Winner of the RNA Young Adult Romantic Novel Award 2012.

A mysterious boy. A haunting secret.

Synopsis

Dark Ride by Caroline Green

A shiver crawled up my spine. It felt like the loneliest place in the world. For a second I thought I caught a snatch of music in the air, but it was just the wind whistling through cracks in the fairground hoardings.

My instincts screamed, ‘Run away, Bel! Run away and never return!’
But instead my fingers closed around the ticket in my pocket.
Admit one.

Bel has never met anyone like Luka. And the day she follows him into the abandoned fairground, she is totally unprepared for the turn her life is about to take.

Reviews

'Full of tension, mystery and real-life drama, Dark Ride is not to be missed.’
Chicklish

'Bel is a realistic teenager, she can be moody and mouthy but you are drawn to her and feel her loneliness like it was your own. An impressive debut . . . impossible to put down.'
Goodreads

'Unputdownable.'
Armadillo Magazine

About the Author

Caroline Green

Caroline Green is an experienced freelance journalist who has written stories since she was a little girl. She vividly remembers a family walk when she was ten years old when she was so preoccupied with thoughts of her new ‘series’ that she almost walked into a tree.

Caroline’s stories tend to grow from a particular atmosphere, in the case of Dark Ride, it was the image of a grotty and unloved seaside town in the middle of winter, where a lonely boy sat hunched on a bench, staring out to sea . . .

Caroline is a self-confessed ‘book geek’ and found that as her two young boys grew she began to take a serious interest in children’s and YA fiction. Her first writing in this genre won the teen category of a competition run by Little Tiger Press at the Winchester Writer’s Conference in 2009.

Finding time to write with two children and a job isn’t always easy but Caroline works on the principle that writing is a bit like knitting a scarf: if you just do a little bit whenever you can, before you know it, you’ll have something growing in a satisfying way before your eyes.

Caroline lives in North London with her husband, two sporty sons and one very bouncy labrador retriever.
