Blurb (from Goodreads):
College graduate Adrian Ramirez has finally landed his first job, and it's the opportunity of a lifetime: teaching at the elite Finley Academy in his hometown of Newnan, Georgia. Life is on the upswing, and Adrian returns home with girlfriend Lea and high hopes---but the Academy is not the idyll he imagined. Along with the new pressures of adulthood, and a rising anxiety disorder he's having trouble hiding, Adrian discovers there's been a string of unexplained dropouts at the school. He suspects something is amiss with two of his students, identical twins Raven and Robin. One outgoing, one withdrawn, both keeping a secret. When Adrian is accused of being at the center of a student's breakdown, he is forced to dig deeper to unravel the mystery, finding influences of the paranormal along the way. Will Adrian be able to unlock the dark secrets of Finley Academy---and his own past---in time?

“The bet was that I had to take a girl’s virginity.”



This book had its flaws, but it was still an enjoyable read.

Adrian was quite dedicated to his job it seemed, even if he was a newbie. I understood where he was coming from most of the time, and it was admiral the way he stepped in and tried to stop what he thought of as bullying, when it seemed like nobody else was doing anything to help. That being said he did make some strange decisions at times though.

"Maybe I can show Robin's parents this," I suggester. "They're the ones who need to know what's going on with her."



The storyline in this was okay, and book did surprise me at times. I thought there were some clues as to what was going on at points, and some things seemed a bit unbelievable. I did guess parts of it, whilst other parts were a mystery. This was a proper ghost story though, so that was good!

"I leaned over to look at the baby, and as the blanket pulled away, I noticed that the baby's eyes were completely black."



The ending to this was alright, but the epilogue was a bit weird. This was an enjoyable story though, and I’ve certainly read much worse.
6.25 out of 10
