A brand new story of friendship and ghostly mystery from one of the
best-loved UK writers for girls.

Maisie's dad has a new job as live-in caretaker of a Victorian secondary
school. Finding it hard to make friends, things change when
Maisie tells her new classmates about something strange she saw
the night before - a girl's face in the window of a gothic tower.
The girls tell Maisie about the ghost of a Victorian pupil rumoured

who looks exactly like Kat...
