Immortal by Gillian Shields

Plot Summary  -
Evie Johnson is a 16 year old girls who has been sent off to a remote boarding school on the English moors because her dad is in and Army and her grandmother is dying and can't take care of Evie anymore.  She the outcast of the school from the moment she gets there and her odd reaction to the school doesn't help matters much.  Then Evie meets a boy - Sebastian - and starts sneaking out at night to meet him. The fact that she could get expelled from school is the least of her worries.

What I thought - 
Immortal is a fun, easy, and fast read.  Exactly what I needed after the wonderful but dense The Queen Mother by William Shawcross.  Immortal is not a book that will make you reevaluate your life but you should enjoy it.  The plot is predictable - not a bad thing.  There are no major head scratching curve balls that I hate with a passion.  I loved the setting on the English moors with its hint of mystery and romance.  Did I mention I'm a complete sucker for that place? Overall its an entertaining read when you just want something quick.

OH! Forgot to mention - there is no Barrons/ Eric style action to be found.  Strictly PG.
