Book Description

6 Jun 2013 The Blue Lady
Fourteen-year-old Frankie Ward is used to being the new girl at school, but even she is unprepared for life at St Mark's College. Finding herself isolated from the rest of the girls, Frankie is drawn to flamboyant and dramatic Suzy, who captivates her with stories of 'The Blue Lady' - the ghost of an ex-St Mark's pupil who died in mysterious and tragic circumstances. One night Suzy persuades Frankie to help her contact The Blue Lady via an Ouija Board - and the girls unleash a terrifying spirit who seems set on destroying not only their friendship but Suzy's sanity. Determined to rescue her friend, Frankie enlists the help of Seth, a mysterious and alluring boy from sister-school St Hilda's. Seth is as interested in St Mark's past as Frankie - but does he have as many dark secrets as the school?

A great read for myself and my 12 year old. Well written and kept interest from start to finish. Interesting ghost story on one side and though provoking issues on the other. Recommended.

Format:Paperback
The Blue Lady begins with Frankie's arrival St Mark's College an uppity boarding school with a history of disappearing students. Not that Frankie knows this as the start.

To begin with she is in the process of becoming the "real" Frankie. Having moved schools so many times she is fed up with blending in and wants to be herself. The reason I pick up on this is because Frankie might begin with this intention but as she becomes friends with Suzy she does what Suzy wants, she thinks what Suzy thinks.

The best thing about The Blue Lady is the history of the disappearance and the current haunting. I thought the old letters and articles between chapters worked really well and made the story more interesting.

While I enjoyed the ghost story I did struggle with the characters, particularly Frankie. Her budding romance with Seth wasn't that convincing as I didn't think there was enough depth to their interactions to warrant those emotions.

As a ghost story I think The Blue Lady works but I wasn't attached enough to the main characters to worry about them.

5.0 out of 5 stars A well written page turner 9 Jun 2013
By Alison
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have been looking forward to Eleanor Hawken's first book for slightly older readers and I was not disappointed. The story line hangs together well, and I did not want to put the book down once I had started. It also tackles some more serious issues, like how to cope if you are not the most popular girl in the school, and the possible long term consequences of prejudice. None of this gets in the way of what is a very good read. Looking forward to more...
