Book Spotlight ~ Guilt Trip by Maggy Farrell

Guilt TripGuilt Trip

Genre: YA Paranormal Thriller

The voice on the wind. 
The presence in her dreams. 
The feelings she can’t control. 

Sixteen-year-old Melissa has been diagnosed with Survivor Syndrome, the guilt of having escaped from a car crash in which her mother died. 

However, when on holiday in the rugged moorlands of the English countryside, she begins to see and hear things she can’t explain. And so she must ask herself: are these also symptoms of her illness? Or are they signs that her mother is reaching out to her from beyond the grave?

'It comes to me in my dreams, over and over. Intruding. Invading. Haunting.

In slow motion, almost frame-by-frame, the scene unfolds.

The sharp bend.

The black ice.

Mum unable to control the wheel as we skid across the road, crashing through the fence, careering down the bank, the car flipping over onto its side as we descend.

Mum is below me now as we hurtle into the deadly-cold river which quickly steals through the cracks in the windscreen.

It isn’t a lot of water: the river isn’t deep, and we’re not far in. But it’s enough.

“Help me!”

I am aware of her thrashing about, struggling to unfasten her seatbelt.

But it’s jammed.

And so I watch as the water begins to pool around her, filling up the spaces - the air pockets - gradually taking her into its freezing, smothering embrace.'
