Little Lucy Snow was meant to be enjoying her first day at the nice elementary school in town; however a macabre twist of fate sees her enrolled instead at Miss Weaver’s Academy for the Scientifically Gifted and Ethically Unfettered–also known as Hollow Fields.
Located on the outskirts of Nullsville and run by the insidious Engineers, the grim boarding school dedicates itself to raising the next generation of mad scientists and evil geniuses! Classes include Live Taxidermy, Cross-Species Body-Part Transplantation and Killer Robot Construction, and for her own survival Lucy has to master them quickly…the student with the lowest grades at the end of each school week is sent to the windmill for detention–and so far, no child has ever returned!

Read Again: Definitely
It’s been a while since I’ve read a manga. Hollow Fields is an absolutely amazing read. The artwork is phenomenal and the storyline is just amazing.
It is hard to believe that these young genius go to a school for mad science. It’s even harder to believe that none of them question what occurs in the windmill. But all of these questions make for a great story and a wonderful adventure.
Every question I had while reading Hollow Fields was eventually answered. I was on the edge of my seat as I read this marvelous story crafted by Madeleine Rosca. And it definitely reminds me of The Nightmare Before Christmas, which was my final push to get me to read this book. I highly recommend this book to anyone that wants to read a wonderful adventure of a girl who gets in a little over her head.
