Look at all of this pretty that I won from Fierce Reads!! I was so excited to start this one which took me a few days to read as it’s a pretty hefty book coming in at 456 pages. Here’s my review:
Down in the southern hemisphere high atop a hill, cut off from the rest of civilization is The Vaccaro school, a school that caters to elite girls. Mari is hiding from her problems by pretending to be a teacher. From day one she knows something is off, especially because she’s told everyone must retire to their rooms at dusk for there will be no wandering around at night because it wasn’t safe. She needs this school for its privacy and seclusion.
Angel is a ghost who wanders the school. She’s figured out how to inhabit the headmistresses stoner son Dom and she uses his body daily to wander the grounds. She’s on a quest to learn more about “the others” and what exactly is going on with the school. She befriends Mavi in the meantime, and hopefully, the two can work together, even if Mavi has no clue she isn’t really talking to Dom.
The Tenth Girl is steeped in the lore of the region. I think with this book it’s important to go in with an open mind because things are going to take a turn to the unbelievable very quick. I’m trying hard not to spoil the book, which would be easy to do, but I feel like The Tenth Girl has a bit of “Westworld” in it. It’s creepy and multilayered, there are a lot of characters and quite a bit going on, so much fun.
