Lighting Falls is a fantastical story of ghosts and friendship, with lyrical writing full of heart from Amy Wilson, 'the rising star of children's fantasy'. Valerie has been living at Lightning Falls nearly all her life. She's perfectly happy helping Meg and the rest of the family to haunt the guests who come to stay there - it is the Ghost House after all. One night, she sees a strange boy, Joe, up on the viaduct. There she discovers that beneath the river is a bridge - one that will take her to the world of Orbis, which Joe claims is her real home. A world that is under threat. Their magical anchors are being stolen, causing the power to seep out of their world, and Joe has journeyed to Lightning Falls to win them back. Plunged into a dangerous adventure, as the link between the two worlds begins to crumble into star showers, Valerie is forced to confront the truth about herself . . .
