Emma Chandler awakes in deserted train with only a ghost for company. Her body hurts and her memory is vanishing, as is the outside world and even the train itself. The ghost tells her to use the emergency stop button but Emma can't, she is too scared and too tired. What has happened to bring these two spirits together? This is the story of Emma Chandler and Emmy Fairchild, two children who look alike and have the same amazing gift, to run like the wind, but who come from different worlds, both on Earth but poles apart. Will they win the race of their lives? "Train Ghost" is a fast paced multi-layered and moving story for teenagers. The latest edition released in June 2009 has a brilliant new cover by artist Ian Purdy.

"Thrilling and brilliant!"Thomas Smith, St. Francis's School, Lincoln"spooky and dark...very interesting!"Lucy Harding, St Francis's School, Lincoln"a moving and gripping story about a friendship between Emma and Emmy, girls who come from different sides of the track ...told in alternating chapters between the girls and the ghost on the train leaving me wondering how these three stories were going to converge and when they did it was with a totally unexpected twist. A book that adults will get as much pleasure from as children." Karen Maitland, author Company of Liars"I really liked the way the chapters were linked together and I shed a tear at one point...plenty of build up and tension."D. F. Sheffield
