BOOK REVIEW:
THE SCHOOL FOR DANGEROUS GIRLS
BY ELIOT SCHREFER

We hope you enjoy this book review by The Bookworm.



The School for Dangerous Girls. A boarding school for troubled, “bad” girls. The last stop on the line. Their final chance at redemption. Angela’s new forced upon her home. This school and its teachers are suppose to help her become a better law-abiding citizen, but the fear and evil inflicted on the girls is anything but legal or helpful. Some of the teacher’s sincerity of their unfortunate predicament may be real, but the means for reformation is more vile than the problems. If Angela is unable to escape this terror, The School for Dangerous Girls may literally be her final resting place.

The School for Dangerous Girls was a forgettable book missing likeable characters.

The characters were self-preserving, untrustworthy people. They were always pointing their fingers at someone else. Yes, the punishments were over exaggerated but the girls never once felt truly sorry. They always thought of themselves as “not as bad” as the evil inflicted on them.

This book was also confusing. The teachers and psychologists twisted reality and truth into mind battering weapons of low self-esteem aimed at the girls.

The main reason for my continual reading was that I wanted to see the evil end. I didn’t care about the characters or what happened to them, I just hoped that evil would not triumph and for real help for the girls.

I don’t recommend The School for Dangerous Girls because it was never able to hold my attention for any long period of time and its unlikable, far-off characters.

“Therefore, O house of Israel, I will judge you, each one according to his ways, declares the Sovereign Lord. Repent! Turn away from all your offenses; then sin will not be your downfall.” Ezekiel 18: 30
