Dead BeautifulDead Beautiful by Yvonne Woon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This books was just plain amazing. The story line was so perfect and so different and unique. From the beginning where Renee's parents mysterious die in the woods to the twisted ending it will completely leave you hooked. An ended that I definitely did not see coming. The best part that I loved is that the author completely answered all the questions I had, she didn't leave anything out when the story started to unravel. You immediately fall in love with the characters with their great personalities.
I can't express enough that this is a must read book! This is the Yvonne Woon's first book, and boy did she do a great job. I look forward reading more books from this author.

View all my reviews After Renee Winters discovers her parents lying dead in California’s Redwood Forest in what appears to be a strange double murder, her grandfather sends her off to Gottfried Academy in Maine, a remote and mysterious high school dedicated to philosophy, “crude sciences,” and Latin: the Language of the Dead. It’s here she meets Dante, a dark and elusive student to whom she feels inexplicably drawn. As they get to know each other better, Dante can’t seem to control his attraction either, and their desires gradually deepen into a complex and dangerous romance. Dangerous because Dante is hiding a frightening secret. A secret so terrible, it has him fearing for Renee’s life. Dante’s not the only one with secrets, though. Turns out Gottfried Academy has a few of its own… Like, how come students keep disappearing? Why are the prefect-like Monitors creeping around campus during the night? And what exactly are the Headmistress and Professors really up to? Renee is determined to find out why. Dead Beautiful is both a compelling romance and thought-provoking read, bringing shocking new meaning to life, death, love, and the nature of the soul.
