Anna hasn't a friend in the world - until she meets Marnie among the sand dunes. But Marnie isn't all she seems...An atmospheric ghost story about friendship, families and loneliness. Sent away from her foster home one long, hot summer to a sleepy Norfolk village by the sea, Anna dreams her days away among the sandhills and marshes. She never expected to meet a friend like Marnie, someone who doesn't judge Anna for being ordinary and not-even-trying. But no sooner has Anna learned the loveliness of friendship than Marnie vanishes...

About the Author:

The second of four children of barrister parents, Joan Robinson spent her early childhood in Hampstead Garden Suburb. She went to seven schools, but passed no exams. Having always wanted to be an illustrator, she began with fourteen books for small children, and later moved on to older children's fiction. She is internationally renowned for her TEDDY ROBINSON books.

Review:

"Beautifully planned, hauntingly written, these chapters hold a thrilling intensity... The most striking novel in its genre since Tom's Midnight Garden" Times Literary Supplement "Extraordinarily potent fantasy... the climax is both thrilling and intensely moving." The Spectator "Deeply perceptive" Children's Book News
