The Considine Curse
Ever woken up to an eerie howl in the night and wondered what it was? This creepy tale about the Considine family might just have the answer.
On the day of her grandmother’s funeral, 14-year-old Mariel comes face-to-face with the rest of her family for the first time – including seven cousins she didn’t know existed. The welcome she gets isn’t exactly warm and it quickly becomes clear that the Considine cousins are not what you would call normal.
What with Elspeth whispering malicious poetry in her ear, and Gerald telling her to stay away, Mariel would happily just forget they existed and fly back to her friends in Australia. But, the cousins have a dark secret and Mariel’s curiosity gets the better of her – as will yours once you pick up this addictive adventure tale that’s perfect for 10-year-olds.
