House of horrors

The Cavendish Home for Boys and Girls
by Claire Legrand

Victoria likes everything "just so." She detests imperfection and any hint of sloppiness. Which is why her friendship with Lawrence is so puzzling. He's everything Victoria is not - messy, dreamy, and obsessed about piano. She's often had to be sharp with him. But then Lawrence goes missing. And he’s not the only one. Victoria soon discovers that The Cavendish Home for Boys and Girls is not what it appears to be. Kids go in but come out…different. Or they don’t come out at all.

A creepy, sinister book, with immediate appeal to fans of Neil Gaiman's Coraline.
