Creepier than Coraline, and that’s saying something. This book has it all: the accident. The weird hunger. The whispers. The menacing dolls. The secrets. The terror. Need we go on? When Triss wakes up after her accident, she knows something is very wrong. She’s starving. Her sister is afraid of her. Her parents whisper behind closed doors. A frightening china doll speaks to her. Perhaps Triss’s diary holds a clue – but the pages have been ripped out. What is happening to her? This historical chiller is exquisitely beautiful, surreal, dark and terrifying all in one. Totally original and written with the cold purity of glass. Weep cobweb tears of joy.
