First published in 1981, a story in which a ghost finds herself living with her family in a boarding school. She knows that she is one of four sisters and can't remember the accident that led to her death, but realises that the deadly game with Monigan the rag dog will cause another tragedy.

Review:

‘The complex plot, which twists and turns to the surprising climax, is absorbing, but equally interesting and frequently amusing are the family dynamics and the character sketches of the four fascinatingly eccentric sisters.’
Horn Book

‘Gripping… Profoundly satisfying.’
Publishers Weekly

From the Back Cover:

'I'm all right. I'm Here. I'm me. If I wasn't, I wouldn't even be frightened. I wouldn't know. But something has happened to me. I can't see myself at all, no even a smear of shadow on the road. There's been an accident.
STOP THAT'

The ghost turns up one summer day, alone in a world she once knew, among people who were once her family. She knows she is one of four sisters, but which one? She can be sure of only one thing – that there's been an accident.

As she struggles to find her identity, she becomes aware of a malevolent force stirring around her. Something terrible is about to happen. One of the sisters will die – unless the ghost can use the future to reshape the past. But how can she warn them when they don't even know she exists?
