Huge and amazing praise for Dark Companion and Marta Acosta! What else can I possibly say to get you to understand the huge talent that this book holds? I loved this one to its roots, as you discover hidden secrets, plots, and true desires. I loved that the synopsis only gives you a mere glimpse into all that Dark Companion holds. I never expected such a powerful turn of events.
Jane has never had it easy. Growing up in multiple foster homes and never properly cared for or loved, she only has a few people to call her true friends. They are everything to her and are there for her when she needs them. Some of them even have her back when she never expects it. That's what good friends are for, but that's not what this story is about.
Jane receives a chance of a lifetime. All of her studying and hard work are going to pay off for her. She has been given a scholarship to enter into one of the most elite schools. She might not be ready for ivy league, but they want her anyway.
Strangely, everyone greets her with open arms. It's as if they are all a big family themselves. I had huge compassion for Jane and loved it even more to see the headmistress of Birch Grove take charge and treat her just like family. Mrs. Radcliffe even has her two sons welcome her and they both end up liking her just as much as everyone else. Jack, Mrs. Radcliffe's oddball son seems to have a rather odd fascination with Jane and is always around. Luckily this comes in handy more than once. Accidents do happen, but that's not what we're here for. The true reason why Jane was picked to come to Birch Grove is hidden well within the walls and will be coming out soon enough. Just be ready. I know I never seen it coming and highly recommend to all!
