J.T. Ellison: Good Girls Lie—A new student to an exclusive all-girls boarding school faces cliques, secret societies, and murder.
An exclusive boarding school in Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia is home to 200 girls of some of richest and most influential families. Its ancient buildings are full of mysteries, closed-off passages, and ghost stories.
On the surface, Ash Carlisle fits the profile of a typical student, the only surviving child of a wealthy British family. And yet she struggles to fit in with the rigorous academics, the extra-curricular activities, the secret societies, and the social hierarchies.
On her very first day, she struggles to perform her greatest gift, her virtuoso talent on a piano. That’s bad for Ash, but worse for the music teacher who is found dead within the day.
And that’s part of the issue for Ash—people around her die. Her little brother years before. Her parents quite recently. The music teacher as death follows her through the iron gates of the Goode School. But the real panic begins as death snakes its way into the dorms and the midst of the student body.
The more her peers learn about who Ash is, the less they really know her. But getting to know her certainly has a fatal charm.
Why don’t I rate the books I read? The simple truth is I stop reading any book I don’t like, so I never finish it and don’t count it as a book read. Thus, I like every book I complete. The rest is subjective. Whether or not you will like the book is as much about whether the subject interests you and the author’s style is one you enjoy.
