Seaglass by Eloise Williams is a chilling contemporary ghost story for middle grade readers from the award-winning author of Gaslight.

Lark struggles when her family and their friends go on holiday in a lonely caravan site on the Pembrokeshire coast for the autumn half term. Her mother is ill, her little sister has stopped speaking and she has fallen out with her best friend. Is a girl in a green dress following her in the fog? Or is her sister playing tricks on her? When a local woman tells her ‘the girl’ comes to take sisters, Lark finds herself fighting to save her family.
 
The ghost and family storylines are cleverly woven together to address themes of identity and prejudice in a chilling and entertaining contemporary ghost story from the award-winning author of Gaslight, winner of the Wales Arts Review Young People’s Book of the Year 2017.

Praise for Seaglass:

'A fascinating mystery wrapping a sensitive portrayal of adolescence as Lark is tumbled and changed by the storms and calms of growing up like the seaglass of the title.' Celia Rees

'Brilliant. So atmospheric, and chilling, and gripping, but with real warmth at its heart. Loved the heroine; a character of real complexity, and Eloise Williams' writing is as shining and beautiful as the book’s title.' Kiran Milwood-Hargrave

'What a book. Powerful and thought-provoking, with family and friendship at its core and so much to say about the importance of words and compassion. Truly exceptional.' Amy Wilson

‘Much more than a seriously spooky and atmospheric ghost story, Seaglass is also a powerful portrait of a family in crisis, with a completely convincing teen narrator. Fantastic stuff!’ Lucy Strange

'Seaglass is definitely a book to add to your reading list - you won't be disappointed!’ The Book Activist

'I adored her previous novel, Gaslight but I think Lark and Snow might have stolen my heart. 10/10 for Seaglass.' Rhian Ivory
 
'I absolutely adored this book! A proper ghost story, swirling with atmosphere and tension, all tangled in those liminal areas between land and sea, life and death, anger and sorrow and childhood and adult life. A true pleasing terror, and beautifully crafted.' Kenilworth Books

'A deliciously atmospheric ghost story set on the salty windswept Welsh coast.' Fiona Noble, The Bookseller
