Stella Montgomery is in disgrace. The Aunts have sent her to Wakestone Hall, a grim boarding school where the disobedient are tamed and the wilful are made meek. But when a friend disappears, Stella is determined to find her – no matter the danger …
Soon Stella is thrown deeper into the mysteries of Wakestone … and her own past. Will Stella save her friend in time? And will she discover – at long last – where she truly belongs?
This book is suitable for readers between 8 and 12 years of age.
