Evernight by Claudia Gray


When the story begins in Evernight, Bianca has just left the small town where she's spent her whole life. She's a new student at Evernight Academy, a creepily Gothic boarding school where her classmates are somehow too perfect: smart, sleek and almost predatory. Bianca knows she doesn't fit in. Then she meets Lucas, another loner, who seems fiercely determined not to be the "Evernight type." There's a connection between Bianca and Lucas that can't be denied. She would risk anything to be with him—but dark secrets are fated to tear them apart... and to make Bianca question everything she's ever believed to be true. (

I absolutely loved Evernight in every way you can imagine! I could not put it down EVER. The character development was amazing. I think that I love Lucas even more than Edward Cullen... if that's even possible. One thing that I'm not sure if I like or not is that the main character, Bianca, has a crucial part of her that is kept from the reader until the middle of the book. When the reader discovers what this is, it's almost hard to understand because it was so unexpected. But then the author expertly pulls you into the new view you now have on Bianca, the school, and the other characters and you begin to understand everything in a different way. The plot was extraordinary, the writing was fantastic, and I can't wait to get my hands on the second book, Stargazer, and see where Claudia Gray takes this unbelievable story.
