Evernight by Claudia Gray

Bianca wants to escape.

She's been uprooted from her small hometown and enrolled at Evernight Academy, an eerie Gothic boarding school where the students are somehow too perfect: smart, sleek, and almost predatory. Bianca knows she doesn't fit in.

Then she meets Lucas. He's not the "Evernight type" either, and he likes it that way. Lucas ignores the rules, stands up to the snobs, and warns Bianca to be careful—even when it comes to caring about him.

"I couldn't stand it if they took it out on you," he tells Bianca, "and eventually they would."

But the connection between Bianca and Lucas can't be denied. Bianca will risk anything to be with Lucas, but dark secrets are fated to tear them apart . . . and to make Bianca question everything she's ever believed.

The first book in the Evernight series was a big smash! I fell in love with this book from the beginning when Bianca was running away. All I was thinking was where is she going? Why is she running? What's about to happen? Gray captures your attention immediatly and continues the suspence throughout the book.

Bianca was a sweet character. All she knew about her life was what she was told, but she finds out a whole lot of new things once she meets Lucas. Lucas is sort of the bad boy who loves starting fights, especially with sweet Balthazar. But Lucas himself had some pretty interesting secrets which you find out at the end of the book and they leave you breathless for the sequal, STARGAZER.

Even though this book was a fantasitc read, I didn't really like the cover. I thought it was too plain and I was hoping for something more dramatic and grab the reader in.

Overall, this book is an amazing read and I reccommend you running to the bookstore and buying it.
