The Story: In The School with Chocolate Air, the main character, Betsy, a ninth grader from Chicago, is orphaned and sent to an international boarding school in Switzerland. Surprisingly, in a school thousands of miles from her home and surrounded by strangers from all over the world, she becomes the center of intrigues with a stolen Van Gogh painting and sex slave trafficking. Incredibly, both crimes involve people she knew before she left America.
Each of us faces different challenges as part of growing up. Betsy’s challenges are magnified by the great difference in distance and cultures between Illinois and Switzerland. The transition is difficult for any teen; but even harder for fourteen year old Betsy, who barely speaks a word of French. When she’s sent away to a strict Swiss boarding school, she’s handicapped by speaking only French and totally unprepared for the danger that awaits her.
Just when she thinks she’s safe, Betsy may be in the greatest peril.
“I wanted to give girls an entertaining look into a Swiss boarding school and adventures that could really happen,” said author, Jenifer Rubloff. “It’s full of possibilities, fact and fantasy, and a head’s up about the real danger of sex slave trafficking.”
The School with Chocolate Air is available online through Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble.com and other online ebook retailers.
About the Author.As a teenager in boarding schools in Switzerland and the US, Jenifer Rubloff learned from the people she met and the friends she made about different cultures, customs, religions and cuisines. When she sat in her school study halls, on many nights, she’d play ‘what if’ with her imagination about what could happen in her school with only a small tweak to reality. As an author of fiction, Rubloff twists reality to share her experiences and fascination with how people and events can be interconnected.
