Lorraine Cannell

A new author - I like to go outside my comfort zone and it's well worth doing.

The Hollow link

My review - 

Fifteen year-old Liv knows she was in an accident three years ago and has no memories of her early years. Like her Aunt Marie, she has the gift of seeing the spirit world. She’s been seeing young women of her own age, but with their faces replaced by a rippling effect so she can’t tell who they are. They want her to find them. Then her own friend, Katie, goes missing. Her parents are over-protective and her relationship with them is strained and damaged. This gift of hers is all tied up with her inability to see her own past; to look into ‘the Hollow’.

This is a very spooky and exciting story which I read in a couple of days. It’s hard to put down. We know Liv can see spirits who need help but she herself finds it hard to get help from her own family. The feeling that, even though supposedly for her own good, things are being kept from her is well portrayed and the reader shares her frustration. This book combines the classic murder mystery with an exciting supernatural element which I really enjoyed.
