Abstract:

September, 1953: Fourteen-year-old Barney Holland is promised a fresh start when he is offered a place at a boarding school on the remote North Sea island of Lindsey. Instead, he is shunned by his peers both for his status as a charity pupil and for being the replacement of a recently deceased student, the popular Cray. The arrival of Belinda Flood provides Barney with an unexpected ally, and both outsiders soon fall under the influence of charismatic senior pupil Ivor Morrell, who reigns over the forbidden corners of the school. Gripped by mounting horror at his discovery of secrets harboured by the isolated school community, Barney desires nothing more than to escape the island - and its haunted past - once and for all.
