Michael Brunswick is a chemistry teacher who arrives to interview for a position at the Silver Lake Academy, an elite all-girl boarding school. But the interview has scarcely begun before the headmistress casts a spell over him, throwing him back 13 years and turning him into a teenage girl … who is just about to head off to Silver Lake herself—but as a student.
Now a schoolgirl named Jennifer, s/he must navigate an institution that is not at all what it appears to be. Far from being a run-of-the-mill prep school, Silver Lake is a mysterious cult run by a headmistress with powers of mind control. Once indoctrinated into the school, the students enjoy a weird sort of telepathy that allows them to bond with each other and share each other’s minds. That becomes a problem, because Jennifer’s roommate Courtney is none other than Michael’s future wife. The rest of this installment revolves around the girls sorting out this complication and the other mysteries behind Silver Lake Academy.
This is only part 1 of a longer work, but it’s a good start. The writing is good (though it could have used a bit more editing) and the characters are engaging.The central mystery of what lies behind the school and the girls’ powers drew me in and kept me reading. I’m intrigued enough to want to read the next installment in the series, and unless TG stuff turns you off, my guess is you will be too. (One note: This isn’t erotica unless you count the TG elements alone as enough for the genre as Amazon apparently does. There is nothing sexual in this book except when Jennifer and Courtney must explore their curiously shared future memories as husband and wife, but this is handled in a non-explicit fashion—which is appropriate given that all of them are teenagers.)
