Six top books about boarding schools

Ruth Ware is the author of In a Dark, Dark Wood, The Woman in Cabin 10, and The Lying Game. One of her six favorite books about boarding schools, as shared at The Week magazine:
The Secret History by Donna Tartt

Fictional Hampden College, the setting for Tartt's hypnotically compelling "whydunit," is not strictly a boarding school, but the atmosphere of cloistered intensity and suffocating friendship is beautifully evocative.

The Secret History is on a top ten list of the best Twinkies in fiction.
