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.
Fourteen-year-old Kit Gordy never wanted to attend the Blackwood School for Girls, but boarding school is her only option as her mother and stepfather are embarking on a year-long European honeymoon. Still, she never expected the exclusive school (it has only four students) to be a place of evil. As Kit and her classmates adjust to life at their new school, they begin to have odd, almost supernatural experiences that both terrify and intrigue them. When Kit discovers that she and the other Blackwood students have something very unusual in common--all of them have communicated with the dead--she begins to fear what the school's headmistress, the inscrutable Madame Duret, has in mind for them.
