    There s just something about boarding schools that capture my imagination Not sure why, because I m pretty sure I would have floundered in the kind of pressured, oppressive, close knit community Thornton relates in these pages Yet it is precisely this atmosphere that makes the plotline work so well in this book The two main

    Were the narrative better organised delivered, The Exclusives would be a cynosure of stars I am going to write a long review comparing Greenwood Hall with the American Marin High School in The Most Dangerous Place on Earth, which of course will discuss the ending be intended for readers who have finished The Exclusives Briefly, both

    I have a bit of a thing for stories set in schools that hold a hint of mystery and a past present vibe so when I read the blurb for The Exclusives the terrific cover having caught my eye I thought AHA Looks like one for me.And it was I loved this for many reasons, not least of which is the brilliant characterisation, with the girls being port

    This book won t be for everyone, and neither will the characters.The story is told over two different timelines one in 1996 where Josephine and Freya experienced something horrible that night , and one in 2014 as Josephine is haunted by her past The author doesn t actually reveal what happened to the girls to destroy their friendship until the last 10

    Rebecca Thornton s brilliantly drawn debut throws a spotlight on female friendship and all the complexities it embodies The story follows Josephine and Freya, who were best friends at boarding school until a sinister secret ended their friendship The story dips between past and present day, providing a deep insight into two girls who will do whatever it takes

    Two timescales, 1996 and up to date Beginning at an expensive boarding school with best friends Freya and Josephine, until something happens one evening Freya wanted to discuss it but Josephine didn t end of friendship The trouble is that sometimes the longer you have to wait for the reveal, the less of an impact it is, which is what happens with this story It was all

    This book really did manage to capture me at first, and I thought it was very interesting and engaging What I didn t like so much was the way the author kept things hidden from the reader it felt clumsy and obvious at times and I didn t like the big reveal at the end.But I did enjoy reading the story and how it switched between the past and the present The chapters were short,

    3.5 i enjoyed this but the messy narrative certainly diminished the experience still, a solid debut and i thought the cover was absolutely gorgeous.

    I don t know about you but ever since reading Enid Blyton s stories of boarding school I ve been a teeny weeny bit jealous of anyone who got to go to one, so when Midas PR asked me if I wanted a copy of The Exclusives to read, whose very setting is an exclusive girl s boarding school, I couldn t resist Better still, the summary indicates that are secrets in the past that are impacting on the pre

  10. says:

    Very simple but quite gripping suspense novel felt like it needed an edit, and I didn t think it was worth taking the time to read the whole thing, but I was interested enough to skim read it until I found out What Happened That Night All Those Years Ago The payoff wasn t worth it, tbh Had the actually quite nice and comforting feel of a kids book, though it isn t one.
