“He came in the early morning, at about half past two. His feet padded along the balcony, slinking silently past the closed doors of other flats. No one glimpsed his shadow flickering across the curtain or noticed the uneven rhythm of his footsteps.”
This amazing story is about a girl who lives with a strict, but kind nan. Suddenly, she hears footsteps in the middle of the night and the next thing, she is sent off to stay with her beautiful mother, Goldie. Cassy has no idea why. Something has gone, very, very wrong.
This tale draws you in immediately and I loved it! The age range is 9-12 years and I hope you enjoy it.
