Introductions is the first book in The Academy Ghost Bird Series.
With an agoraphobic mother and a barely-there father, Sang abhors the isolation keeping her in the shadows. The only thing Sang craves is a fresh start and to be accepted as ordinary by her peers, because for her being different meant being cast out alone.

When her family moves to a new school district, Sang infiltrates a group of boys nearly perfect in every way. Grateful for an influence outside of her parents' negativity, she quickly bonds with the boys, hoping to blend in and learn from them what it means to have a natural relationship with friends.

Only the boys have secrets of their own and they'll do anything to keep her safe from the knowledge of the mysterious Academy that they've sworn allegiance to. Bit by bit, Sang discovers that her friends are far from the normalcy she expected. Will her loyalty change when she's forced to remain in the dark, or will she accept that she's traded one house of secrets for another?

Meet Kota, Victor, Silas, Nathan, Gabriel, Luke and North in a story about differences and loyalty, truth and mystery, friendships and heart-throbbing intimacy.

The Academy, ever vigilant.

The Academy - Introductions (C. L. Stone) Book Reviews

Lets just get this straightAs the title suggests I want to get to the point and the point is this book is great!! I started reading the other series first and I really got into it who wouldn't fall for Corey and Brandon and Marc? Well I was looking for other books in that series and I came onto this series. At first I started to read it and i only got about ten pages in before I called it quits I usually hate romance novels but this is different I love it so much!! These guys are sweet and sensitive and I think I am talking for all the teenage girls out there when I say that I would happily date any of these guys besides maybe Gabriel. But that is beside the point some of you guys say it is drawn out and I think it kind of is but that is what I love about it!!! So many books these days are about zombies and nuclear stuff and I am ok with that but this seems semi plausible this series but those books do not my best friends are guys anda few of them are like this P.S. I also love how they do martial arts I do too!!!!😎😎😎.Score: 5/5

LOVED IT!!!OMG THAT WAS AMAZING!!!! I LOVED it! 5 stars no doubt!.Score: 5/5

AddictingI downloaded the first book for a car trip because I was bored and needed something to read. I didn't put it down until I finished it. The writing is so good! Sometimes I have to force myself to put it down so I don't finish it all at once and have to wait a few months for the next to come out. Totally worth the money! I hope someday I can be this great of writer!.Score: 5/5

I mean I liked itI really liked this book, it was entertaining and does make you want to keep reading like every good book should but I have seen some other comments about the writing being immature and I might have to agree with them. Before I read the book I checked the reviews and there was one in particular I found interesting. It was basically about the writing being childish and immature. It said how they mentioned the word smirking, smirk, or smirked on every page so I went into the book expecting that and it was definitely not as bad as this person stated but there was something else that irked me. The word blush, blushed, blushing, or something indicating blushing appeared on every page and it was a tad irritating. Every thing that happened someone had to be blushing, even it was just a normal thing or not a good thing, someone was still blushing. Besides this, overall, I thought the book was very interesting and captivating. I did enjoy the read..Score: 4/5

And god I can't stop reading, but I spent so much money already on the series and I'm debating weather or not to continue reading the rest of the series😁😁, I love how all the books I purchased are all so creative and unique.

Devouring ReadI devoured this book, it pulls the reader right into its secrets just waiting to be uncovered. The female lead I got annoyed with but that quickly changed, she is cute and her boldness to break out of her shell is exciting and nerve wrecking. The main male leads are just amazing I loved them all they have hilarious banter and their fierce protectiveness of the female lead is awesome. Excited to read he rest and find out the boys secret!.Score: 4/5

Really?Trying to keep going. I think I'm on chapter three... Anyways, the all seems ridiculous. This insecure little girl accidentally runs into a really hot guy and within less than 24 hours he and his equally hot friends are in love with her and so overly protective. Oh and better yet, even though she's so convinced she's ugly, strangers at the mall can't even stay away from her addictive beauty. Giving it a little more time but this seems so elementary..Score: 3/5

Looking for a new series I absolutely recommend this one. Also, I wrote the author, the lovely C.L. Stone, to ask her about a fan fiction idea and she wrote back. I'm absolutely in LOVE with this series and all of the boys. Just when you start to think something bad about one of them, you fall in love with them all over again. In all, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING is better than this series. 😘😊.Score: 5/5

Addicting!Whether you are just starting out or you have been reading for a while, I would HIGHLY recommend this book. Not long ago, I picked up ready. I first started with audiobooks, so I could clean and do other things while I was "reading". Then I can across this book. I only say saw the first book and didn't realize that it was a series. When I first started reading it, I fell in love. I though that it was so easy to read and to follow. I felt real to the point where I felt like I could feel what was going on within the book. C.L. Stone has such a good way of making you feel like what is going on in the book is real life. I couldn't put this book down, so at the end when I finished and I realized that there were 8 or so other books after, I died of pure happiness. I am currently on my second time reading the WHOLE series and I love it just as much, if not more this time. Lets be honest, who wouldn't have died to have a group of boys this loyal to you at her age?.Score: 5/5

Interesting Book But Confusing PartsI started reading this book and the rest of the series starting in 2015 when I was in sixth grade. I loved the idea of the novel and the conflicts written in are very interesting and creative. The boys as well as Sang have their own, different, personality that’s unlike most series. However, as I reread the story, some of the ideas seemed strange: they haven’t even started sophomore year and yet all of the boys are driving (so they’re 15? and you can’t drive until you’re 16 1/2). The way they talk is also very mature for a 15 year old. Not saying young boys can't be mature, it’s just the way they speak seem like they’re 20 and not 15. Even the way they react to the bullies in the mall seems too extreme. It seems as though the author portrayed them as older but wanted to keep them in their sophomore year, making the story even more unrealistic. Otherwise great book and series, love it to bits!.Score: 4/5

In loveWhen I first met the guys, it was kind of like "Okay so basically all these guys are heads over heals for Sang." Odd. But as I kept reading, things around that sort of cleared up. I absolutely love all the boys in their own special, individual ways, but I have to say, if I got the choice of dating one, it would be a tough decision between Silas and Victor. I love that Victor plays piano because I do too! But I would probably choose Silas cause I absolutely love him. Like crazy. Thank you for this book. You have a fan girl right here. I recommend unless you don't like a little language. (Even if you don't, it's worth it- trust me!).Score: 5/5

Good but short.I enjoyed this story, but I wish there was more to it. I understand the whole "make the first book free so they get sucked in and pay money for the rest," thing that is oh so popular right now, but very little happens in this book. We are introduced to the characters, and that is basically it. I'm also a bit weirded out with the "7 hot guys that I'm attracted to, who are also attracted to me," thing that seems to be going on. I've heard of a love triangle, but this seems a bit...too much. Overall pretty good, just kinda wish the first and second books were combined, because this book does not stand on its own very well the way it is..Score: 4/5

Well....It was ok, but there is a reason it's called introductions, cause that is all this book is. Introducing all the characters through different chapters. Though all these boys seem like dreams personified, I was looking for some actual content. This series looks like it has potential but I was slightly bored and won't be reading the next book until it becomes free. Which means it was kind of pointless to read all these introductions....Score: 3/5
