    1. Celia Rees born 1949 is an English author of children s literature, including some horror and fantasy books.She was born in 1949 in Solihull, West Midlands but now lives in Leamington Spa with her husband and teenage daughter Rees attended University of Warwick and earned a degree in History of Politics After university, she taught English in Coventry secondary schools for seventeen years, during which time she began to write.During her time in teaching she asked several of her pupils why they wouldn t read the books they were given and what they wanted to read about The pupils said that they wanted books with action, horror, danger, magic and pirates.All of these are main themes in Rees books.

    2. This is an exciting and often frightening exploration of family, friendship, good, and evil.

    3. Starting off was rather difficult. I just couldn't get into the story. I actually had to force myself to pick up the book and read, and after a few pages I'd be done with it again. The characters, while they did act like true siblings would--try to scare each other and such--they didn't impress me much, and the plot didn't seem to start to get exciting until about half-way through.It would be good for 12+ who enjoy ghost mysteries, but just a note: there is occult activity and death.

My realization opened my eyes to the shallow characters and unappealing ending.I would still, however, recommend this book to a younger audience, provided they only read it once.
