Best-selling teen author James Dawson turns his hand to horror in this chilling school story. Summoning up an old school ghost in front of a mirror in a room full of candles as part of a Halloween dare seems like a harmless prank. Bobbie is sure that it is just an old and harmless legend. But when girls begin to go missing and terrifying messages appear in unlikely places, it becomes clear that this is much, much more than just a story. The sinister reason why old-girl Mary haunts the past adds a contemporary twist to a blood curdling tale.

A Piece of Passion from Emma Matthewson, Editor-at-Large I am a real scaredy cat when it comes to watching scary films. So when I started reading the script for Say Her Name, touted as being an incredibly scary ghostly horror, set in a girls' boarding school, I was nervous. But I had seen and very much admired James Dawson's Hollow Pike, and so I was intrigued. And, boy, is Say Her Name scary! It is also funny, and very, very clever. James has been nominated for the UK Queen of Teen - and for good reason. He just 'gets' what's important for teenage readers. And how teenagers think, speak, bitch about each other, make up and break up. James's very funny writing, spiced with a ghostly chill is really quite unique. Read it and see what you think. But do beware of Bloody Mary. Oh, and have you got a dripping shower? Do get it checked out. Just in case...
