LoveReading View on The Crowham Martyrs

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
