Carol Goodman s "Blythewood" is reminiscent of both "Harry Potter "and "The Diviners," but in a way that doesn t distract from the entertaining story within."* After narrowly escaping death in the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire, seventeen-year-old Avaline Hall is sent to Blythewood Academy, the elite girls boarding school in New York s Hudson Valley that her mother attended years before. Ava hopes to solve the mystery of her mother s death and its connection to the students who keep disappearing from Blythewood. But the school is not all that it appears . . . and neither is the handsome young man who saved Ava from the fire. What s the meaning of the extraordinary powers Ava possesses? Who s good and who s evil? And who has the right to make that distinction? *review of "Blythewood "by "Forever Young Adult""
