Product description

Always kicked around, always ignored, geeky Robert secretly longs to find his voice. Then he tangles with school bully Niker, and finds himself facing a terrifying dare: to spend a night in spooky old Chance House, where a young boy died in tragic circumstances. But Niker’s challenge isn’t only frightening. It leads Robert into a shocking journey of discovery. On that terrible and magical night, can Robert finally turn the tables on his tormenter? Will freedom be waiting on the other side?

Winner – Blue Peter Book of the Year Award 2002.

    This book is about a boy called Robert but everyone calls him Norbert. It is intriguing and will make you laugh and make you cry. The secret is not revealed until the last page! It is the best book ever!!
