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...

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

From the Back Cover:

Anna lives with foster parents, a misfit with no friends, always on the outside of things. Then she is sent to Norfolk to stay with old Mr and Mrs Pegg, where she runs wild on the sand dunes and around the water. There is a house, the Marsh House, which she feels she recognises – and she soon meets a strange little girl called Marnie, who becomes Anna’s first ever friend. Then one day, Marnie vanishes. A new family, the Lindsays, move into the Marsh House. Having learnt so much from Marnie about friendship, Anna makes firm friends with the Lindsays – and learns some strange truths about Marnie, who was not all she seemed...
