Product Description
Chapters: Episcopal High School (Alexandria, Virginia). Source: Wikipedia. Pages: 77. Not illustrated. Free updates online. Purchase includes a free trial membership in the publisher's book club where you can select from more than a million books without charge. Excerpt: Episcopal High School, founded in 1839, is a private boarding school located in Alexandria, Virginia. The Holy Hill's 130-acre (0.53 km) campus houses 435 students from 30 states, the District of Columbia and 17 different countries. Taking no day-students, Episcopal has claimed to be the only all boarding school in the United States located in a metropolitan area. Episcopal is a community which encourages development in three major aspects of student life: academic achievement, athletic involvement, and personal growth. The Honor Code, Mass Meetings, Enrichment Tours, The Bonfire, Dorm Games, Rotation Tables, The Center, Banner Painting, and annual competition with Woodberry Forest are just some of the unique elements and traditions which distinguish the High School Community. Episcopal High School was founded in 1839 as the first high school in Virginia. It was originally known as The Howard School, from its location at the site of an earlier school. It became known affectionately as "The High School". Initially founded as an all-boys school, Episcopal enrolled its first 48 female students in 1991, a group commonly referred to as The First 48. The first girls graduated in 1993, and currently 45 percent of the student body is female. The school's main building had been the home of Martha Washington's eldest granddaughter Elizabeth Parke Custis Law who called the estate Mount Washington. The house is still used today, mainly for administration offices. The high school was used as a Union Army hospital during the American Civil War; this was the only time in the school's history that it was ever closed. The poet Walt Whitman was a nurse in the hospital during...More: http://booksllc.net/?id=1416476 ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Terrific Action Paced Mystery - Fading Tracks
Funded by a full ride scholarship, Jeri McKane attends swanky Landmark Boarding School. On the end of the "have not's" Jerri feels out of place amongst the "haves." Overwhelmed by homesickness Jeri soon becomes distracted with an unexpected mystery ready to be solved. Her roommate Rosa and several other classmates disappear into thin air while en-route back to Landmark via school bus. How is this possible, when there is only one way in and out on the mountain? Jeri's keen reporting and research skills are put to the test at this time of crisis. Especially, since the adults in charge do not seem to be making any progress in their search and rescue attempts.

Jeri decides to conduct her own investigation, much to the chagrin of the authority figures in charge. Navigating the twists and turns and sorting the truths from the lies, Jeri makes a startling discovery. But can she make it in time?

Kristi Holl presents an action paced mystery with the power of one's faith for an exhilarating read.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great for Nancy Drew fans
Jeri McKane is a sixth grader at a boarding school who's a reporter for the school newspaper and also thinks of herself as an amateur sleuth.One day her detective skills are put to the test when a bus carrying a load of students, including Jeri's roommate, never returns.Clues lead to something sinister happening.Can Jeri fend off nosy reporters and snippity headmistresses to find out what really happened to her friends?

This is a new mystery series that is aimed at the tweener set and revolves around the lives of girls at the Landmark School for Girls.It's set a a boarding school location, which I adore because for some reason, I find boarding schools to be fascinating. Jeri is a character that is dealing with her parents divorce and feeling that she's not an important factor in her lives.Therefore she throws herself into her life at school to forget about those problems.Her character is very dimensional and grows throughout the story.She's very likable and if I were that age, I would like to have her as a friend.I thought the mystery was really good as it took me a while to figure out what really had happened to the missing students.It was quite intense and more complicated than what I had expected.

While it's a cute story and has a really good mystery for the younger set, there were some parts of the book I felt to be unbelievable.I just didn't buy some of the responses of the adults in the story.I also didn't like the headmistress and how she handled the situation.There are some parts that may be too intense for young readers such as child abduction and possible death.Therefore I would say this book is for at least readers of the tween age.However for those who can handle it, it's a great read and a fun way to spend an afternoon reading.These are perfect for Nancy Drew fans who are looking for something different to read.If you have a tween that loves mysteries, this book is definitely recommended.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Real Page Turner
This book kept me guessing right up to the end. The characters are so real. These are kids I would want to know.

5-0 out of 5 stars Faith-filled mystery stumps even adult readers
Twelve-year-old Jerri McKane is distraught to hear her roommate and several other girls from Landmark School for Girls are missing after they didn't return from a school field trip. What is more startling is the purple and yellow school van was spotted traveling along a two-lane road bordering a lake, but was not seen coming out the other end. What happened to the bus? Did it careen on black ice or was there foul play?

Amateur sleuth Jerri McKane will stop at nothing to find out what happened to the bus, even if it means risking her own life.

I was riveted to the edge of my seat wondering what happened to that bus. The author's carefully laid red herring left me totally clueless. I couldn't figure out what happened and I didn't know who to trust. The characterization of the cantankerous head mistress, the overzealous T.V. reporter, and the blue-haired, nose-ringed news camera woman made the story come to life.

Advanced readers too young to handle the likely reasons the children disappeared: possible accidental death, possible child abduction, and possible murder should not read this story just yet. I wouldn't want the little ones to suffer from bad dreams.

But middle school-aged children through adults will enjoy Fading Tracks as Jerri learns to "trust God when the world doesn't seem to make sense."

5-0 out of 5 stars The Greatest Book in the Series
This book was about a girl named Lani Hernandez, and some of her friends that all attend Chesnut Hill Boarding School. They are just coming back from Christmas Break to start a new semaster, but about two weeks into the quarter she gets a letter from her parents threatening to transfer her to another school in California if she did not get her grades up. If you have read any of the other books in this series, you know that Chesnut Hill has grades 7 and up for young riders who ride jumping horses. Throughout this book, Lani has to learn to balance out her studies, Horseback riding, and planning out a huge charity event all while convincing her parents that Chesnut Hill is the right school for her.

A couple of the reasons I liked this book was because first off I ride western horses, so I can relate to the horseback riding and the charity event. Another reason was because the author gave a lot of description and details, so it gave me a very good picture in my mind.

One of the only things I didn't like about this book was how short it was because I liked it so much that I wanted it to keep going.

I've read other books in the series that were all as good as this book! They are all about four girls, but each book has one of them specifically as the main character.

My over all opinion was that I really liked this book and it is worth reading again! I would recomend this book to mostly girls because Chesnut Hill is a all girls school, so all the main characters are girls. Over all I'd give this book a five star!

5-0 out of 5 stars These books are amazing!!!!!!!!!!
I had rerad the Heartland series and when I foung out Lauren Brooke was coming out with a new series I knew I had to get it. The books are about 4 girls who are all from different backgrounds yet they are the best of friends. They all have an enemy named Lynsey who has a top class pony and iis a total snob. The books show how they deal with tuff decisions andget throug life just being friends. Their love of horses is also especially noticed in this book. so if you love horses you should definitaly read this book!

5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Read!
Felicity "Honey" Harper arrives back at Chesnut Hill with a HUGE weight on her shoulders. The soft-spoken Brit has a twin brother, Sam, struggling with luekemia, and she hasn't told ANY of herbest friends, not even Dylan, one of her roomates. Her parents told her that she needed to relax, but she can't!

Meanwhile, Lynsey Harrison's clone, Patience Duvall, has a new Connemera pony named Moonlight Minuet (Minnie). To get "a pony with good bloodlines" on the Jr. Jumping Team, Lynsey has Patience exersizing Minnie in extreme conditions Minnie can't handle.

Then, Minnie is cornered with leg injuries, and Honey helps take care of Minnie, even though she's not supposed to. But Patience doesn't care anyway-does she?

If to make matters worse, Sam gets really sick and is in the ICU! And Mal, Dylan, and Lani find out about him? Will Honey find away to keep Sam a secret, help Minnie get better, and visit her sick brother in the hospital? You have to READ this!

5-0 out of 5 stars Heart Stopping---Wistfull---Breath Taking
Honey has a twin brother, Sam, but it takes a picture following out of her photo-album and Dylan picking it up for her to tell Dylan, Lani, and Malory that she has a twin. Or she wouldn't have said anything. It all takes place after Thanksgiving break and but during break Honey had learned horrifing news about Sam. Who was sick for over a year and just when they were thinking he was going to get better the same illness came back. After Sam goes to the hospital Honey is even more determined not to tell her friends about Sam's illness. I'm not much for crying but when Honey was talking to her parents about how keeping her apart from Sam when he's in the hospital or at home was making her worry even more about her brother and how he's doing my eyes kept tearing up and I had to blink a lot so I could keep on reading. I suggest you read it, it's full of brotherly-sisterly love and hope, but LOL, you should read it as the series goes after the first two books: #1 The New Class and #2 Making Strides.

5-0 out of 5 stars Exciting
This book was filled w. excitment ever since u opened the first couple of pages. When Lani is being forced to leave b/c of her grades she tries hard to get them up and overwhelms herself. A stress related riding crash and excuses not to get back onto her favorite pony cause a dispute among friends. When Lani shows her dad that she really belongs by putting together a rodeo day fundraiser w/ a famous pro rodeo star to give money to a charity. Will it ever work? This book kept u on the edge of your seat constantly flipping the pages:-) ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable tale
I didn't enjoy the Landry series as much as I enjoyed the first three VCA series, but the Landry books are still an entertaining read, and Andrew Neiderman's efforts show here unlike his later books (The Hudson series and so on afterward) This series is unique in that it has identical twins, which is something our protagonists never had to deal with before. Ruby was an entertaining read and I liked this book, but I must say that I was somewhat disappointed with the ending. I mean, it just felt like a repeat of Dawn's dilemma in 'Secrets of the Morning' with not much variation in the details. It does pick up in the next book, 'All that Glitters', so you can kind of consider this as a 'stepping stone' novel in the Landry saga.

5-0 out of 5 stars v.c pearl in the mist
I had it, loan it to a friend and never got it back. Was so thrilled that i could find it and buy it here on amazon and best of all is that i found the cover that i originally had. They were shipped quickly and arrived in perfect condition. Thank you.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good but I'm still waiting for the series to grab me...
Pearl in the Mist is the 2nd book in the Landry series.Once again this book follows Ruby as she & her twin sister Gisselle set off to an all girl school in Baton Rogue.I like this series so far but I'm still waiting for it to grab me & really pull me into it.So far I'm not big on any of the guys in the book & Ruby needs to grow a backbone.I'm recommending this series in hopes that it will keep getting better.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great
This book has a lot of chills surrounding Ruby. She has a stepmother that despises her. Her sister tries to make her miserable, and her boyfriend is being way more forceful.So he can have sex with her. This is a good second book, and will have you excited about the 3rd novel.
