The Lovereading4Kids comment

Interest Age 11+ Reading Age 8+. A wonderfully suspenseful and page-turning mystery and thriller rolled into one involving a girl, her step-brother, a boy ghost and an old knarled oak tree, with a clever and surprising twist at the end. Fear of a ghost and loathing for her step-brother, Sarah must make a decision that is life threatening, not just for her but perhaps for others too.

A NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR:

I have always loved ghost stories and I have always loved old trees. They both can only be heard in whispers and creaks. They are both tangled with age and secrets.

So I wanted to try and write a story about both a ghost and a tree. And when I’d begun it, other characters in the story started to interest me, like Sarah and Matt and how they felt about each other. Then the story had a new layer. A human layer. I hope you enjoy reading it. If you have any comments, my website is: www.geocities.com/catherinefisheruk. I’d love to hear from you.

Perfect for Reluctant Readers as well as keen readers. To view other titles we think are suitable for reluctant readers please click here.
