Published Summer 2004.

When Della moves house and starts a new school, she knows that she must expect changes. However, she little imagines that she will stumble into the spirit world - where the inhabitants seem so much more fun than her hostile new schoolmates.   

Della is taken to the limits of her strength and beyond as she faces the trials imposed by the class bully, who dominates the girls in her group and is determined to keep Della out. While the pressure mounts inexorably at school, life in the spirit-world also reaches a climax…

Suitable for 8 - 12 year-olds, the story nevertheless will have resonance for parents and teachers, too. Would you recognise the signs that a child is being bullied? And could you imagine the tortures he or she might be going through, while displaying symptoms of being only vaguely troubled?

At one level, this is a cracking good page-turner of a story that will engage the reader, of virtually any age, from beginning to end. At another level, it explores a social problem which is notoriously difficult to identify and root out.

"A vivid story combined with the great mission of beating bullying and the awful fear that it imposes.  That makes it an entertaining, encouraging read, to be recommended."
   Neil Kinnock
