With an agoraphobic mother and a barely-there father, Sang abhors the isolation keeping her in the shadows. The only thing Sang craves is a fresh start and to be accepted as ordinary by her peers, because for her being different meant being cast out alone.
When her family moves to a new school district, Sang infiltrates a group of boys nearly perfect in every way. Grateful for an influence outside of her parents’ negativity, she quickly bonds with the boys, hoping to blend in and learn from them what it means to have a natural relationship with friends.
Only the boys have secrets of their own and they’ll do anything to keep her safe from the knowledge of the mysterious Academy that they’ve sworn allegiance to. Bit by bit, Sang discovers that her friends are far from the normalcy she expected. Will her loyalty change when she’s forced to remain in the dark, or will she accept that she’s traded one house of secrets for another?
Meet Kota, Victor, Silas, Nathan, Gabriel, Luke and North in a story about differences and loyalty, truth and mystery, friendships and heart-throbbing intimacy.
The Academy, ever vigilant.
I must have a thing for books with swoon worthy guys. I loved this story I couldn’t put it down. This book not only has one sexy guy but nine. I know your thinking I’m crazy to say that it can’t be true but it is. THe boys in this book are all so different you can’t decide who you like the best out of all of them or who you really want sang to be with. I love her name by the way it’s so unique but it fits her because she loves different types of music. Sang is the furthest thing from normal and that makes her special. She loves so many different things. I love that her personality is all of the guys rolled into one person. This story unfolds perfectly and gives you exactly what the title promises Introductions. You get to meet Kota, Victor, Silas, Nathan, Gabriel, Luke, and North in that order. I love them each for who they are. I found myself wishing there was more than one Sang so she could be with them all. If I could pick a favorite though it would be Nathan or Silas. Nathan because he just automatically made me fall for him with his playful nature. Silas because he is quite but in a peaceful way. He makes me think of an over gown teddy bear also. I love how all the guys take the boys become instantly protective of Sang. C.L. Stone has written a wonderful first book to the Academy Series and I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book in the series. This book was fun to read and has little twist that keep you interested and wanting more. It’s a fun quick read that anyone would enjoy. It leaves you with a cliff hanger so you want the next book the moment you are finished. This is a wonderful Story. It is so worth buying.
