Product description

By the best-loved author of the Thirteen Treasures series! Three sassy sisters. Three magical objects – and one ancient curse… It’s Halloween, and it’s Betty Widdershins’ birthday. She’s about to turn thirteen, and break Granny’s biggest rule. With her little sister, Charlie, she’ll pretend to go trick or treating. But instead, she’ll sneak onto the ferry. Just for one night, she’ll escape Crowstone Island for the forbidden shores beyond. But Betty never thought to wonder why Granny has so many rules. After all, nobody ever told her about the family curse. Or about the condemned prisoner thirsting for revenge. Or the magical objects that could change Betty’s fate. Will the Widdershins sisters be able to save themselves – and free themselves?

  • An utterly enchanting tale of magic, destiny and family
  • Michelle Harrison is a star of children’s fantasy fiction
  • She won the Waterstones Prize for The Thirteen Treasures
  • Her other books include One Wish and The Other Alice
