Vera reluctantly goes with her friend Stella to her summer house in the archipelago. She thinks Stella is childish and that they’ve grown apart during middle grade.
However, Vera enjoys it more than she expected. Especially when they decide to go camping for a few days in the woods with Stella’s older brother Jack and his friend Adam.
Vera feels excited when they row their boat to the other side of the lake, but they barely set up their tent before mysterious things start to happen. A young boy turns up on the first night. He is chased by someone and warns them of staying. And then they see a light from inside the abandoned house not too far from them. Does the boy live there?
When they hear a strange noise from the house a little later, they decide to find out what’s going on. When you think the excitement has reached its peak, you’ll feel icy chills running up your spine…
A page turner for 9-12-year olds, with psychological thrill and spot-on friendships.
