Down A Dark Hall

Kit Gordy sees Blackwood Hall towering over black iron gates, and she can't help thinking, This place is evil. The imposing mansion sends a shiver of fear through her. But Kit settles into a routine, trying to ignore the rumors that the highly exclusive boarding school is haunted.
Then her classmates begin to show extraordinary and unknown talents. The strange dreams, the voices, the lost letters to family and friends, all become overshadowed by the magic around them.
When Kit and her friends realize that Blackwood isn't what it claims to be, it might be too late.

Chills......that's the word that comes to mind when I look back on this book.

Simple plot written in bone chilling words, page after page. What more can I say.

Kit is a strong willed young adult who isn't going to do anything she doesn't want to do. But the one thing she can't fight against is ending up at the all girls boarding school, Blackwood.

Being accepted and without her best friend, she gets another surprise to finding out only three other girls are going to the school. Why so little, they don't.

Obviously it couldn't be because of who they are or where they come from it's got to be something else, right? 

Four completely different girls except for one thing....but you wouldn't be able to tell what it is on the outside. As time goes by they all start to develop new talents. Is it because of the wonderful teaching they're getting or is it something more sinister

I'm really happy at to how it ended. Sadly I was afraid it was going to go the opposite direction but it didn't. :) I've seen way, way to many movies where it did and that always pisses me off. It was nice how everything tied up together.

This was the first book I've read from, Lois Duncan, so I was just going off by what it was about when I picked it up. Which I'm glad to say I did and that I fell for it and I fell hard.

Now there are two other titles I know are from her which are, I know what you did last summer & stranger with my face. But am kind of not sure I want to pick them up. Haven't decided yet. Mostly, for the reason for the first title, that it might not be what I expect because I have seen the movie and loved it. What do you guys think? Should I pick them up?
