A chilling page-turner for all those who like a school story with a difference. A school with a dark past provides a troubled environment for new girl Frankie Ward. Initially friendless, Frankie links up with Suzy who is also an outsider and her friends James and Sebastian from the neighbouring boy’s school. From Suzy, Frankie learns some of the darker sides of the school’s history including the chilling story of its haunting by the Blue Lady, the ghost of a former pupil. Determined to find out the true story of the Blue Lady’s death, Suzy persuades Frankie to help her contact the spirit world through a Ouija board. Will they be able to cope with the answers it offers? When Frankie turns to Sebastian for help she finds he has more secrets that she hasn’t expected.
Fourteen-year-old Frankie Ward is used to being the new girl at school, but even she is unprepared for life at St Mark's College. Finding herself isolated from the rest of the girls, Frankie is drawn to flamboyant and dramatic Suzy, who captivates her with stories of 'The Blue Lady' - the ghost of an ex-St Mark's pupil who died in mysterious and tragic circumstances. One night Suzy persuades Frankie to help her contact The Blue Lady via an Ouija Board - and the girls unleash a terrifying spirit who seems set on destroying not only their friendship but Suzy's sanity. Determined to rescue her friend, Frankie enlists the help of Seb, a mysterious and alluring boy from sister-school St Hilda's. Seb is as interested in St Mark's past as Frankie - but does he have as many dark secrets as the school?
