The game is called Beatie Bow, and the kids play it for the thrill of giving themselves a scare. It's Beatie Bow, risen from the dead!

When Abigail is drawn in, the game quickly changes from a harmless little scare to an extraordinary adventure, as she is transported to a place that is strangely familiar....

And in a Sydney she barely recognises, she'll meet the real Beatie Bow and the family that will change her life.

    " Such a gorgeous book. I love that it's set in The Rocks. I saw the movie as a child and have just requested to borrow it from the library so I'll watch it again soon, with Tassy. I remember I loved the movie. "

    " Wonderful to read as a girl, still wonderful to read as a grown-up. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sean Kennedy | 1/28/2014

    " Classic Australian YA novel about a young girl who is whisked back in time to 1800s Sydney. Although it suffers in the second half from a tacked-on love triangle and a rather convenient ending, there are some great moments in which Abigail suffers the plight shared by those finding themselves in a bildungsroman. Nice detail in the historical elements. "

    " I first read this book in year 8 (many years ago) And found it again in a second hand bookstore just recently. Was great to have a bit of a refresher on a fabulous Aussie classic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erin | 1/20/2014

    " As a girl/young teen I adored this book, I remember my copy of it was almost falling apart from well use, so when I walked past a second hand book store a couple of years ago and saw a beautiful hard back copy of it sitting in the window I had to have it. It was still a great story, yes my now grown up self found it a ridiculously easy read, not just because I am no longer its target audience but because I realised I still knew the story almost by heart, but it was still a very pleasant couple of hours none the less :) "

    " It is lovely to wander around The Rocks in Sydney once you've read this book. For me, the world of the 1800s comes to life. "

    " What a charming, yet raw novel! I really enjoyed this one, a quirky yet vividly realitic portrayal of a teenager's adventures in the Australian past of the rocks area, Sydney! Classic Australian literature from the late Ruth Parks. "
