Nominated for an Australian Shadow Award for Best Novel 2019
Mysterious disappearances, a battle for the spotlight and nightmares. It’s just another day at Beacon Hill High School.
Auditions for Macbeth are over, and on the bus ride home, a mysterious driver gives sixteen-year-old Violet and her friends’ three strange predictions:
One of the girls will shine like a star.
One will invite darkness into her breast.
One will depart forever.
Please, how cliché. Besides, Violet clearly knows that she’s the star.
But when she isn’t cast as Lady Macbeth and strange things begin to unfold, and the predictions begin to come true, Violet can’t help to wonder which one will apply to her. Determined to be the one that will shine like a star, Violet will do whatever it takes to get the leading role – no matter the consequence.
Modern-day Shakespeare meets supernatural mystery with this nail-biting young adult horror by Madeleine D’Este.
