About the Event

We welcome back best-selling, prize winning children’s author Emma Carroll to the festival. Dubbed the ‘Queen of Historical Fiction’, her new book takes us to 1962. When Stevie and best friend Ray discover a runaway girl in the coal shed, both are dying for a bit of adventure, and when the girl begs for help, they readily agree. They soon realise they’ve taken on more than they bargained for. The girl reveals she’s on the run from people who are trying to poison her. Meanwhile, on the news, the Americans and Russians are arguing over missiles in Cuba.

As the threat of war grows, Anna’s behaviour becomes more mysterious. And when Stevie unearths a dark family secret, she wonders if Anna has come to World’s End Close on purpose, with a special message just for her . . .
