Product description

A gorgeously moody tale set on a haunted island. Think true beauty and truly scary can’t live side by side? Oh so very wrong. ‘It was a seascape, moody with rocks and cliffs and wild showers of spray. Ellie’s own reflection was drawn into it, like a ghost image among the lights and shadows.’ Does that sound dreamy? We think so. And it only gets better. Ellie is joining Morag’s family on a trip to their wild Scottish island. But when she finds herself abandoned there, things start to change. Footsteps, shadows, strange lights, a haunting song. Ellie isn’t really alone…

  • Carnegie Medal longlisted fiction by a legendary writer
  • The best kind of ghost story – atmospheric, chilling and moving
  • Berlie Doherty has previously won the Carnegie Medal twice
  • “Fabulous… Berlie Doherty doesn’t put a foot wrong” – Bookbag
