Anna and her mum Kate have moved into Dragon House - a large, decrepit old ruin. Kate is planning some major renovations to the house - then she'll sell it on. But some locals seem to have other ideas. Can the house be calling them back?

Part of the new Fresh Shades series, this book is exciting and fast-paced, keeping within the style of the Shades 2.0 series. It is perfect for reluctant teens who still want an exciting, unpatronising read that is relevant to their interests and concerns, but who don't want to read a longer novel. With a length of only 6,000 words, and filled with drama, this story will appeal to all reluctant teen readers.
