Reread a book today which was no hardship as I enjoyed it so much the first time - Monster by CJ Skuse.
Sixteen year old Nash is dealing with some terribly worry as her brother is missing abroad and she is struggling to keep it together so that she will be successful in her attempts to be made head girl. A rash act puts paid to her hopes and when she finds herself left in her boarding school at Christmas with several other girls and the matron events take a very nasty turn. The adrenalin pumping chase through the largely empty old school is rather reminiscent of Stephen King's The Shining and I was almost as scared by this as I was when reading the King book all those years ago. Great YA title, but you might need to sleep with the lights on after reading it!
