The Crowham Martyrs (Jane McLoughlin)

Do i believe in ghosts? i don't know, but i do love a good ghost story. From a young age i loved watching TV programmes like "Most Haunted" and also being born on Halloween i also truly believed i was a witch... WHEN I WAS LITTLE OK! So when i got the chance to read a book that has ghosts in i was excited! I like to see peoples different perspectives on ghost's and how they involve them into the story. Plus i love a good boarding school story!

This book is about a young girl called Maddy Deeprose who can see ghosts, she has always seen ghosts and they never really bother her too much. Maddy only lives with her mother who decides to send her to a boarding school. During her time at Crowham Martys Maddy is not alone in thinking it is a creepy place, but she gets on with life until her friends start to disappear, weird things are happening around her and everyone seems to be keeping a secret from her! Something evil is at Crowham Martys and Maddy seems to be in the middle of it.

One thing i liked about the book is when you get to the end and find out everything you need to know, you think back over what you have read and realise that you have been getting clues all along! It was very clever in the way this was done and makes me want to read the book again! Just so i can pick up all the clues again! I also liked how the book made you feel, nothing was reviled straight away and therefore you it makes you creeped out too!!

The only negative about this book is that i felt the beginning of the book needed a little more personal/history explanation, but that is more of something i personally like.

I would rate this book 5/5
