Thought provoking as well as intensely scary, Marcus Sedgwick's White Crow unfolds in three voices.
Rebecca has come to a small seaside village to spend the summer.
Ferelith offers to show Rebecca the secrets of the town . . . but at a price.
Finally, there's a priest whose descent into darkness illuminates the girls' frightening story.
White Crow is as beautifully written as it is horrifically gripping.
