Maddy Deeprose sees dead people: ghosts accompany her wherever she goes. Her mother has always warned her to keep this secret, but when Maddy starts at Crowham Martyrs School, her sixth sense seems to call up something evil and truly terrifying and Maddy can’t keep quiet any longer. Definitely in the category of ‘books to read with the lights on’, this is a thrilling supernatural page turner. McLoughlin builds the suspense with every chapter, while Maddy is a classic teen heroine: brave, troubled, isolated. Drawing on real events from the 16th century, this is a sophisticated piece of horror fiction for those brave enough to read it! ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

The Crowham Martyrs by Jane McLoughlin

Ghosts don't scare Maddy Deeprose. She's seen them all her life. And so when her mum sends her to creepy old boarding school, Crowham Martyrs, Maddy isn't worried. But when her friends start disappearing, Maddy knows it's time to be scared.
Something is lurking at Crowham Martyrs.

Something evil.

Is the place that is supposed to keep Maddy safe about to become the hunting ground?
