I Meet Malorie Blackman & Patrick Ness

Say Her Name by James Dawson (Review)

Bobbie Rowe is not someone to get scared easily, or to believe in ghosts. Bobbie and her friends are at an all-girls boarding school, it’s Halloween, the girls have sneaked in some local boys, and so naturally they carry out a dare where Bobbie, her best friend Naya and a cute boy Caine say Bloody Mary five times in front of a candlelit mirror. 486 more words
