Last night I read Wuthering High by Cara Lockwood, which follows 15 year old Miranda, sent away to a strict boarding school after crashing her father's car and maxing out his credit card. She soon discovers things are more than a little weird there. She meets a guy who says his name is Heathcliff and who calls her Cathy, her roommate insists that Dracula is roaming the campus, and her resident advisor, Ms. W, leaves wet footprints wherever she goes. Miranda and her friends start following clues she believes were left by a previous student, believed to be murdured during an escape attempt, to find out what's really going on. It's reminiscent of Jasper Fforde, but not nearly as smart or fun as his books. It was mildly entertaining, but nothing special and I doubt I'll bother to look for any sequels.
