I would even read it again maybe? Also, by Jennifer Belle..."Going Down". Nice.
The unkindness of Annis's aunt causes the girl to attempt to run away from the Chalet School, now locate on the Isle of St. Briavel during World War II, but she is rescued by an islander, K. Bellever.
I have a hard copy of this back in Melbourne but I listened to it as an unabridged audiobook narrated by Steven Crossley. I actually wish I'd read it instead: the narration was very good but I think I would have preferred to read this at my own pace. It's very well written and I would like to have lingered over some passages rather than having to go through them at the set pace of the narration. Anyway, the story is creepy and clever! It started off quite differently to what I expected though, and it took me a while to put my expectations aside and go with the actual story. In the end I enjoyed it - I should probably take the time to read it properly one day. I didn't like Lord Henry at all though, he's super sneaky and I blame everything that happens on him. :P
I never saw the stupid movie, but the first story ties in directly with The Dark Tower series. This was a period of 10 years or more in between Dark Tower installments and I was jonesing like a heroin addict for anything of any semblance of a relation. On its own, not so amazing, but not terrible.
