Applegate, Anne. The Last Academy. New York, N.Y: Point, 2013.
The story is about a 14 year old girl who goes away to boarding school after a falling out with her best friend. At school she begins to experience strange visions and her friends begin to disappear.
I feel like the author does not have a very good writing style. It does not read easily, as though the author had too many ideas and it came out jumbled. The story didn't make sense sometimes.
The only illustration is the book cover which includes four young adults standing in front of a huge gate with an unclear image beyond it.
Overall my opinion of the book is that it is neither great or horrible. The book seems to drag and is full of confusion. I would recommend this book to ages 11-15 girls.
