Hollow Pike

Written by Juno Dawson

Hollow Pike Synopsis

A gripping YA thriller from award-winning writer Juno Dawson, with a dash of romance and intriguing paranormal elements, set in Hollow Pike - a small town with a big history of witchcraft. Something wicked this way comes... Lis London thought she'd be safe in the country, but even in the country she can't escape her own nightmares. Over and over, she dreams that someone is trying to kill her. Lis thinks she's being paranoid - after all, who would want to murder her? She doesn't believe in the local legends of witchcraft. She doesn't believe that anything bad will really happen to her. But you never know do, do you? Not until you're alone in the woods, after dark - and a twig snaps...
