A secret organization at Heller High School can grant favors or deal out punishments. Only no-one knows who they are or why they do what they do. But Ember Williams is hell-bent on finding out and getting in.
“Half of the school treated them like the Boogeyman…”
Why was Ember so obsessed with getting into this organization. For revenge, to take down the Queen of Hearts – the leader – down, for what they did to her sister. But it’s more than just that… She might also secretly…
Well, you’ll just have to read the book to find out what happens. Ember is an interesting character who keeps a few people close and there are some lines she won’t cross. Being someone with a moral compass pointed to good, wanting to get into this type of secret club took all her determination…
I liked how Katherine wrote an open ending, while answering the biggest of your questions. Now the only question is what will happen next? Quite a nice page turner mystery for young readers to sink their teeth into.
