Description-

  • After a girl leaves her Maine island to start at a new school, strange events have her doubting her sanity . . .

    Thirteen-year-old Christina lives on Burning Fog Isle, off the coast of Maine—a beautiful place with only three hundred year-round residents. This year, she'll have to leave the island's little white schoolhouse to start school on the mainland. That also means living away from home with fellow islanders—Anya, Benji, and the crush-worthy Michael—at the historic Schooner Inne, a bed and breakfast owned by the principal and his wife, Mr. and Mrs. Shevvington.

    But on the mainland, no one is quite the same as they were at home. Benji and Michael seem less friendly. Anya is acting so strangely it seems she's slowly losing her mind. And while Christina doesn't know what's going on, she can't shake the feeling that the Shevvingtons are somehow behind it. No one else sees their eerie behavior—not her teachers, not her parents, not even her fellow island kids—making Christina wonder if she's the one going crazy . . .

    This creepy thriller by the bestselling author of The Face on the Milk Carton will have you on the edge of your seat.

    This ebook features an illustrated biography of Caroline B. Cooney including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author's personal collection.

Reviews-

  • Publisher's Weekly

    August 1, 1989
    Set on the coast of Maine, this horror novel is the first of a projected trilogy. Four children--Christine, Anya, Ben and Michael--are attending high school on the mainland. The new principal, Mr. Shevvington, and his toady wife have offered to board all the children from Burning Fog Isle for the school year. The islanders know that the mainland kids will pick on them, but that trouble pales as Christine becomes aware of something evil: Anya seems to be going mad, and Christine is sure that the loathsome Shevvingtons are behind it. They seem to be conspiring with the ocean for a human sacrifice. Short on logic and suspense, this novel may appeal to diehard horror fans, but Stephen King or Dean Koontz would might be a better choice. Ages 11-15.
