School is in full swing right now, and there’s nothing more academic than the boarding school novel. Say, Rach, what makes a novel a “boarding school novel”?

the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
the Gemma Doyle series by Libba Bray
Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
A Separate Peace by John Knowles
Looking for Alaska by John Green
