Down a Dark Hall
Kit walks the dark halls and feels a penetrating chill. What terror waits around the next corner?
This is my absolute favorite Lois Duncan book. She takes a situation about a girl leaving home to start a boarding school and turns it into a tale of mystery and horror. And I, for one, never saw the ending coming!
When I first read the book in 4th grade, I was captured by the mystery. Reading it in college, I saw more to it as I had now read poetry by the poets, and I was excited when the painter in the book was mentioned in my art class. Somehow, it made the story come alive even more.
This is a great book if you want a mystery that's not the least bit predicatable. A great edition to any library!
Kit Gordy is attending Blackwood School for Girls, but she is still reeling from the fact that her best friend didn't get in, since she's the smart one.
Even more puzzling, is the fact the only four other girls are there. But Kit settles in and her feelings soon vanish. But they come back when all of the girls begin having dreams. Then Linda locks herself in her room and won't come out.
In order to save Linda, and themselves the girls must figure out whats causing Linda to behave this way, they do, and just in time.....
This book is a great mystery thriller with plenty of suspense. I am a great fan of Lois Duncan's books and this is a true thriller. For those of you that love mystrey with a bit of science-fiction/fantasy in it, this book is for you.
Kit Gordy is to be attending Blackwood School for Girls. The amazing thing is that her best friend, who is smarter than she, didn't get in. Even weirder, the only other girls attending the school are Sandy, Ruth and Lynda. Kit can't shake the feeling of feeling in the Blackwood School and her fear only gets greater when she has "dreams" about a man who only seems too real. When Sandy has similar "dreams" with too real characters, Kit discovers the secret guarded by the Duret family and if she doesn't do something soon, she and all her friends will be in danger of either becoming insane or dead. For Lynda, however, it might be too late...
