This is the first book I have read by C.A. King. Grave Digger Academy was an entertaining, fun and a very Harry Potterish kind of story.
Makayla was the youngest of seven and the pressure to go to the most prestigious school has always been a burden. She puts in a bunch of applications but ends up with the dreaded Grave Digger Academy. It can’t be all that bad right?! On the first day of school all her siblings get new wands and she ends up with her mother giving Makayla what she things is a useless ugly necklace but finds out maybe its not as useless as one may thing. What kind of family secrets will unfold? She ends up trying to make a potion for one of her classes that would be considered dark magic which is prohibited but her professor has other plans for her.
I would totally read more of Kings work.
