Where To Find It
Call number: Adult Graphic Novel / Morning Glories
Available Copies: Downtown 2nd Floor, West Adult
Originally published in single magazine form as Morning glories 1-6.
Morning Glory Academy is one of the most prestigious prep schools in the country, but something sinister and deadly lurks behind its walls. When six gifted but troubled new students arrive, they find themselves trapped and fighting for their lives as the secrets of the academy reveal themselves!
The setup is effective. The school's designs are vicious and sinister right from day one. The students are functionally prisoners, scrambling to stay alive and figure out where they are, why they're there, what's planned for them, and how to escape it. The dialogue is sharp and the time- and location- jumps in the story are well organized.
My only real complaint is that it keeps piling up more and more mysteries and questions and weirdnesses without wrapping anything up. I'm not at all convinced that the author knows how it all will tie together (See the TV show "Lost").
