The Writing On The Wall – Jenny Eclair


Interest Age – from 14 yrs.

Summer 1975: Helena is bored out of her mind – there’s absolutely nothing to do and her supposed “best friends” Gwen and Elaine have jetted off on holiday to the South of France without her. The only saving grace is that she’s allowed to re-decorate her room – bring on the purple floral wallpaper.

Summer 2021: New to the north, Hermione’s mum has moved her away from London and all her friends to start a new life with new boyfriend Paul, who resembles a slab of meat from the butchers.
Just as well she can paint over that hideous wallpaper in her new room. As she peels it back, Hermione discovers Helena’s writing underneath, and she’s transported back to summer 1975, when the girls became instant friends. But then Hermione uncovers a shocking truth which suggests Helena is in great danger…
Hermione found the writing on the wall. But can she save Helena?
