Description of this Book

They were coming tonight to tell ghost stories. 'A tale to freeze the blood,' was the only rule. It's a stormy night in 1861 when there's a knock at the door of Villa Diodati. Lying in the snow is a dead girl, and with her, lots of questions. Like, why did she come? What was she looking for? And who was she running from? The breathtaking new book from Emma Carroll, critically-acclaimed author of Frost Hollow Hall, The Girl Who Walked On Air, In Darkling Wood and The Snow Sister. Strange Star is a deliciously creepy story inspired by Mary Shelly and Frankenstein, brought to life by a leading talent in children's literature.
