In the night class, attendance can be fatal In a California high school, a signup sheet mysteriously appears on the bulletin board: NIGHT CLASS. No course description, no details, no clues. Four kids, each with their own individual problems and desires, write their names on the sheet. Andrew, the handsome, seemingly perfect jock, signs up first, hoping that the mysterious course will finally propel him into the life of fame he craves. Mariah’s intense crush on Andrew inspires her to follow suit, for a chance that her romantic fantasy will come true. Autumn, beautiful and popular but deeply dissatisfied, adds her name to the class list in an effort to escape the claustrophobic clutches of the cool clique at school. Ned, brainy, awkward, and insecure, signs up with a desperate dream of becoming popular. These students will discover whether the night class is a place where dreams come true—or where nightmares are made real. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Caroline B. Cooney including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s personal collection.

Studies show that even a small lack of sleep can have a detrimental effect on health and happiness. It’s time to banish nightmares, make the most of the missing third of your days, and get the best night’s sleep of your life.
Allie's world is falling apart... She hates her school. Her brother has run away. She's just been arrested. Again. And now her parents are sending her away. But instead of hating boarding school, Allie is happy. She's making friends. And there's Carter, a brooding loner with whom she feels an instant connection. Cimmeria Academy is no ordinary school. Her classmates - and maybe some of the teachers - are hiding a secret. And soon it begins to feel like a very dangerous place... 'Night School is dramatic and full of great characters, the perfect blend of suspense and romance.' Sophie McKenzie
After their parents' shocking revelation about their fae heritage and an attack on their lives, the McDonald twins are forced to hide out deep in the Swiss Alps at Riverdale Academy, a secret vampire slayer training facility. And with no way to contact their vampire boyfriends for rescue, they're going to have to play nice with the locals. But when Sunny starts acting strange, Rayne realizes that there's more to fear at Riverdale than getting staked by the student body-leading to a showdown in Fairyland that may cost the twins their lives.
Cimmeria has been more than a school for Allie, it's been a safe haven. But no longer. A nefarious group - one that is tied up with Allie's family in ways she could barely imagine - is trying to destroy everything Cimmeria stands for. Even worse, it's clear that somebody they eat with, sleep with, train with is betraying them. There's a spy in Night School. As the paranoia grows and the fights begin, it's not an attack from outside they need to worry about . . .
