Fracture (Night School #3) by C.J. Daugherty

Fracture (Night School, #3)
Blurb (from Goodreads):
Devastated by the loss of her friend and under constant threat from an unknown spy at Cimmeria Academy, Allie Sheridan is finding it hard to cope.

In Fracture, the third book in the Night School series, she’s not the only one losing it – everything is falling apart. And when Nathaniel begins to reveal his game plan, Isabelle starts to lose control.

As the school slides into a deadly morass of paranoia and suspicion, everyone is guilty until proved innocent. Anyone can be held without proof, and convicted without a trial. No one is safe.

This time Nathaniel doesn’t need to hurt them. This time they’re hurting themselves.

My rating: 2.75 of 5 stars

Fracture (Night School, #3)
(Source: I own a copy of this book.)
This is book 3 in the ‘Night School’ series.
Allie is reeling from Jo’s murder, and people seem to be noticing. For Allie, they’re not doing enough to find her murderer though.
Is Gabe still stalking the students? What does he want? And is running away ever the answer?

This was an okay story, but again, Allie was pretty stupid at times, and I got bored.

Allie continued her stupidity in this book, and continued to do whatever she pleased, never once seeming to worry that she might end up dead. If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it ten times – if you see a suspicious man lurking in the woods, don’t run off after him alone in the dark! It is not a good idea.

The storyline in this did become a little unbelievable, even more so than the previous books. Allie’s stupidity continued to be a factor, and some of the things she did were just ridiculous. When there are evil doers lurking around your school, do you go outside gardening alone at 6 am? If someone sees someone suspicious in the old church, do you go running off to see if you can find them?
Also some of the things that Allie came out with were ridiculous. I’m sorry, but not wanting to believe a hypothesis because it involves someone having sex with a 40-year-old man, (because that would be gross), is just ridiculous.
This book really did bore me in places, and the stuff going on got more and more ridiculous. At the moment I really don’t want to continue with this series at all.
Overall; Allie was just stupid, and I got bored.
5.5 out of 10.
