Beyond by Graham McNamee

Summary from Goodreads

What if your own shadow turned against you?

Jane is not your typical teen. She and her best friend Lexi call themselves the Creep Sisters.

Only Lexi knows why Jane is different from anyone else: Her own shadow seems to pull her into near-fatal accidents. Jane is determined to find out why these terrifying things happen, and to overcome her shadow enemy.

But her sleuthing with Lexi connects her own horrors to the secret history of a serial killer ...

Expected publication: January 3rd 2013 by Hodder Children's Books

My Review

Beyond really is a brilliant chill-fest of a book, it flows at a real break-neck pace and pulls the reader along for the roller coaster ride from the off! I loved the storyline, it is so unique and I fully enjoyed the full on creepy feeling the author had achieved here. Graham McNamee writes compellingly, I was entranced from start to finish and I even had goosebumps on occasion! I think the characters are awesome, best-friends Jane & Lexi 'THE CREEP SISTERS' have a great bond and are very quirky and down-to-earth! I fully enjoyed this super quick read, I only wish it was a little longer with a bit more details throughout, but all in all an unputdownable thrill ride that will make you think....

Jane is a bit different from your typical teenager, she has a real knack for cheating death. Only her best-friend Lexi knows all the details surrounding her creepy dealings! Jane's own shadow is out to get her, taking on a life of it's own and taking her along with it! When every attempt on her life fails her shadow takes her into darker territory - crossing her path with a cunning serial killer....

I'm trying not to give to much away as it would be too easy to really ruin it! The ending is action packed and is filled with twists, turns and shockers to keep you on the edge of your seat! This is a fabulous book from Graham McNamee and I will be definitely be on the lookout for more of his works in the future!
