[In 1978] at the very southern tip of South America looms an isolated finishing school. Legend has it that the land will curse those who settle there. But for Mavi -- a bold Buenos Aires native fleeing the military regime that took her mother -- it offers an escape to a new life as a young teacher to Argentina's elite girls. Mavi tries to embrace the strangeness of the imposing house -- despite warnings not to roam at night, threats from an enigmatic young man, and rumors of mysterious Others. But one of Mavi's ten students is missing, and when students and teachers alike begin to behave as if possessed, the forces haunting this unholy cliff will no longer be ignored. One of these spirits holds a secret that could unravel Mavi's existence. In order to survive she must solve a cosmic mystery -- and then fight for her life.

In order to escape the men who took her mother, Argentinian Mavi has fled to the elite Vaccaro School, rumored to be cursed because of its location on indigenous Zapuche lands. From the moment she arrives in icy Patagonia, there's something ominous surrounding the campus, and as she takes on her role as English instructor, Mavi finds that one of her ten students is missing. The more she discovers about the school, the closer she comes to finding out what haunts it and solving a mystery much larger than she could have imagined. A number of surprises culminates in a shocking twist of an ending and will have readers rethinking the entire book and grappling with questions of morality. Readers should be cautioned about depictions of suicide and abuse, but those in search of classic Gothic horror will be drawn in by the elegant writing and eerie atmosphereâbefore it changes into something unexpected. Grades 10-12. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
