The Lovereading4Kids comment

A thrilling story that twists and turns as the deep and menacing malevolence at its heart exercises its power. Always an odd child and an orphan since birth, when fifteen year old Eva disappears it is said that she committed suicide. But luckily Eva hasn’t completely disappeared; her ghostly self begins to unravel the mystery of her own disappearance – and much, much more – in a chilling drama strongly set in a crumbling stately home. Rich in atmosphere and tension it reaches a tremendous conclusion.


Ghost of a Chance by Rhiannon Lassiter

Last Chance ... 'You know that girl, the one in my class? The one that died. She lived here.'

Lost Chance ...'You're dead, Eva Chance. You died and nobody noticed. You died and nobody cared.'

No more Chances left ...They said it was suicide, but Eva knows she was murdered. Now she inhabits a sinister spirit world along with the tortured and malevolent ghosts of her ancestral home. Solving the crime could end her existence - but if the killer isn't found how many more will die?
