The Girl Who Wasn't There, Paperback


A brand new story of friendship and ghostly mystery from one of the best-loved UK writers for girls.

Maisie's dad has a new job as live-in caretaker of a Victorian secondary school.

The girls tell Maisie about the ghost of a Victorian pupil rumoured to wander the corridors.

One particular student called Kat seems captivated by what Maisie has seen, and - both feeling like outsiders - they quickly become close.

One night, though, Maisie comes across a tin box full of photos and notes.

It's plainly decades old, and, squinting at the photos - belonged to a smiling girl who looks exactly like Kat...
