Because I’m a nerd, I love a good boarding school story. The setting is ripe for characters getting up to all sorts of trouble with the lack of adult supervision. Shades of Darkness, one of our current free reads (available until March 27th!), definitely takes this to the extreme, since the students at Islington are being murdered in mysterious ritual sacrifices. Of course, not all boarding schools are rampant with crime and magic. Across genres, though, it seems that mischief abounds. I guess the real lesson here is that if your classmates are paranormal, spies, or into cultish rituals, public school is probably the safer option.
Which boarding school would be your top choice to attend? Let me know in the comments!
