3 / 5
Breakfast Club/Hound of the Baskervilles-inspired horror set in an all-girls school.
A young-adult-horror-thriller about a mismatched group of boarding school girls that are stranded at school over the Christmas period due to a snowstorm, with the legendary Beast of Bathory loose and causing havoc among the villagers, tourists, animals and schoolgirls. Nash, a 16 year old girl who begins the novel aspiring to be Head Girl, is in for a traumatic Christmas with her brother’s disappearance while travelling, and trying to remain level-headed in this terrifying situation.
