Release Date: August 21th, 2012 from Razorbill
S u m m a r y :
When Lorelei's old school mysteriously burns down, a new one appears practically overnight: Splendid Academy. Rock-climbing walls on the playground and golden bowls of candy on every desk? Gourmet meals in the cafeteria, served by waiters? Optional homework and two recess periods a day? It's every kids's dream.
But Lorelei and her new friend Andrew are pretty sure it's too good to be true. Together they uncover a sinister mystery, one with their teacher, the beautiful Ms. Morrigan, at the very center.
Then Andrew disappears. Lorelei has to save him, even if that means facing a past she'd like to forget – and taking on a teacher who's a real witch.
What Lorelei and Andrew discover chills their bones – and might even pick them clean!

Reason for waiting:
Anyone else wonder why middle grade/children's books have super long titles? They sure do catch my attention though! This one sounds interesting, they had me at "bowls of candy on every desk" and "gourmet meals" lol. Also who's this teacher who's "a real witch"?? I'm always interested in the little adventures and quirks in MG!
