Product Description

Ever since Jem’s big sister Gracie ran away from home, Jem has wondered whether she could be to blame. Something she said before Gracie left is preying on her mind. Jem couldn’t be the reason why she vanished, could she? But one summer, a series of spooky coincidences makes Jem wonder if there’s more to the real story. Can Jem find the truth – and will Gracie ever come home? Surprises and secrets transform Jem’s summer in this brilliant novel from a queen of girl’s fiction.

    I wouldn’t mind if we had christmas decorations out all year, it’d be different! But I would mind if my dad was a clown. I hate clowns and it wouldn’t be very good if i was scared of my dad! * * * * +1/2.
