Josie and her friends Margot and Wesley form their own Scout group. When they begin their Camping Badge they are drawn to an abandoned factory, where they find an ancient television, two tatty armchairs and an old photograph. What is this? Who, or what, lives here – and why? From Sharna Jackson, the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize winning author of High Rise Mystery, comes another intriguing mystery adventure with themes of social activism and caring for your community.  

Sharna Jackson is an award winning author of books, games and scripts for children and young people including the multi-award winning High Rise Mystery series starring the schoolgirl detectives, Nik and Norva. Her stand out debut High Rise Mystery won numerous awards including the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize in 2020.
