Lisa is sure she has seen a ghost in her mother's bedroom mirror, but who can she tell? Her grandparents are oddly secretive about ghosts and the past, her mother seems distant since her recent marriage, and Lisa definitely can't confide in her new stepsister and stepbrother - she loathes them! As Lisa explores further she unravels some truths about her family's history and begins to look at herself and those closest to her in a new light.
Catherine Storr was born and lived most of her life in London. She practised medicine for fifteen years, but never forgot her ambition to be a writer. She wrote her first children's books for her three daughters and many went on to become classics. Marianne Dreams was made into a film, The Paper House, in 1990. She loved writing for children because they understand that fantasy and reality are not opposites - but different ways of looking at the same thing.
