The Girl Who Wasn't There

We love Karen’s new take on Gothic mystery. Best friends. School friends. Ghosts of the past. This is set in one of those creepy old Victorian schools where it always seems like something awesomely spooky should happen. And you won’t be disappointed. Maisie’s dad has a new job as live-in caretaker of a Victorian school. One night, Maisie sees something strange: a girl’s face in the window of a high tower. Who is she, and what is her link to Maisie? Can Maisie solve a haunting mystery from many years before? If you’d enjoy Jacky Wilson set at Hogwarts, you definitely have to read this book!
