This book is older...than me, but they revamped the cover and have rereleased them, so they look cool and interesting. It worked.
Down a Dark Hall is about a girl named Kit whose parents (well, mom and step-dad) drop her off at a fancy boarding school. This boarding school is BEAUTIFUL. It is a very old mansion that has been renovated to make it look as though it was brand new, from the time it was originally built. Kit, while not happy about going off to the boarding school, is smitten with how gorgeous it is.
Eventually, the other students begin showing up, except that she quickly realizes that only four students will be enrolled in fall semester, which seems sort of strange to Kit. But, everyone seem nice and she quickly makes friends with the other three girls. Then, things get weird. Kit starts having weird and creepy dreams and she feels like something is wrong at the mansion. Then, one night, one of her classmates begins screaming hysterically about seeing something looking at her while she was sleeping.
This mostly makes Kit believe something is WRONG at this mansion, but what?
What do these four girls have in common that will help solve the mystery of this mansion and boarding school?
I'm an avid reader. One thing I've learned in my many years on this Earth is that no matter what is happening in your life, you can always benefit from temporarily escaping life in order to become absorbed in a make believe story.
