Samantha Quinn

I am an aspiring writer, living in Brighton, England.

Particularly appealing to the BookTok dark academia community, this novel is a mixture of the teenage restlessness found in We Were Liars by E. Lockhart and the wicked characters found in Prep by Curtis Sittenfeld.

I currently work as a Philanthropy Manager and spend my days looking after some of the most wealthy and secretive members of the UK’s exclusive social circles.

I recently worked on this novel as part of the selective Curtis Brown Creative six-month novel writing course.

This story caught my interest and held it to the end. Great dialogue and setting the scene of Olivia's new home. The characters have depth, and after all the foreshadowing, I'm curious to know what exactly befalls Olivia and her friends. Nicely done!
