Tan’s house is full of dead people’s stuff and now her Dad has brought home a freaky, old tram that might be jinxed! It even has “follow me through the shadow” painted on it!
Bill Brodie was the person who owned the Tram and when he passed away people sold his stuff. Tan’s dad bought the Tram from Bill Brodie’s deceased estate (dead people’s stuff is sold at a deceased estate). Tan’s friend Gloria knows all about the Tram and they decide to search for the answers.
The first person they could think of was Mr Drake. Mr Drake owns the town’s junkyard and Tan thought if Bill Brodie got the Tram from anywhere it would have come from the junkyard. Tan found out that the Tram’s name is Miss Havisham. He becomes even more curious than before and wants to discover why the Tram is called Miss Havisham and why the Tram is jinxed.
I really liked this book and thought that it was an exciting read with twists and turns at every chapter!.
Thank you to our friends at Harper Collins Australia for our review copy of this book.
