A gripping, page-turning adventure in which the new-fangled technology of film seems gradually to be taking over real life! Thirteen-year-old Penny Treadwell who owns and manages a magazine full of spine tingling stories, is excited that one of the stories is to be turned into a film. Actors and film-makers gather in a large house in a lonely setting; all looks ready for the adaptation but all too soon, things begin to go wrong. Can Penny stop the spooky drama that is about to enfold her? And will the film begin to affect the outcome of her own life?
