The It Girl meets The Exorcist in this chilling, haunted boarding school tale
New-girl Lindsay discovers all is not right at the prestigious Marlwood Academy for Girls. Ethereal, popular Mandy and her clique are plotting something dangerous. Lindsay overhears them performing strange rituals, and sees their eyes turn black. It doesn't help that the school itself is totally eerie, with ancient, dilapidated buildings tucked into the Northern California woods, a thick white fog swirling through campus. There are hidden passageways, odd reflections in the windows at night, and scariest of all is the vast lake rumored to have captured the ghost of a girl who drowned many years ago.
What Lindsay doesn't yet realize is that Mandy and her cohorts are becoming possessed by spirits who have haunted the school for two hundred years. Spirits who want someone dead...
And that someone is Lindsay.
This is totally an awesome book, I loved it. I hated for it to end and the twist Holder put at the end. OMG OMG,ok SHHH hush not going to spoil it... Lets just say Possessions gave me goosebumps from beginning to end and left me wanting more.
The girls from Marlwood Academy is anything but nice,they are evil down to the very core... Are the grils at the Academy really being possessed or is Lindsay just having another one of her break downs??? Will Lindsay figure everything out before it's to late? Will she be able to save her new BFF (Julie) from this wicked crowed?? What actually happened all those years ago at Marlwood???
I'm totally siked to read the next book in this series,The Evil Within. I really want to know what happens to Troy. Is he part of the cruel sickness at Marlwood or is he an actual victim???
