Casey is sixteen & does not appreciate her parents or her privileged life. When her family moves to a remote old mansion in the countryside, she is determined to rebel. Bored and angry after leaving her friends back in the city she decides to defy everyone, refusing to make friends with the neighbours and determined to be alone. But her bad attitude is about to change. On a woodland walk she comes across a house that looks exactly like her own, but is burned out. It haunts her with terrifying feelings which draw her back there again and again. This begins a rollercoaster ride of fear, sadness and hurt. The house weaves the web which entangles Casey with the boy called Lee and her fated future. Gradually, Casey begins to piece together the sinister clues from her journal entries and sketchbooks that manifest themselves in that house. Eventually they lead her to a terrifying discovery. Can she look deep into herself and mend her selfish ways before she destroys herself and the people she loves?
A review from a satisfied customer:
”I really enjoyed this book, despite being about 20 years older than the average reader of this kind of genre. It keeps you guessing until the end, as there are two stories elaborately woven together, and you’re not quite sure how it’s all going to work out. Highly recommended for a lazy afternoon’s read, especially if you’re a teenage girl with an attitude problem!”
