Tristen and his two best friends, Billy and Sasha, transferred to Curtis Hall so their
parents could enjoy peace of mind that their kids would receive the best education
while escaping the messy, complicated teen world of their hometown of Hibernia,
New Jersey, a half hour away. Little did their parents realize that although their boys
had received lacrosse scholarships to an incredibly prestigious school rivaling even
the most extravagant college campuses, they now had stumbled onto its secrets as
well. Starting to fit in at the elite boarding school, the teens find themselves faced
with an even more imposing threat than the immortal vampires who have
befriended them.

A compelling fictional novel which retraces the events of the trial of Jesus
Christ, through the eyes of Pontius Pilate, and sheds new light on the
aftermath surrounding Jesus’ death and resurrection. The Jews have deliv-
ered Jesus to Pilate, and with him, a host of allegations in which they fail to
establish proof that Jesus should be put to death. Thus, Pilate makes a
political and fateful decision to condemn Jesus, despite the lack of evi-
dence to convict him of the crimes against him.

exploration of the human soul, a traversing of situations that life throws at us. Diamante has
always been intrigued by the ability to overcome and move on to bigger and better things.
She believes that everyone should try to leave a positive mark on the world, to make it a

a time.
