The game is called Beatie Bow, and the kids play it for the thrill of giving themselves a scare. It’s Beatie Bow, risen from the dead!
When Abigail is drawn in, the game quickly changes from a harmless little scare to an extraordinary adventure, as she is transported to a place that is strangely familiar....
And in a Sydney she barely recognises, she’ll meet the real Beatie Bow and the family that will change her life.

Beattie, as she was so feisty and prickly, but brave
Beautiful narration by Kate Hood. She adds an atmosphere and authentic voice that really lifts the story off the page, giving life to the lovely Dovey, feisty Beattie and even the awful Gibbie..
Very much a coming of age story, so plenty of reflection/dwelling on a very female take on first love. Bit much for the 8-10 year-old boys I was playing it too. Better suited to mid teen girls.
