About the book
Fourteen-year-old Frankie Ward is used to being the new girl at school, but even she is unprepared for life at St Mark's College. Finding herself isolated from the rest of the girls, Frankie is drawn to flamboyant and dramatic Suzy, who captivates her with stories of 'The Blue Lady' - the ghost of an ex-St Mark's pupil who died in mysterious and tragic circumstances. One night Suzy persuades Frankie to help her contact The Blue Lady via an Ouija Board - and the girls unleash a terrifying spirit who seems set on destroying not only their friendship but Suzy's sanity. Determined to rescue her friend, Frankie enlists the help of Seb, a mysterious and alluring boy from sister-school St Hilda's. Seb is as interested in St Mark's past as Frankie - but does he have as many dark secrets as the school?
Suzy broke the silence, "First we need to call the spirits."
"How?" I asked.
"We close our eyes and say 'Spirits come to us' three times."
I tried not to snigger at how ludicrous it all sounded - as if summoning the spirits of the underworld was as easy as muttering a few words. "And then what?" I asked playfully, widening my eyes and smirking.
Suzy chewed on her lip and looked down at the Ouija Board she'd just drawn, "And then we each place a finger on the coin and ask the spirits questions. If it works, then the coin will move."
Suzy drew in a deep breath and seemed to steady her thoughts silently. Then her eyes locked into mine and gave me that mischievous glint that I'd come to know so well, "Ready?" she asked. I nodded. "Close your eyes."
I closed my eyes and squeezed Suzy's hands in mine. We both chanted at the same time, "Spirits come to us. Spirits come to us. Spirits come to us."
Letter from the editor
Fourteen-year-old Frankie has barely eaten her first (not very nice) school dinner in the refectory when she meets the melodramatic and kooky Suzy from the year above. Together Frankie and Suzy unite against the prissy school cliques and before long Suzy has filled Frankie's waking (and dreaming) life with thoughts of the tragic ghosts who wander the corridors of the school, as well as introducing her to the exotic world of boys. Frankie's life is suddenly more eventful, more angst-making and increasingly more scary than it has ever been before... A wonderful, witty and sinister ghost story from a very talented author.
