What goodreads says:
Seventeen-Year-Old Luce is a new student at Sword & Cross, an unwelcoming boarding/reform school in Savannah, Georgia. Luce’s boyfriend died under suspicious circumstances, and now she carries the guilt over his death with her as she navigates the unfriendly halls at Sword & Cross, where every student seems to have an unpleasant—even evil—history.
It’s only when she sees Daniel, a gorgeous fellow student, that Luce feels there’s a reason to be here—though she doesn’t know what it is. And Daniel’s frosty cold demeanor toward her? It’s really a protective device that he’s used again . . . and again.

My opinion:
Honestly I was a little hesitant to pick this book up, I had heard really good things about it but also really bad things. But in the end I decided to pick it up the other day to take it with me to the beach.
I for one really liked this book I think it's original sure it has somethings in common with other books, but really someone show me a book that has absolutely nothing to do with another one.
Luce is a pretty seventeen year old who is sent to Sword and Cross, a school for problematic children. She's not especially happy at giving away her mobile or the fact that "the reds are watching her" but she lives with it in a very mature way (me? I would be kicking and screaming and trying to hide things to keep^^)
There she meets Cam a good looking boy who catches her attention by being nice to her, until Daniel Grigori appears, he seems like the perfect boy, until he flips her of and Luce has a feeling they've met before.
I enjoyed the different characters and Arriane is the best!!! I also felt incredibly sorry for Penn (no spoilers)
I can't wait to read Torment and Passion.
See you all next time :)
