Imagine what it must feel like to be a doll within a doll, to lose your own identity and spend your life in darkness - A" Joey thought he'd done all the research on his new classmates before he met Shane and Geraldine. Shane is his new best friend, calm and cool with a personality for every occasion and a strange sense of recklessness about him. But why does Shane make Geraldine so uncomfortable? They're both hiding something from Joey and the answer can only be found in the old house on Castledawson Avenue - Souls are snatched and gambles taken in this distinctly Irish supernatural novel set in Blackrock, Dublin. Based on the concept of changelings, Bolger's first young adult novel is a thrilling gothic ghost story with a romantic subplot.
