Wish Me Dead
by Helen Grant (Author)
When six teenagers head to a witch’s house in the middle of the night in the midst of a lonely forest, the reader knows that the outcome can’t be good. Throw in drinking, uncertainty, attraction and obsession – not forgetting a séance and the tension soars. Steffi, the reluctant protagonist, gets sucked in and goes along with the others’ plan. Not expecting the séance to work, she is the most surprised to discover that only her wishes come true. Soon everyone wants her to wish for them – each with their own demands.
When things get out of control and the body count rises, Steffi turns to her best friend – the only person she can trust. Helen Grant has written a clever tense teen thriller with multiple twists and turns – and an outcome you wouldn’t expect. A great sense of place and credible characterisation contributes to this gripping tale, which is sure to attract attention.
