Summer is ending. Fall is beginning. Whether you are starting school or taking a break, you can always read about the school scene!
These mysteries do a particularly good job capturing college life:
- Gaudy Night by Dorothy L. Sayers
- The Student Body by J.S. Borthwick
- Parting Breath by Catherine Aird
Many readers have learned about English boarding schools from Harry Potter. Diana Wynne Jones's YA fantasy Witch Week also provides a picture of that life as does Agatha Christie's mystery Cat Among the Pigeons. Boarding schools also make an appearance in YA suspense novel A Midsummer Night's Death by K.M. Peyton.
