AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'My name is Tessa. I am strong. I am brave. I do not cry. These are the only things I know for certain.

'I was found in the bush, ragged as a wild thing. I have no memory - not even of how I got the long, striping slashes across my back. They make me frightened of what I might remember.

'The policewoman, Connolly, found me a place in a boarding school and told me about her daughter, Cat, who went missing in the bush. I think there is a connection between Cat, me, and the strange things going on at this school.

'If I can learn Cat's story, I might discover my own - and stop it happening again.' (From the publisher's website.)
