About the Book

THE MAGICAL CONCLUSION TO STELLA'S AWARD-WINNING STORY

Stella Montgomery is in disgrace. The Aunts have sent her to Wakestone Hall, a grim boarding school where the disobedient are tamed and the wilful are made meek. But when a friend disappears, Stella is determined to find her - no matter the danger ...

Soon Stella is thrown deeper into the mysteries of Wakestone ... and her own past. Will Stella save her friend in time? And will she discover - at long last - where she truly belongs?

Bestselling writer-illustrator Judith Rossell returns with the breathtaking final adventure in this award-winning series.
