Series: None
Author: Lynn Lindquist
Date Published: June 2015

Summary from Goodreads:
Everyone at Singer, a boarding school for underprivileged kids, knows the urban legend of the Society of Seven. Decades ago, the original members of the secret guild for elite students murdered the school's founder and then perished in the fire they lit to hide the evidence. Or so the story goes.

Talan Michaels doesn't care about Singer's past. He's too focused on his future and the fact that he'll be homeless after he graduates in May. To take his mind off it, he accepts a mysterious invitation to join a group calling itself the Sevens. He expects pranks, parties, and perks. Instead, he finds himself neck-deep in a conspiracy involving secret passages and cryptic riddles about the school's history. Even worse, he's now tangled in web of lies someone will kill to keep hidden.

**I Received This Book For Free In Exchange For An Honest Review**

I read this book while on vacation in New York City and it was the perfect read to help me unwin after a long day of walking around the city..

My favorite part about this book is the setting, usually when books feautre boarding schools there are only two types, the school for the uber rich kids and the one for the kids that need reformation. Here Singer is a school for underpriveleged kids, that in most cases are completly innocent and that thanks to Mrs. Singer”s iniciative they are recieving a quality education. It was nice to be able to see how the kids apreciated the school and fearing for what they were going to do once they graduated, in my opinion any school that has students willing to fight so hard for it is a great school, yet it was never written as this perfect utopic school, hte author had no problem tellin gus that things at Singer weren”t perfect.

Main characters are always important to the story, most of the time if I dislike the main character I will put the book down to tell the truth most of the time if the main character Talan Michaels is at first a pretty unlikeable character but this is only because the author only let”s you see talan”s superficial thoughts and only gives out small clues about his past, but as I read more I came to understand him so much and respect him, he is definitely in the runnning for my favorite male character of 2015. The fact that Talan has a learning disorder that plays an important part during the entore books and was not used justas a way to make us feel sorry for him made me like the author even more.

 The whole concept of the Pillars and the Sevens, it”s always cool to see a group of elite students that many people want to become was an interesting concept, especially when the people that were named didn”t deserve it. As for the Sevens they reminded me a litttle of Yale”s Skull and Bones Society, I loved the execution the author gave this secret society considring that many characters considered the ot¡riginal Sevens killers.

All things considered Lynn Lindquist writing style created a tense environment that only made you want to get to the end of the book and see who was responsible, I can't wait to see what she writes next.

About the Author

Lynn Lindquist lives in a suburb of Chicago with two overly-social sons and a mutt named Slugger who wisely hides under the bed most days. The hordes of teenagers that regularly frequent her house (think Panama City Beach during spring break) provide fodder for her young adult novels and growing anxiety disorder. Ever since her sons broke the Guinness Record for Largest-Rager-Thrown-While-a-Parent-Was-Out-for-the-Night, she enjoys spending her free time at home entertaining friends, cooking, reading, and writing. Thankfully, her favorite things in life are her sons, words, and kids, so she wouldn’t have it any other way.

She is represented by Katherine Boyle at Veritas Literary Agency.
