Apparently, school is supposed to be the best time of your life. Obviously, whoever believes that has never tried to rescue a ghost and study for mid-terms.

Bea's back!

But life at the Academy isn't all it's cracked up to be. Being the only fairy is bad enough, but then the rumours of a ghost spread, setting everybody on edge. And when people are afraid, it's never a good time to be the odd one out.

So Bea is determined to keep her head down and not, absolutely not, draw attention to herself. That is, until she comes face to face with the so-called ghost. Bea realises that things at the Academy are a lot more complicated than they first appear - and that's before an unwelcome face turns up begging a favour...

Exactly how far will Bea go to do the right thing - and is she prepared to finally meet the fearsome, three-headed Beast to do it?

About the Author

Faith is a geek and basically grew up in a comic book and collectables shop. As a result, she has a love-hate relationship with the phrase 'bagged and boarded' and has seen more Beanie Babies than she ever would have wished to! She wrote her undergraduate dissertation on Buffy The Vampire Slayer and has a PhD in English Literature.

She writes fantasy and SF novels and has been compared to Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman - high praise indeed!
