Three eerie tales. Three strikes of a match in the dark. Three desperate battles for life. Three spine-tingling novellas by major YA authors, full of suspense, danger and darkness. Goodbye, light! Hello, night! First is Lucy Christopher’s aptly named The Darkness: a brooding tale of loss and suspense set in a world where everyone has disappeared. Next up is The Twins of Blackfin by Kat Ellis, which brings you a grave, a crypt, a journal and other darkly creepy things. Finally, Rhian Ivory’s modern YA retelling of The Little Match Girl sees Nia lying badly injured in a tunnel after a mugging. All she has is three matches. But then she starts seeing pictures in the light…
