From USA TODAY Bestselling Author, C. L. Stone, read The Healing Power of Sugar, the ninth book in The Academy Ghost Bird Series.
It’s been a week since Sang has attended any classes at Ashley Waters, and since then, everything has changed. Her school schedule has been turned upside down, and now, thanks to her absences, the school counselor, Ms. Wright, has suspended her. The fear of school officials getting further involved and looking to contact her parents has Sang and the boys forced into their best behavior. It seems that the once perfect student, Sang Sorenson, is now one of the school’s worst, and without explanation, because she needs to keep her lips tightly sealed. Academy secrets are becoming hazardous to keep.
The more that Kota, Victor, Silas, Nathan, Gabriel, Luke and North try to protect her, the more inevitable her downfall seems to be. They do their best to make sure Sang stays in school and when she returns to classes, try to help her get back on the straight and narrow—she can’t afford to screw up anymore.
But then fate deals out a setback that cripples the whole team, and they need to make a move, it turns into a risky one. There’s no way to predict the outcome. If they fail, the boys may lose the job they were sent to do, and worse, they may even lose Sang.
Everything gets more difficult when it’s revealed there might be a traitor amidst the group. Desperate to fix things, Sang needs to stop the group from spilling secrets and find out the truth.
And why all fingers seem to be pointing to Luke.
The Academy, Magnanimous
If you haven’t read the first 8 books, skip this review. These books must be read in order to understand what’s going on.
Book 9 and I’m still like a kid on Christmas day when digging into the new book. I have no clue why this series hooked me, but now I’m invested with feelings and emotions and hopes for the future.
Thanksgiving is coming, the school admins are still horrible and a guest appearance leaves you frustrated. I was rather glad to see somewhat of a lull in all the action and drama going on. Sang only has to deal with a school counselor and Luke acting weird. She and the guys can handle that!
We get a little more into Sangs feelings on the plan and the hangups involved in moving forward, get to hang out with Mr. Blackbourne and Sean, and you can’t forget football. It’s the best part of the season.
First Kiss is next and it promises things I’ve been waiting on for a long time!!
