Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Valerie Mendes' gripping, fast-moving novel explores the whirlpools of change in teenagers' lives, the strengths of friendship, and the inescapable, binding pull of love. Thirteen-year-old Nathan is furious when his mum hauls him off to Cornwall for Christmas and then tells him they are to move there for good. He wants to be back with Dad, with his best friend, Tom, in his London life. But then he finds a cottage - and a girl. The girl in the attic. Who is she and what is the family secret that haunts her life?

Author Biography

Valerie Mendes was born in Buckinghamshire and attended the North London Collegiate School. Soon after taking a double honours degree in English and Philosophy at Reading University, she moved to Oxford, where she still lives. She is, proudly, the mother of the theatre and film director, Sam Mendes CBE. Valerie started writing stories when she was six. That summer she spent the first of many holidays in St Ives, Cornwall - a place which for her has always been particularly special, and where most of this book is set. Girl in the Attic is her eighth published book and her first full-length novel.
