Bad Little Girl

A Gripping Psychological Thriller with a Brilliant Twist

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


‘I’m not safe – you have to help me…’
Little Lorna Bell is from a notorious family on a rundown estate. Everyone thinks she’s a nasty piece of work. The schoolchildren call her a thief. But Lorna’s hair is matted, her shoes pinch her feet and school teacher Claire Penny can’t help herself; some kids just need a bit more support, a bit more love, than the rest.
As the bond between teacher and pupil grows stronger, Claire sees Lorna’s bruises, and digs to uncover the disturbing tale behind them. Heartbroken, Claire knows she has to act. She must make Lorna safe. 
Just when Claire thinks she has protected Lorna, a chance encounter brings enigmatic stranger Marianne Cairns into their lives. Marianne seems generous and kind but there is something about her story that doesn’t quite add up. Why does she feel so at home, and why is Lorna suddenly so unsettled? 
Claire has risked everything to save Lorna. But what can save Claire from the shocking truth?
An utterly unputdownable and darkly compelling read that will have fans of The Girl on the Train, The Sister, and Gone Girl absolutely hooked.

Interesting read

Great book loved reading it!! But Claire went seeking this left herself opened to be minulated by an 11 year old in real life would never have allowed her in my own house to start with further more why would any adult just up & leave with a child like wasn’t to say clare was mentally unstable she was a very smart woman and for a child to boss you like that and that isn’t even your own no sorry don’t get that at all and from moment I heard fire I new it was lorna doing it all plus nedacation new that 2 but I’m a reader and can go in2 the story this knowledge sometimes spoils my ending but a great wee book and great read anyone that reads it will injoy it I just got a bit frustrated with it at how stupid they were making clare look yet she a teacher and smart and not as dum as the book made her out in hindsight it wudnt happen in the real world and also the basement seen that comming 2 lol
