Read from March 18 to 26, 2012

This had all the elements I needed for a good book: prep school, a bit of Southern Gothic, and lots of gore. I found the first half or so to be pretty riveting, but then the novel took a sudden and (to me) strange turn, that while not totally offputting, downgraded my enjoyment of it from four stars to three. Overall, pretty well written, just ultimately not my bag.
