Sometimes It Lingers


The last thing sixteen year old Ellie needs is drama, especially after leaving her own tragedy behind and moving to Gallow Ford, but when she comes across a boy called Ben doused in petrol and shaking on the side of a bridge, that’s exactly what she gets. Ben’s horrifying actions pull Ellie into a dark secret that she is determined to get to the bottom of, but will Ben’s brother, Tyler, help her dig up the truth, or is he, like other residents of Gallow Ford, trying to keep it buried? Ellie navigates new friendships and enemies to discover a truth so terrible that its wickedness has seeped into the cracks of Gallow Ford, leaving Ellie questioning what is real and what is the stuff of nightmares.
