The teen years at school can be bad enough, but when you’re enrolled in the kind of school Reed posits, it can be much worse. I’m not the biggest fan of stories with school-age protagonists (my own school years are happily long, long ago). The moreso with a story that follows the current fad of werewolves and vampires and bears oh my as being normalised (up to a point) in society.
