Synopsis

The Scream by Penny Bates

An attack by two dogs has scarred Sally Johnson for life. The physical scars have almost disappeared, but deeper scars remain. Her family moves to Cornwall to start a new life. But it's hard to begin again when the hounds on the moors remind her of the dreadful attack. Can Sally ever find a way to put the past behind her? Recently republished as a new edition, this book is one of the Shades 2.0 series. This book is perfect for reluctant teens who still want an exciting, unpatronising story that is relevant to their interests and concerns, but who don't want to read a longer novel. With a length of only 6,000 words, and filled with drama, this story will appeal to all reluctant teen readers.
