Seaglass by Eloise Williams

Seaglass by Eloise Williams book review
She will come for you... Lark struggles when her family and their friends go on holiday in a lonely caravan site on the Welsh coast for the autumn half term. Her mother is ill, her little sister has stopped speaking and she has fallen out with her best friend. Is a girl in a green dress following her in the fog? Or is her sister playing tricks on her? When a local woman tells her the girl comes to take sisters, Lark finds herself the only one who can save her family.
Having read another Eloise Williams book, Gaslight at the end of last year (I took a break from book reviewing last year so I'm afraid there's no review, but it is a good book!) I decided it was time to give Seaglass a go as it'd been sitting on my to-be-read pile for a little while. I was after a simple read after the previous book and this fit the bill perfectly.

Lark's life is crumbling apart when she shares an overheard conversation with her sister, their mother is dying. Since that conversation her sister has refused to speak and her parents have decided they all need a holiday, it's the last thing Lark needs. When they arrive at the caravan site Lark keeps seeing a strange girl in a green dress, a girl her sister has become close friends with but when a local women tells her that the girls visits to take away sisters Lark must find out who she is and why she's trying to take her sister.

Whilst being a relatively easy read, this book was thoroughly enjoyable, the girl in the green dress was an interesting supernatural twist to the story but I also liked that a young adult novel was tackling other themes too (I don't want to say too much as I like to try and keep my reviews spoiler free). I raced through this book in just a couple of days and would recommend it both for it's target audience of young adults as well as adults too. I hope Eloise Williams writes a new book soon as I've loved her previous two novels so would definitely love to read more!

Rating: ★★★★☆
