BOOK TOUR [My Review + Giveaway] Secret of the Sevens by Lynn Lindquist

Secret of the Sevens
Release Date: 06/2015
Flux Publishing

Summary from Goodreads:
Everyone at Singer, a boarding school for underprivileged kids, knows the urban legend of the Society of Seven. Decades ago, the original members of the secret guild for elite students murdered the school's founder and then perished in the fire they lit to hide the evidence. Or so the story goes.

Talan Michaels doesn't care about Singer's past. He's too focused on his future and the fact that he'll be homeless after he graduates in May. To take his mind off it, he accepts a mysterious invitation to join a group calling itself the Sevens. 

He expects pranks, parties, and perks. Instead, he finds himself neck-deep in a conspiracy involving secret passages and cryptic riddles about the school's history. Even worse, he's now tangled in web of lies someone will kill to keep hidden.

Secret of the Sevens was an amazing book! I fell in love with it as I got deeper and deeper in the book and hated when I had to put it down. The Singer boarding school was for kids from unfortunate backgrounds. And in this book the board was on the verge of changing everything that the founders wanted. Then in steps the new Sevens Society with the power to stop everything and keep it like it was meant to be.

The main characters in Secret of the Sevens where written where we can identify with them. Talan the main character started out like a real pain in the butt. He was that one jock in high school that got all the girls and just used them to get what he wanted. But by the end he had totally redeemed himself with me. He really came through for his friends and his school.

I always enjoy a good mystery and this one was so much fun. There were secret societies,  puzzle messages, and trying to figure out who was really "bad" and who was "good" was very surprising. If you want a mystery that keeps you guessing then you need to read this.

5 Stars!!
