Shadow Runners

Publisher: Chicken House


When 12 year old Miranda May is forced to leave her busy life in London and move to a small town where nothing ever happens, she begins to notice strange things happening - dark forces that cannot be explained. At first, Miranda thinks she's the only one who has noticed, but soon she begins to suspect that the other kids at school know something that Miranda doesn't - and she's determined to find out what it is. Together, Miranda and her new friends set out to uncover the mystery, before the evil that is shadowing them unleashes destruction.

Full of excitement and adventure, this is an ideal book for children at the transition between primary and secondary level. A gripping adventure, Shadow Runners challenges readers to think beyond the boundaries and to realise everything is not always what is seems.
