A page-turning YA thriller set in a prestigious mixed boarding school from the bestselling author of Ace of Spades, Where Sleeping Girls Lie follows school novice Sade who falls under suspicion when her roommate goes missing on her first night at the academy.

The impossibly gripping new mystery thriller from international bestselling author of Ace of Spades, Faridah Abike-Iyimide, perfect for fans of Holly Jackson and Maureen Johnson.

Hussein is the new girl at Alfred Nobel Academy, a prestigious mixed boarding school. She’s always been home-schooled, and has no idea what to expect when she steps through the doors of her imposing new home.

But she certainly didn’t imagine her roommate, Elizabeth, going missing on her first night. Or for people to think Sade had something to do with it. Instead of blending in, suddenly everyone is talking about Sade, including the Unholy Trinity – a group of the most popular girls at the school.

Swept up in their circle, Sade still can’t shake the sense that there’s more to Elizabeth’s disappearance – especially as no one seems to care what’s happened to her. And then a student is found dead.

With sinister secrets rising to the surface of Alfred Noble Academy, Sade and her new friends must uncover the truth surrounding Elizabeth’s disappearance and bring the culprits to justice… before Sade’s own secrets catch up to her.
