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...
5 of 5 Comes The Night
Comes The Night is a very unique story. At first I was like what the heck is going on because of the suspense and paranormal thrill the story had but the more I delve into it the more I liked it. It was one roller coaster of a ride. This is a story about three girls who are so different from one another but they have one thing in common. There is the good girl, the rebel, and the trouble maker. They are sent to a boarding school that is more like a last resort before you go to juvie because your parents can't handle you. Alex, Brooke, and Maryanne are not bad girls really. They are misunderstood but when they meet up at Streep Academy's Harvell House they realize they have something in common and that is a soul seering pain that will not go away.
Once they are at Harvell House they find a diary written by Connie Harvell a girl who was confined and abused in this same house they are staying in over fifty years ago. The girls feel like she is a kindred spirit and what they find in the diary will forever change their lives. The girls realize they can get rid of the pain they carry but it comes with a price and is the price worth it? These are the questions the girls have to answer for themselves.
They know they are worth anything because their parents just dumped them without a look back. So what do they have to lose? Can they remove their pain and remove themselves from reality? Will it work or will the pain get worse?
This is a must read! I loved all the high and lows and the back drop of what happened to Connie Harvell.
