Delcroix Academy : The Candidates – Inara Scott

Posted by Laura on November 23, 2010

Danica Lewis is a little bit strange.   When she thinks someone is being threatened,  she can make things happen.  And sometimes these things are violent.  Because of this, she tries to stay away from people and not get noticed.   When people do notice her and start talking to her she is really good at turning the tables and getting them to talk about themselves.

So when representatives of a prestigious boarding school show up at her grandmother’s door offering Danica a full scholarship, she is more than a bit surprised.  Danica is not a particularly good student.  She is not involved in any clubs, but she does play soccer.  Not that she is a phenom, or anything.  But the people from the school insist that they want her.

Danica and her grandmother talk it over and decide to try it out for a few months.  Danica worries about keeping up with the course load, of keeping her distance from people so that she doesn’t make anything happen, of how her grandmother is getting on at home with no one to take care of her during the week.  And, she worries about why she was chosen for the Academy.

Delcroix Academy: The Candidates by Inara Scott has a slow build to the reason why Danica was chosen.  But in the meantime, the story of life at the school and the relationships that Danica makes lay the ground work for the continuation of the series.  And, book 2 is in the works.
