Interest Age teen - Reading Age 8+

Bali Rai hits hard in this dark and haunting teen novel. Nothing has gone well for Sam since he and his mother were forced to leave their comfortable home after his dad’s disappearance under unpleasant circumstances. When a beautiful girl befriends him in the middle of a freak snowstorm on the grim estate where he lives, he feels his life will take a turn for the better. But Cassie is no ordinary girl; soon Sam finds himself on a trail of revenge with the most dangerous consequences.

Synopsis

Shivers by Bali Rai

Meeting Cassie was the best moment of Sam's life. So why has everything fallen apart since? Can he really trust her at all? Terrifying ghost story. Sam hates life on the council estate - everyone knows why he and his mum had to move there and they won't let him forget it. When he meets the beautiful and mysterious Cassie he quickly falls head over heels. But when Sam's devotion starts to cloud his judgment and his life begins to spin out of control, he still can't seem to walk away. Will the truth about Cassie be more than he can bear? With a reading age of 8+ this is also suitable for reluctant, struggling and dyslexic teens.
