A pack of best friends navigate first crushes, new friendships and more at their school for girls with animal powers!
Don’t be fooled. . . . Charm House isn’t like any other charm school. Charm
stands for Center for Human-Animal Reform and Manners. Every girl who boards there has an animal light inside her that is wild and needs to be tamed.
New girl Sadie just wants to stay out of trouble and blend in. When she learns she has the fiercest animal light of all, she is invited to join the group of it girls known as the Pack, led by Lindsey, the school’s queen of the jungle. Soon Sadie is consumed by social drama and her secret feelings for an off-limits private-school boy.
Charm House is supposed to protect them, but danger looms when someone starts to threaten the girls. Is the school in jeopardy—or is someone trying to tear the Pack apart? "Girls with secret kick-butt animal powers? Yes please. This story is fast paced, hilarious, and wildly fun.”—Melissa de la Cruz, New York Times bestselling author of The Descendants
