About The Book

‘SPOOKY. GRIPPING AND INTRIGUING.' Sophie McKenzie, author of Girl, Missing
Seventeen-year-old Elliott hasn't slept properly for six months. Ever since the accident that nearly killed him, a shadowy figure has made its presence felt - a figure only he can see. Elliott is convinced his near-death experience has enabled him to contact the dead. But are his ghostly visions real, or the effects of a damaged mind?

When Elliott gets a job at a supposedly haunted museum it seems like the perfect chance to discover what's really going on. But his arrival doesn't just cause a stir amongst the living. Unwittingly, Elliott uncovers the museum's terrible secret ... and a spirit hell-bent on using him for revenge. 

A brilliant, spine-tingling YA novel by award-winning author M. Harrison.

‘Chilling’ The Bookseller

‘a beautifully written, gripping, thoroughly spooky young adult novel… Unsettling, eerie, with intriguing characters and a compelling, satisfying plot full of twists and turns… I loved it.’ Sarah Singleton
‘It takes great skill to create an atmosphere that creeps off the page into your veins. Harrison’s subtlety and eye for detail lift this above any other spookfest.’ The Independent
