Buried Thunder

Publisher: Oxford University Press

Bowler's skill in writing psychological novels for teenagers is borne out yet again in this chilling tale of a fifteen-year-old whose premonitions about murders may be construed as the outcome of uncertainty in her own life.

Maya has moved with her family to an old house in a remote village. She is uncomfortable about the house, and about the constant presence of a fox, which seems to draw her inexorably, against her will, away from the house and into disturbing and threatening situations.

On the surface this is a spooky thriller, but there are deeper issues addressed, and although the mysteries are 'solved', it still poses uncomfortable questions around predestination, tolerance, and the outcome of breakdowns in family relationships.
