Next in line for Spring 2014, my first standalone title: “Sam’s Silence” 

WaldenSchool seems flawless; excellent exam results, expensive uniforms – even more expensive tuition.  It’s a renowned boarding school set in hundreds of acres in the heart of the English countryside with academic success boasting 90% entrance rate into top Universities.  The Headmaster couldn’t be more proud; Walden is his home and the pupils are the children he never had.  Beneath the impressive results, smart uniforms and enviably well-behaved students is a Prefect system not to be reckoned with.  Head Boy, Brooks Hillman, heads up the twelve-member peer council of Prefects and the entire student body for the fourth year in a row, and unbeknownst to the teachers or the Headmaster, he secretly carries on a tradition of disciplining his peers despite the ban on corporal punishment in schools years before.  Unspoken rules, deep loyalty and lines of hierarchy amongst peers are engrained by the Prefects from the day a new pupil puts on the Walden blazer and tie.  New pupil Samantha Bennett learns just how deep that loyalty goes when she threatens to expose Brooks and the Prefects.
