SURVIVING CURTIS HALL is a Young Adult/Fantasy about 16-year-old Tristen McCoy and his friends transferring from Hibernia High to the elite Curtis Hall boarding school. Hometown lacrosse heroes, the group is tested as they attempt to assimilate into a student body where excelling IS the norm. As would be the case at most schools the teens are presented with a Student Handbook. Within they find course options, a page of rules and regulations and a map of the campus. Curiously, they also find a symbol key which decodes the directions within the subterranean tunnels below campus and a list of nocturnal courses.They are confronted with not only keeping up with the standards, but competing with plenty of other talented,bright young people becoming, in effect, very small fish in a very large pond.

  The beautiful and alluring Marcella Venier is introduced and quickly captures 

Tristen's attention. Through a series of flashbacks the reader becomes privy to Marcella's secrets, including the ownership of Curtis Hall. Marcella is posing as a research assistant to invariably further her own designs.


Tristen, being unaware of her clandestine life, is captivated by Marcella and she in turn is unspeakably drawn to him. Excitement and enthusiasm soon turn to quandary and fear as events spiral out of control when a fellow student is lost in the subterranean tunnels beneath the school campus. 


Tristen's group organizes a search party while danger threatens to not only destroy their bonds of friendship, but, steal their very lives as well.  


Will Marcella aid Tristen in saving his friends or will they all be left to their tragic Fate?
