Book Synopsis

How far would you go to escape your own personal teenage hell? Would you run away, break away from everything you know—even your own body?

Alex Robbins, Brooke Saunders and Maryanne Hemlock could not be more different, yet they all have something in common — deep and soul-searing pain. They are also all students at Streep Academy, a boarding school just one step away from juvie, where they've come to complete high school. The three have been relegated to Harvell House, the residence reserved for the hardest cases, the so-called Rejects from Reject Row. In the forbidden attic of the old Victorian house-turned-residence, the girls discover the diary of Connie Harvell, a young woman who was confined and abused there some 50 years ago. In the end, Connie’s attic prison couldn't hold her—not completely. She found a way out. At least a dark part of her did. And after reading her diary, the girls discover they can escape at will too. A terrifying, thrilling flight from their bodies and their troubles.

But God help them, their pain isn't all they leave behind when they join with the night. And God help anyone who’s wronged them..

Shona's review 5 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this story, really enjoyed it. I'm just struggling to find the words to explain why I enjoyed it. Especially spoiler free words.

The book opens with an excerpt from Connie's diary, and follows on with Alex waking in attic in the morning and realising that she has been raped but unable to remember any of the details of her night before. Given her history and the fact that she cant remember anything, Alex chooses not to tell anyone fearing they wouldn't believe her. She finds Connie's diary in the attic's rafters and discovers Connie's horrible truth. When one of her room-mates discovers Connie's diary Alex agrees to read it with them in the attic. It is at this point the girls discover they are able to 'cast'.

The book focuses on Alex, Brooke and Maryanne. Three girls who wouldn't be friends if they hadn't been forced together as room mates. Three girls who wouldn't be friends if they hadn't discovered the horrible things that Connie had to endure. Three girls who became sisters in the night.

Each girl has a story of their own, a story they don't want everyone to know about. And one of the things I enjoyed about this story is the fact that we don't get the 'wave of a magic wand' that makes everything all better. This tale is dark and gripping, its full of teenage angst with a touch of paranormal and thriller thrown in.
