SEAGLASS by Eloise Williams reviewed by Sharon Tregenza

SEAGLASS by Eloise Williams

Who doesn't love a good ghost story and Seaglass by Eloise Williams IS a good ghost story. 

Lark, a thirteen year old girl, is going through a bad time. A sick mother, a troubled sister and an estranged best friend leaves her feeling lonely and angry. A family holiday in Wales sounds like a good idea. But things get even more complicated when Lark, and her younger sister Snow, become entangled with a young ghost - a mysterious figure in a green dress. Who is she and what does she want with Snow?

The bleak setting of the out of season caravan park adds a spooky atmospheric touch as the story grows in suspense and tension.

'Seaglass' deals with the important themes of grief, discrimination and bullying while never digressing from the path of a 'gripping story'.

It's written mainly for Middle Grade but can be enjoyed by anyone. A thoroughly good read.
