Set at the seaside, this atmospheric mystery-adventure is narrated by eleven year old, Ellie Booton, a quirky kid who has never quite fitted in. Ellie’s world becomes complicated when the lighthouse flashes a coded message at the same time that her best friend, Elsie, becomes the focus of a bully. A sense of loyalty serves to isolate Ellie and her friends even more, unwittingly putting them all in harm’s way.
This thought provoking, paced, and often funny story sees Ellie and her friends struggle to recognise the signs of danger and of redemption, while the adults don’t seem to have their act together either.
Where do the grown-ups fit in to this mystery? Will Ellie and her friends solve the lighthouse code before it’s too late?
