By Nicholas Fisk

Rating: 4 stars

Everybody is surprised when Great Aunt Emma, who nobody’s ever heard of, comes to stay, but Tim and Beth start becoming more and more alarmed at her behaviour and must find the truth behind her.

This book was written as a series of diary entries by Tim after Great Aunt Emma comes to stay and there’s a slow mounting sense of unease as things start to become first unusual tending towards creepy and then downright scary, leading to an actually quite horrific final scene. An excellent book, with Fisk on great form.
