Bianca wants to escape. 

She's been uprooted from her small hometown and enrolled at Evernight Academy, an eerie Gothic boarding school where the students are somehow too perfect: smart, sleek, and almost predatory. Bianca knows she doesn't fit in. 

Then she meets Lucas. He's not the "Evernight type" either, and he likes it that way. Lucas ignores the rules, stands up to the snobs, and warns Bianca to be careful—even when it comes to caring about him. 

"I couldn't stand it if they took it out on you," he tells Bianca, "and eventually they would." 

But the connection between Bianca and Lucas can't be denied. Bianca will risk anything to be with Lucas, but dark secrets are fated to tear them apart . . . and to make Bianca question everything she's ever believed.
This book was not at all what I was expecting. The prologue made the book sound fun and exciting! It seemed like it was jam packed with action. However, I was highly disappointed. There wasn’t anything really driving the plot, honestly.
There was next to no action. The instalove was ridiculous. The book tells us the main character is shy and she gets anxiety when talking to people. The author told us this but she did a horrible job at showing it. I myself being a shy person, would never have to bravery to have to conversations that Bianca had.
I found Bianca to be a poor developed character. She was so immature and naive. She’s 16 and she kept wishing her boyfriend would make the ultimate decision to stay with her forever. It’s like the opposite of Edward from twilight.
Overall, I don’t think I would recommend this book to anyone unless you’re dead set on reading it! Only one character made the book worth reading and he wasn’t even in it very much.
