AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Ebony Marshall is in her final year of high school. Five months, two weeks and four days . . . She can't wait to leave the town where she's known only as ‘Black'. Because of her name, of course. But for another reason, too.

'Everyone says Black Marshall is cursed.

'Three of her best friends have died in tragic accidents. After Oscar, the whispers started. Now she's used to being on her own. It's easier that way.

'But when her date for the formal ends up in intensive care, something in quiet little Dainsfield starts to stir. Old secrets are revealed and terrifying new dangers emerge.

'If only Black could put all the pieces together, she could work out who her real enemies are. Should she run for her life, or stay and fight?' (Publication summary)
