On her first day at a new ultra-exculsive boardiing school, Sade's roomate Elizabeth goes missing. Is it something to do with the dead rat left on the door step and the barrage of text messages she was getting that day? Elizabeth's best friend Baz and Sade don't believe like the rest of the school, that she has run back to stay with an aunt in Scotland ( Baz thinks the aunt died a year ago) so they start investigating. This leads Sade into the murky world of secret House societies at the boarding school - and of who to trust in the super elite - the gorgeous swimmer boyAdam or his ice cold twin sister Alice - the captain of the Swim Team Jude or even the strange Persephone - who can't stop staring at Sade...who can she trust? And what of Sade's past - why is she REALLY here at this school? What is her mission - is she out to avenge something?
Gripping book. Students will love it . Fair bit of trigger stuff ( Girls are drugged and raped by a secret boys society called The Fishermen) so MATURE readers. ( )

If ever there was a cautionary tale, this is it. Several of the plot elements aren't unique, but here they're woven together in a most intriguing manner, with the protagonist's motivation so well hidden it should surprise the majority of readers.Anyone who thinks things like what befalls girls in this story (and the boys who perpetrate them) without school administrations knowing what's happening and pretending they aren't, most likely still puts teeth under their pillow, expecting to wake and find money instead.

Where Sleeping Girls Lie is a powerful novel about the frustration of injustice surrounding sexual assault.

Surrounded by loss, Sade enrolls in a boarding school after years of homeschool. Her first day there, her roommate Elizabeth disappears, and Sade finds herself entrenched in a mystery while trying to navigate the social hierarchy where dangerous secrets lurk.

I love YA thrillers, and this is a really good addition to the category. Sade's frustration with the school administration is palpable and for good reason. Though the Sapphic relationship was hinted at early on, it still felt like it came out of left field when it finally happened. I liked that all the loose ends were tied up nicely, and the ending was realistic. There are graphic depictions of grief, sexual assault, and suicide, so take care reading.

Thanks so much to NetGalley and the publisher for the opportunity to read and review! ( )
