The Castle School (for Troubled Girls)

We rated this book:


Moira Dreyfuss has problems. At least, that’s what her parents imply when they ship her to a remote school in Maine. After the death of her best friend, Moira is ready to give up on people altogether. At the Castle School, Moira is miles away from civilization. The only company she has are the other girls, the strange headmaster, and his son, Randy.||One night, she discovers the lock on her window is mysteriously broken, so she and her roommate Eleanor sneak out. They find another Castle School, this one filled with boys: and very different from the dank, desolate girl’s school. The more she discovers about the Castle Schools and the headmasters who run them, Moira comes up with more questions. Will she figure out the mystery surrounding the two castles? And will she be able to confront the pain she’s been avoiding for far too long?||This book was a beautiful story about mental illness. I feel like the author did a good job of describing Moira’s struggles. I liked each of the characters, and I liked the different perspectives in the book. Overall, the book was thrilling and mysterious, and I enjoyed it!
