The haunting of Drearcliff Grange School

Newman, Kim2018
Books, Manuscripts
Of course, Drearcliff Grange School was haunted. Amy Thomsett of the Fourth Form is confident she can solve any mystery, sleuth out any secret and defy any dark force. With her friends in the Moth Club, she has faced the unknown and become stronger. It seems to be her destiny to become a paladin, a defender of decency and a warrior for just causes. Under the guidance of Miss Gossage, Amy takes part in the Great Game, a contest of skill against other institutes of learning. In the London fog, the girls of Drearcliff Grange compete with the female felons of Lobelia Draycott's House of Reform and the privileged lads of St Cuthbert's School for the Sons of the Humble and Pious. In a nightmare, and in the cellars of a house in Piccadilly, Amy glimpses a spectre who might have dogged her all her life. For a paladin, ordinary ghosts are no worry. But the Broken Doll is not an ordinary ghost.
