About the Author

Christelle Dabos was born on the Côte d'Azur in 1980 and grew up in a home filled with classical music and historical games. She now lives in Belgium. The Mirror Visitor, her debut series, won the Gallimard Jeunesse-RTL-Télérama First Novel Competition.

Since graduating in French from Oxford University, Hildegarde Serle has worked in London as a newspaper subeditor, mainly on The Independent and The Sunday Telegraph. In 2011, she decided to combine her love of both English and French by doing the Chartered Institute of Linguists Diploma in Translation. Although she still lives in London, her heart still lives on the Quai aux Fleurs in Paris.
Reviews

★ "Enticingly peculiar...The novel will appeal to those who enjoy something radically different."--Michael Cart, Booklist (starred)


"This is a gripping and disturbing read: sharp, intense and coolly observant of school day relationships and transgressions."--Jamie Buxton, Daily Mail


"A dense fever dream."--Kirkus


"Imagine all your middle-school nightmares made manifest. Add to that an eerie paranormal aspect that elevates the whole to the maximum level and you have this wildly creative and engaging tale of the middle school from hell."--Eric Boss, Reading the West


"The book is interlaced with multiple different storylines (as is true of any good school!) -- at the School of Here, you'll find secret societies, magic, mystery, and students dealing with the loneliness and alienation that everyone feels at that young, pliant age."--Powell's


"Dabos is a talented writer unafraid to tackle complex issues and it shows here...[her] writing is crisp and sharp."--Chris Haigh, Set the Tape


"There's a grand tradition of Francophone weird fiction, where the characters must grapple with an underlying order to the world that's beyond their understanding. Here, Dabos has blended that with a dash of dark academia; the result is elusive but ultimately rewarding."--Tobias Carroll, Tor
