Klancy | 1339 comments The Girls of Innovations Academy are beautiful and well-behaved—it says so on their report cards. Under the watchful gaze of their Guardians, the all-girl boarding school offers an array of studies and activities, from “Growing a Beautiful and Prosperous Garden” to “Art Appreciation” and “Interior Design.” The girls learn to be the best society has to offer. Absent is the difficult math coursework, or the unnecessary sciences or current events. They are obedient young ladies, free from arrogance or defiance. Until Mena starts to realize that their carefully controlled existence may not be quite as it appears.

As Mena and her friends begin to uncover the dark secrets of what’s actually happening there—and who they really are—the girls of Innovations will find out what they are truly capable of. Because some of the prettiest flowers have the sharpest thorns.


Karen Barber | 10129 comments Looking forward to this one.


Karen Barber | 10129 comments Opening chapter was rather odd. The girls seem vacuous, but there’s hints of the inevitable questioning.

I thought the same thing. The book has such a weird feel to me, especially since the girls are so oblivious sometimes

Klancy | 1339 comments Finished



Karen Barber | 10129 comments I got sidetracked by something else. Back on it now though.


Karen Barber | 10129 comments Up to ch8. On iPad so can’t read spoilers (will respond later, as I don’t want anything to be told in advance). Taking quite a risk, and I’m curious to know what she’s done and not remembered.


Karen Barber | 10129 comments Up to ch14. Mena’s discovery starts to explain the title. Question is, who will she take with her?


Karen Barber | 10129 comments Up to ch20. Increasingly drawn in now the girls are starting to work together. Horrifying scene with Mena’s impulse control treatment.

Karen Barber | 10129 comments Finished. Review on home page. This would work well as a stand-alone, but I'm keen to get some answers in the next one. That ending rather surprised me, though the clues were there.
