Remember how I took part in a Halloween Readathon last month? Yeah, well… I didn’t do very well. To be honest, I didn’t have very high hopes for myself anyway. I’m so rubbish at reading things within a specific time frame! However, I did manage to read two books from my list: Daughter of the Burning City by Sarah Foody, and The Creakers by Tom Fletcher. That’s what I’m going to be reviewing today!
What silently waits in the shadows at night? What’s under your bed, keeping just out of sight?
Do you ever hear strange, creaking noises at night? Ever wonder what makes those noises? Lucy Dungston always did.
Until, one morning, Lucy discovers that all the grown-ups have disappeared – as if into thin air. Chaos descends as the children in Lucy’s town run riot. It’s mayhem. It’s madness. To most kids, it’s amazing!
But Lucy wants to find out the truth. Lucy lost her dad not long ago, and she’s determined not to lose her mum too. She’s going to get her back – and nothing is going to stop her . . .
. . . except maybe the Creakers.
