Synopsis

The Thirteen Secrets by Michelle Harrison

Red's past won't stay hidden. She's now living at Elvesden Manor under her real name, Rowan, and trying to put her terrible adventures behind her. But staying out of trouble isn't as easy as she'd hoped. Haunted by awful dreams of Hedgewitch's cottage - and of Eldritch, who swore revenge when she left him there to die - Red fears the fairy realm is about to draw her back in... But will she make it back, this time? Or will dark forces finally claim her...?

Q. What’s your best quality?
A. Optimism, or at least I like to think it is!
