A review by mgeryk
The Headmaster Ritual by Taylor Antrim


Okay, I admit that the title was originally what hooked me, because I'm shallow like that. And then I read a great review, and started reading...and was enjoying it, but wasn't blown away, jacket blurbs or no. "The best prep school novel since 'A Separate Peace?' Really?" Just past the halfway mark things really started getting interesting. It's an incredible finish. I still don't know that it's the best thing ever to hit prep school lit (or even that we were waiting for such a thing), but I'd recommend it highly as a thought-provoking and engaging read.
