Shift is a psychological thriller and I couldn’t put it down. It is the story about Olive, and when the book begins we know that there has been some sort of incident (we are not sure what)  and she is trying to get back to some sort of normal routine at school by staying well away from “the queen bee” in class. But then strange and dangerous things start to happen. Are they real, or is Olive imaging them? As one character says:

“Some things aren’t straightforward. Not everything is true or false, real or imaginary, black or white. It’s not that simple.”

Get it from the library in print form, or download it, like I did, as an eBook at http://kingscollege.wheelers.co
