Back cover copy

You and your friends are just normal kids. But weird things always seem to happen around you.

Like when a reckless, dangerous dare backfires.

Or when mysterious emails start arriving - from someone who died months ago.

Or when an important visitor at your school collapses - and it seems like it's no accident.

It's up to you to solve these mysteries - before it's too late . . .

Three page-turning thrillers from bestselling author Malorie Blackman.
