THEY LIVED ON THE WILD SIDE.
NOW THESE BAD GIRLS ARE PAYING THE PRICE.
At Dr. Foreman's School for Girls, the "students" sleep in barns, work on a farm in the blazing heat, and are subjected to ruthless guards who watch their every move. It's an institution run by the dreadful Dr. Foreman, a woman who delights in administering the worst form of punishment -- the mysterious Ice Room where the girls face their darkest fears.
Now Phoebe, Teal, and Robin -- three girls from very different worlds -- are the newcomers in this desert hell. During their stay, each girl will be tempted to commit the ultimate crime of betrayal as Dr. Foreman cleverly tries to turn them against each other -- until they learn that the only way to survive is to stick together...and fight back.
THESE TOUGH GIRLS NEVER MET THEIR MATCH -- UNTIL THEY MET EACH OTHER.
No one will hear her cries now.
They put the helmet over my head and fastened the straps so that it was on tightly. I resisted but I couldn't keep my arms from being straightened and then a strap was fixed over my chest. It was just as it had been when I woke up in the plane that brought me to this hell.
She wants to break free -- but where will she fly?
I'm going to strangle my mother darling when I get away from here. She just wanted to get me out of her hair while she tries to become a famous country singing star. Just go, she told me, I'm better off. What she really meant was she was better off.
Once she was rich and entitled -- now she's just trying to survive.
Don't you want to try to run away with me? You can't want to stay here a moment longer than you have to. Maybe we just have to follow the dirt road out. Maybe they're lying to us and we're not that far from a town. I won't make it through another day like this.

Excerpt from Midnight Flight by V.C. Andrews
The moment we were alone, I turned to the girl on my left.
"What is this Where are we Why are we in this place " I asked.
"Why are you asking me How would I know " she shot back at me. "What do I look like, information please "
"Well, you were here before me so I thought you might know more," I threw back at her with just as unfriendly a tone.
"We got here only a little while before you did," the second girl said, somewhat softer. I turned to her. "So we don't know any more than you do. I'm Teal Sommers. That's Robin Lyn Taylor. She didn't tell me her name," Teal added with a smirk. "I heard one of those girls call her that." She leaned forward to glare past me at Robin Lyn.
"I'm not exactly in a party mood, you know, and I told you, I don't like to be called Robin Lyn. Just call me Robin. You, too," she ordered me.
"Yes, Your Majesty," I said, and Teal laughed.
Robin folded her arms and turned away. "Well, we're here together so I guess we'll have to talk to each other decently. Where y'all from "
"Where y'all from " Teal laughed. "I'm from Albany, New York. I was flown in here just a little before y'all were, I think. I'm very unsure about the time. They took my watch."
"Mine, too," I said, rubbing my wrist. "And my ring. Why did they do that "
"Maybe they're jewel thieves. They took Robin's watch, too, right, Robin "
"Big deal. I stole it. I'll steal another first chance I get," she said defiantly, looking at the closed door. "I'm supposed to be at a school, a special school. That's what the judge said," she shouted at the door. "Not some dumpy, smelly building."
"Judge " I asked.
She spun her head around to me so fast, I thought it would just keep going in circles on her neck.
"What are you, a scholarship winner or something Is that why you're here "
I stared, confused.
"Hardly," I finally replied. "My uncle and aunt arranged all this without telling me anything about it. I was drugged, kidnapped, and brought here."
Robin started to laugh and stopped. "Did you say drugged and kidnapped "
"I know exactly what she means. That's how I felt," Teal said. "My father arranged for me to be transported here. He was nice enough to tell me I was going to a special school, but my parents didn't even let me take a change of clothing. Daddy had a hired goon bring me to the airport and to the plane. Next thing I knew, I was flying away and no one told me where I was going. They kept the windows shut, too. They gave me something to drink, and before I knew it, I was asleep, so I was drugged, too. When I woke up, I was here and dressed in this rag and these stupid clodhoppers as well as this...diaper."
