Sixteen-year- old Mallory is sent away to boarding school to start afresh after her boyfriend bled to death in her kitchen. Although she was the one who stabbed him, she can’t remember anything that happened that night....

But something, or someone, has followed her to her new life. As she begins to doubt what is real and what is not, and hears strange whispers in the night, Mallory comes to question her own sanity. Then a pupil is found dead and even she can’t be sure if she’s the one responsible...

This psychological thriller about the power of fear will keep readers wondering and guessing throughout. Narrated in Mallory’s voice, the reader is never sure quite who to trust, and will be gripped from the first pages of this absorbing and enthralling page-turner.
