When high school sophomore Timothy Renner's parents decide to send him across the country to an elite boarding school, he expects a life filled with stuffy teachers and snobby peers.

Upon arrival, Tim begins to see that the Perkins School for Self Improvement is no ordinary boarding school. Some students sneak away for bone chilling rituals, while others are prone to visions of the future.

Death and destruction are descending upon Tim's new school, and secrets seem to lurk in every corner. Thrust into this new world, where superpowers exist in everyday life, Tim attempts to wrap his mind around events at the school while struggling with issues in his own family.

Well done. I'm interested in the plot and the characters, the dialogue feels natural and I look forward to reading more. I noticed a few places where letters should be capitalized, I can go back and point those out if you want, other than that it doesn't seem to have many errors. Nice work!

Parents? If they're his parents why treating Timothy like an object to be shipped across!? -_-

Nice, easy to read intro. I also like it that it is so easy to disagree with the protagonist. He certainly comes accross as not perfect.

Maybe make the dad colder.
                              Let him make short comments and demands, he should be used to everyone reacting to him instantly, don't let him repeat stufff.
                              ......Dad demanded coldly/ with a dry voice.

make this shorter
                              And all of them going to Ivy League shools isn't really related to T&T knowing how to act. I feel something along the lines of "Our whole family went to Ivy League shools, we thought you and Tara how to act,yet......" is better
