Unseemly Education of Anne Merchant- Joanna Wiebe
Anne Merchant ends up going to a very strange boarding school for the wealthy. Fees are not discussed because they are too high and there is a guardian that makes sure you are always living your mission in every way possible so that you may become valedictorian.
I ended up enjoying this despite its flagrant flaws. Predictable? Somewhat, yes, you could give good guesses at what was going on before Anne got even half way through. Stilted prose? Somewhat-could have done with some more editing for flow. A preponderance for cliffhangers? Undoubtedly. A bit too focused on being secretive? Yes but it’s a hard thing to balance.
