Dark, moreish and chilling – the countdown to Christmas is on … and time is running out.
Every day in December, a gift is left for Eleri in the abandoned tower block opposite her flat. At first, she can’t help but be flattered, hoping that her Secret Santa is enigmatic Ras – a boy she has history with. But with each day that passes, the gifts get darker and more dangerous. Is this a harmless bit of festive fun? Or does this have something to do with Nina’s disappearance last year? If so … will Eleri be next?
This thriller is the ultimate blend of haunting and festive. Foregrounding themes of disability and broken families: Eleri’s single mum has cerebral palsy, Sarah Naughton was shortlisted for the Costa Children’s Book Award with her YA novel THE HANGED MAN RISES.
Great for Ages 13+.
