When Allie Thompson graduated, she thought she’d put high school behind her. But when a series of violent outbreaks by teens sends panic surging through the nation, high school is right where Allie finds herself again. Re-molded into what the government calls The Academie, what was once the public school system is now the permanent home of everyone 22 and under.
After a year away at college and a lifetime as a model student, Allie doesn’t take well to The Academie’s militaristic nature or its 16 foot perimeter fences. Remembering all she’s left behind, including the boyfriend she’s now years away from seeing again, Allie plummets into depression. But when strange things begin to happen and her brother disappears, Allie realizes she must unravel the mystery that is The Academie—before it’s too late.

Allie Thompson attempts to return to normal life outside The Academie, but quickly finds it impossible. The Academie—and knowing the truth behind it—has made her an outsider. Nothing seems the same now. Has it changed? Or has she? Full of more twists and turns you won’t see coming, The Silent School promises to be just as creepy and unexpected as its predecessor.
*Amy’s note: Because so many are eagerly awaiting this sequel, we’ve planning to put it out in a series of ebook episodes, about 100 pages each, so we can get it to you sooner. If you’d like to hold out for the full novel, we’ll publish it right after the third episode is complete. Estimated arrival of the first episode: November 1, 2013. (But if it’s finished sooner, we promise not to sit on it!) And for those who have been asking: yes, Bryan will be back in Academie II.
