Summary

At Cricklepit School Juniper feels safe with Ranjit and the reassuring presence of teachers like Mr Merchant and Miss Plum. But at home life is sometimes as frightening as her dreams, which start like beautiful fairy tales but always end in terror.

As a small child she always loved the story of ‘The Juniper Tree’, for all its sadness, feeling her name linked them together. Now it raises disturbing echoes in her life, and she dare not tell even Ranjit what she fears and hopes.

Juniper is a powerful and haunting book which makes a notable addition to Gene Kemp’s stories about the pupils of Cricklepit School.
