Book of Week

Big image

Title: Company of Ghosts

Author: Berlie Doherty

Summary: It was a seascape, moody with rocks and cliffs and wild showers of spray. Ellie’s own reflection was drawn into it, like a ghost image among the lights and shadows.
‘That’s our island,’ Morag said.
‘It looks mysterious.’
‘It is. That’s where we’re going tomorrow.’
Ellie is excited to be going with Morag’s family to their beautiful island, but when she finds herself abandoned there, things begin to change. Footsteps, shadows, strange lights, a haunting song; more and more she becomes aware that she is not really on her own.

See you on Tuesday 6 January at 0830! Happy Holidays!
