After three months in the suicide prevention wing of St. George's, Audrey Bales is finally coming home. Enrolled at a new school, she plans to reinvent herself with a new look, new friends, and a second chance to be just like everyone else. But the kids who drove her over the edge aren't through with her yet.
And one of her new friends has an agenda all his own.
"You will account for what you did to Audrey. You, and all the others. It will never stop ..."
During the day, the halls of Battlefield High will echo with their screams.
"...until one of you ends it."
And at night, their screams will be silenced.

I am 71 year's old I listen to a lot of mysteries I like cute ones I really like the cozy mysteries I like Christmas mysteries and horror
I really liked this book narrator was very good I will be buying book no 1 and book no 3 I thought it was going to be depressing all about people committing suicide but it was surprisingly a lot better then I thought. I received this book free from the author for a honest review and unbiased option via audio book boom
Tell us about yourself! : I am an author who loves to read, more like loves to listen, since I spend so much time writing.
The Devil in Miss Drake's class is the second in the series and picks up where book one left off... another cliff hanger. What I liked about this story is that it was different from the horror story meant to entertain us by shocking us. It's a little bit about bullying and a bit about the supernatural. I was on the edge of my seat wondering what would happen next. Unfortunately, I have to wait for book three to find out. The characters are interesting, with the typical popular crowd, jocks, and of course the outcasts. Don't hesitate to listen. Jessica McEvoy has a great talent in portraying different characters, although I found her narration voice to be a bit sleepy. Overall though she did a pretty decent job.
I enjoyed the first book of the series and after this cannot wait to listen to the third! A beautifully narrated and wonderfully paced second act in the story of Audrey Bales. Definitely worth the listen or read.
2nd book in a series
With a serious
Message. Anti bullying with a spirit of 999 (with room for one more?) cautionary supernatural tale about the Internet and the cruelty of the current generation through cyber bullying. I really enjoy this story and the narrator does a great job with it. I received this audiobook from the author narrator or publisher for free via audiobookboom in exchange for an unbiased review.
I am just girl who loves my husband, dogs, shopping online and books!
I have been waiting for this Audio book! I listened to the 1st one and was hooked! I didn't want the story to end. I am now awaiting the 3 rd one! ( hurry up please)
This picks up right where the other one lets off. I would not suggest this book tho if you have not heard the first one. You might be a little lost. But the first one is worth the read if you have not gotten it yet.
once again this books narrator was spot on. I love her voice.
I am waiting for book 3 now
I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator for an unbiased review via Audio Boom..
I want to start by saying that I was given this book for free by the author in exchange for an unbiased review. I don't like tucking it away at the end, and more importantly, I want to explain that the second I finished it, I bought the first book, which I hadn't previously read, and I'll likely be buying his other title on Audible once I finish.
I loved this book more than I had right to expect to. I kinda came in expecting a glib treatment of suicide, depression and mental illness in general as an accompaniment to an audio slasher film. I was terribly mistaken and I am so happy I chose to listen to this title.
As alluded to in my headline, I was most impressed with how well the dark and serious themes were handled. It's a rare author that can make me empathize with someone who has been in as dark a place as Audrey without resorting to the maudlin, or blatantly trying to evoke tears. I could understand her pain and despise her enemies with dry eyes and that is always to be appreciated. And this book is dark. DARK. I've had to revise estimates of exactly how jaded and cynical I really am after reading the secret of Ms. Drake.
The kids are well written, and not as I would generally expect. They're children as written by an adult, but not obviously. I was unsurprised to find out the author was a teacher of similarly aged children. They don't come out off as patronizing stereotypes using dated slang, or as cutouts being condescended to for an audience who'll understand how foolish it all is.
Jessica McEvoy's narration is approaching perfection. She manages low and smokey drawls that send shudders down my spine and does equally well with clipped, manic, almost frenzied eruptions. The performance was wonderful, emotion audible in every line of dialogue. She now easily in my top 3 female narrators of all time.
great story. full of character build ups and situations where anyone can relate to...amazing narration by Jessica McEvoy, can't say good enough things about her. tempo is just right. feels like your listening to movie...speaking of which, this has to be picked up for a pilot, either for a tv series or movie. great stuff overall. can't wait for the next book!!
Yes I would. I commonly re-listen to audiobooks because you catch more the second time around.
Yes, I enjoyed this story so would pursue another by this author.
The main character, of course. Usually is just because the nature of stories.
The main. Because I would like to know more about the back ground history.
I really enjoyed listening to this book. I like how the story unfolds and the narration was spot on. Definitely worth a listen. I received this audiobook for free through Audiobook Boom for my unbiased review.
I will start by saying that I somehow missed the fact that this was Book 2 in a series . I was gifted this book by the author for an honest review so here goes. I , at times felt a little lost within the storyline due to this being the second book but, I did enjoy the story when I got in track of who was who. I thought the characters were very well written and portrayed the viciousness of teenage kids perfectly. I felt each of us had known someone like each character at some point in our school lives. The tribulations of " Bales" was very relatable and made me care for her and become invested in what would happen next. The story became a bit strange or far fetched in moments but overall I really enjoyed the book and will now have to find books one and three. The story has a nice pace, giving the proper amount of time to the development of each character and their relationship to Audrey. My only real gripe I guess would be the narrator. She has a slow way of speaking that took me a bit to adjust to but after I did adjust I thought she did well in giving each person their own voice that was consistent. I look forward to finding out how the story ends!
