Adapted from another of her successful children's novels, Anne Fine's sensitive and poignant play for young people is accompanied by stimulating background materials and activities designed to answer English Framework objectives. This is her fifth title in the series. Four young teenagers are surprised to find themselves grouped together on a school trip to a creepy old historical house. Here they uncover a secret room that has lain undiscovered and unopened for over 100 years -- what they find inside reveals not only a story from the past but also leads to a chain of disovery about themselves.
Anne Fine is the highly acclaimed childrens author of many successful novels including the Tulip Touch and Madame Doubtfire. Anne was also Children's Laureate between 2001 and 2003.
