Evernight by Claudia Gray

An excellent novel.

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.

I have to admit, some parts weren't very original, but I loved it!
I have a friend from school, who had read these books. She kept telling me to read them. I didn't want to. But, now that I did, I will be telling a lot of people I know to read it.
It was a really good book and I can't wait to get my hands on the second one!
