They say I’m troubled.

They tell me I’m damaged.

They ridicule me, point fingers at me, and send me away.

Tory’s School for the Troubled is supposed to be my redemption.

Instead, it’s my new hell.

In this school, I’m surrounded by the broken and the hurt. The liars and the psychopaths.

Everybody at the school is hiding behind a mask, including the professors.

They say monsters

Becomes clear

I love Katie May, but this book took me far too long to get in to. It just felt all over the place and confusing, both action and emotion wise. However, that starts to clear when you start figuring out what is REALLY going on - and you will, long before Biananca hears the truth. The revelation starts slow, weaving through the disjointed narrative, then suddenly, you just know - and everything else makes sense. It is supposed to be confusing. I won’t spoil it, but trust me, it’s

A mystery wrapped in a nightmare!

Well, well, that was one deliciously confusing book.. At first. But the more you read, the more things start clicking into place, however slowly. And yes, there are several unanswered issues and mysteries by the end of the book, but at least the name of the school will finally make sense, if nothing else.

I don't think I could describe the plot even if I wanted to.. The only clue I can give you, without spoiling anything, is that even though things won't make

Bianaca was sent away; sent to a school for troubled teens. Except she doesn't remember how she got there or what she did. And nothing at the school is as it seems. The professors, the classes, even the other students. Something is wrong. Her best friend, the one she's secretly in love with is there. So is her tormentor, her step-brother. Then there are the Three Horsemen. They target her, accuse her of crimes she couldn't possibly have committed, destroy her belongings, lie to her. Even her ...more

The plot is actually pretty exceptional. It's twisted - probably the most twisted I've read from Katie May (to the extent that everything will only make sense at the end). Imo, it definitely has more potential. I really think it even deserves 5 stars.

The execution, though...let's just say readers who didn't finish are not exactly to be blamed. Personally, I went through the end out of the fact that I love most of the author's works.

My biggest problem is the characters. I know, I know. It's just

Interesting story but fell flat and drug out

I actually enjoyed the story concept at the end. I felt it was drug out while nothing happened. Felt that it got interesting only on the last words and then it was over. Do not like the lead female and it annoyed me on the "teasing" romantic concept. I do plan on reading the next one and hoping the intro to this story was just that, an intro into this world. The story is set up, now I'm hoping it gets better. So far, the lead female is just irritating

Overall I found this story fascinating! The plot keeps enough mystery and flow to keep me interested without boring me. The characters all have their own secrets that we get little hints of but not enough to reveal everything as of yet. The cliffhanger I liked and does have me excited for the next book. My only issues came from at times being a bit confused on the story jumping around but that may be on purpose for the plot. Also I found the use of the word succinct too frequent for a ...more

Another amazing horror/rh/mystery thriller from Katie May that left me wanting more!

Between is one of those mystery set-up novels that poses a lot of questions and questionable scenarios. I loved the intrigue set up scene by scene, and how the little elements of the genre mix poked through unexpectedly.

However, this book felt too brief and quick for me. I finished before I was done, and that left me a bit frustrated. I felt the pacing and movements were perfect when reading it, but the ending

She did it again

Katie May obviously hates me because she keeps putting out these amazing books but ending them with cliffhangers!!!
I have a love/hate relationship with her.
Between blew my mind. This was such a creepy book and super hot. I loved it.
Just when I started to think I knew what was going on something else would happen and I was left scratching my head in confusion.
Read this book.
It is so amazing!

I have absolutely no idea what is going on in this book and I am totally ok with that. I loved it! It sucks you in from the very beginning and doesn't let go. The characters are all likeable and there is just enough steam to make you fan your face. Can't wait for the next one!

I admit when starting this book I thought it was going to be another academy book, dont get me wrong I love academy books, but this one is different, the start will keep you questioning the whole book, and as soon as you think you got it or some part of it, the rules change, it also has something of a bully romance but not really.

Cant wait for the next installment because I need answers!

I was a little iffy about this book in the beginning. I'm so glad I decided to read this book it was amazing. I love B she is so sassy and refuses to show weakness and back down more main females need to be like this. I cant wait for book two I have to know what happens next. I definitely recommend this book!

Soooo GOOD!

This book definitely had me confused for most it. Questioning what was going on. But eventually lost of it came together. A very interesting concept and storyline. If you are not into dark stories, I suggest you do not read this because it is pretty dark. Also, there are lots of triggers so beware of that. Loved this and cant wait to read the next one!

This book was very hectic. So much going on in one setting. There are so many open questions. It's a bully RH with a mystery thriller, and supernatural horror added in. As someone who only a fan of two of these things it was hard to get into. IT was a lot. I still want to read the next book, but like after I read something less heavy.

This is a really good book! Sometimes I felt it was a little rushed, and other times I felt the author just filled the Pages with fluff! But overall a very good book that keeps you on your toes to the very end- and you just need more!

Holy Smokes!

Well, I wasn't expecting that! Holy Smokes. This book is all kinds of suspenseful and mysterious with dark undertones. I loved it. I was completely sucked in and got lost in this world. Give me more!

Mind screw

This book is excellent. I feel like my brains been turned inside out. As always with Katie May, it is excellently written and holds your attention from the first page. I’m super excited to see where it’s going.

This was a spooky, what the heck is going on kind of book. The story was fascinating and I am looking forward to finding out more.

The book was interesting, but was a little too short. It just started to get good when it ended. I will definitely read the next one just to try and figure out what is going on.

Not going to lie, it is a slightly dark story but a really good read. Cant wait to continue the series .
