Description

I’m all alone . . . Please come find me! When Maddie opens her notebook in class, she sees these words scrawled in blood-red ink on every page. When the same words mysteriously appear on the classroom chalkboard, Maddie begins to realize that someone—or something—in her new school is trying to contact her. Not long after, Maddie hears mysterious footsteps in an empty school corridor. Most frightening of all, Maddie feels ghostly hands pulling on her body when she dives into the school swimming pool. Could these frightening incidents have anything to do with one of Lakeside School’s pupils who disappeared without a trace many decades ago? Follow Maddie as she searches for answers and dares to solve a terrible mystery that has haunted her school. The Ghostly Secret of Lakeside School is part of Bearport’s Cold Whispers II series. This bone-chilling book is the fiction companion to Spooky Schools from Bearport’s best-selling nonfiction series Scary Places.
