FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE CBCA BOOK OF THE YEAR HELICOPTER MAN
When Cassandra and her brothers climb the garden wall hoping to spot the ghost in the old hollow-eyed house, they have no idea what awaits within. Suddenly, and then seductively, they are drawn into a world long lost, a world preserved by a woman whose memories have kept her trapped in time and place.
But do the children really know the ghostly old lady as well as they think they do? Or is there something even more bizarre living under her roof?
From the author of the CBCA award-winning Helicopter Man comes a story of unexpected surprises that asks us to re-examine what we think we know of ugliness and beauty.
