Wish List Wednesday (68)

Down a Dark Hall by Lois Duncan, 2011 (originally published in 1974). Published by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers.

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.
Why: Because ever since I discovered Lois Duncan's books, thanks to the library, it has been my mission to find all of her YA titles. Plus she is so adept at writing suspenseful novels that leave me on the edge of my seat. Besides, the new covers are absolutely gorgeous.
