From USA TODAY Bestselling Author, C. L. Stone, read The Healing Power of Sugar, the ninth book in The Academy Ghost Bird Series.
It’s been a week since Sang has attended any classes at Ashley Waters, and since then, everything has changed. Her school schedule has been turned upside down, and now, thanks to her absences, the school counselor, Ms. Wright, has suspended her. The fear of school officials getting further involved and looking to contact her parents has Sang and the boys forced into their best behavior. It seems that the once perfect student, Sang Sorenson, is now one of the school’s worst, and without explanation, because she needs to keep her lips tightly sealed. Academy secrets are becoming hazardous to keep.
The more that Kota, Victor, Silas, Nathan, Gabriel, Luke and North try to protect her, the more inevitable her downfall seems to be. They do their best to make sure Sang stays in school and when she returns to classes, try to help her get back on the straight and narrow—she can’t afford to screw up anymore.
But then fate deals out a setback that cripples the whole team, and they need to make a move, it turns into a risky one. There’s no way to predict the outcome. If they fail, the boys may lose the job they were sent to do, and worse, they may even lose Sang.
Everything gets more difficult when it’s revealed there might be a traitor amidst the group. Desperate to fix things, Sang needs to stop the group from spilling secrets and find out the truth.
And why all fingers seem to be pointing to Luke.
The Academy, Magnanimous
The Healing Power of Sugar begins with Sang and the gang getting ready for Thanksgiving and going back to school. Things haven't been easy for them, and when Luke starts acting weird Sang isn't sure good things are happening. Sang is the one that decides she must talk to Luke to figure out what's going on with him. But when other things start happening it ends up not at all turning out how she thought it would. The gang must try to come together fix the mess they are in before it is too late.
This is the 9th book in the series and it was awesome! I love the fact that everyone knows about how to make them stay together, well everyone but a few, and Sang is just trying to figure out what she wants, and how to make it work for all of them. This book really brought out the difficulties they will all have to deal with if they stay together, but it also showed how it would be for Sang if they split up.
This was a great addition to the series, and I can not wait to read more now!
