Where sleeping girls lie / Faridah Àbíké-Íyímídé.

"IT'S LIKE I KEEP STUMBLING INTO A DARK ROOM, SEARCHING FOR THE SWITCH TO MAKE THINGS BRIGHT AGAIN. Sade Hussein is starting her third year of high school, this time at the prestigious Alfred Nobel Academy boarding school, after being homeschooled. Misfortune has been a constant companion throughout her life, but even Sade doesn't expect her new roommate, Elizabeth, to disappear after Sade's first night. Or for people to think she had something to do with it. With rumors swirling around her, Sade catches the attention of the girls collectively known as the Unholy Trinity, and they bring her into their fold. Between learning more about them -- especially Persephone, who Sade is inexplicably drawn to -- and playing catch-up in class, Sade already has so much on her plate. But when it seems people don't care enough about what happened to Elizabeth, it's up to her and Elizabeth's best friend, Baz, to investigate. And then a student is found dead. As Sade and Baz keep trying to figure out what's going on, Sade realizes there's more to Alfred Nobel Academy and its students than she thought. Secrets lurk around every corner and beneath every surface... Secrets that rival even her own." -- Provided by dustjacket.
