In her new book The Ghost at the Point Dorrie wonders if Aunt Gertrude’s stories are true. Is there really a ghost boy roaming the cliffs? The thought makes her shudder. But how else can she explain the shadowy figure she glimpsed moving through the stringybarks? And the other strange happenings around the point? Dorrie is determined to discover the truth – even if it means confronting a ghost.
