    A new teacher at a third rate boarding school assigns to her creative writing students the task of answering what appear to be innocent questions The answers reveal much than she anticipated not only about the students themselves but about hidden activities occurring at the school Cleverly done, with a powerful message this novel is amusing as well as uncomfortable What bothered me most was that a friend s son spoke of a similar situation

    4.5 stars, rounded upI was a huge fan of Lutz s The Passenger and the entire Spellman series While the Spellman books were all just great fun, The Passenger showed she had the chops to do an intriguing, serious mystery With The Swallows, we get something different again Alex Witt arrives at a New England boarding school thinking she s going to teach English Lit, but gets handed creative writing instead This isn t some posh school, it seems to be

    Dang it Honestly, it pains me to give this one anything less than a stellar review, as Lisa Lutz is one of my favorite authors, and I credit her Spellman Files series to getting me out of a multi year reading slump All that to say, please take this review with a grain of salt, and know full well that I could be the outlier here, due to the fact that I know she can write the heck out of a story Perhaps the fact that this one felt so off base from her prev

    At the beginning of this book I thought, Okay, this clearly takes place in a fictional universe of boarding school novels where we have dropped all pretense that anything in it is real or related to real life And I was willing to suspend my disbelief for that Boarding school novels can be campy fun or dark microcosms of teenage misbehavior I m down for that This is a school where the staff is made up of checks notes six adults while there are 400 students, thou

    This is my first Lisa Lutz book and I really enjoyed the read This was so off the wall that I didn t take any of it seriously and just went with it I don t think the book was meant to be serious although there are some deep seated male female issues shining through You can read the intro to find out what the book it about, but let me tell you what I liked.I thought the character Alex Witt was badass her mother was as well so she got it honest Gemma was a true leader a

    Let me start this little spiel by praising Lisa Lutz I ve loved her talent for quite some time Shoot, I am even one of the few who genuinely loved Heads You Lose Which I still suggest for a fun read on Reddit all the time And the Spellman series permanently bonded me to Lisa Lutz as a fan So I went into The Swallows with my hopes so high that your kiss book might kill me like the wise men of Dashboard Confessional once sang So I guess we can consider me dead be

    Stonebridge Academy has some secrets and the Darkroom is at the heart of it Alex Witt, who has just joined as a teacher and quickly learns of the all too well known boys will be boys phenomena going on No one has been able to stop it What will it take and when is enough enough I absolutely love Witt s character The Blowchart she makes, while you may first giggle at the title comparative to the subject matter, you quickly learn the true meaning and the lesson behind it all LOVE the

    3.5 stars This one took me too long to finish, and by the end, I was just wanting to get it over with That s not to say that the story itself and writing weren t good, because they absolutely were There were just so many characters I had to write them down with little notes as to who was who, because I wasn t sure who was going to turn out to be important And they all were They all played a part.So, this is the story of what goes on behind the walls of Stonebridge Academy, and private boa

    Memory and reality are like cousins Best case scenario, they re like first cousins But sometimes they re the kind of cousins who can marry Yes, friends That s a direct quote Please feel free to laugh out loud like I did The Swallows, is filled with tons of wittiest, wildness and it even speaks of a few ok busted many B.J s but it has no BS The Swallows was light, fluffy, youthful read to which you gladly swallow rather than spit But being an adult and a parent it is one that I find difficult to

    The Swallows was ridiculous and over the top and I loved it If you re looking for Sex Education Netflix in book form for the MeToo generation, this is your book Just make sure you go in wanting a bit of a romp, because I think if taken too seriously, The Swallows won t land It s a fun book.It s multi POV, 1st person with helpful chapter headings to let you know whose POV you re in I only had to go back to remind myself who I was with once or twice honestly it s a case where it could have easily been in
