to enjoy

    This definitely won t be a book for everyone, but I have to say that I really enjoyed the weird, quirky attributes this story had to offer Please do not confuse the author s brevity of content for writing that isn t fully expanded upon each scene is a slow, dread inducing dance that marries mystery with sensuality The revelations might not be shocking to the seas
