Killing November by Adriana Mather - OPTIONAL

Killing November by Adriana Mather, 405 pages.  Alfred A. Knopf (Random House), 2019.  $18  

Content: Language: PG-13 (58 swears); Mature Content: G; Violence: PG-13.  



November wakes up in an old castle-like building, and the last thing she can remember is flying on the airplane with her father.  What she quickly starts to realize is that she is in a boarding school with a bunch of teens who are training to become spies/assassins known as strategists.  November has no idea why she is in this school and has a lot to learn in a little amount of time.  When a body is found murdered and November looks to be a suspect, November realizes that she needs to uncover what is really happening at this school.  

I really wanted to like this book, it has an interesting plot idea, but it was a lot of descriptions and not a lot of action.  It was also annoying to be dropped into the story line without any set up and I didn’t get sucked into the story but felt bored.  This is the first in the series, and the ending set up the next book.  The content includes a couple of dead bodies and fighting.  

Reviewer, C. Peterson
