Soul Beach by Kate Harrison
Published by Orion Children's Books on 1st September 2011
When Alice Forster receives an email from her dead sister she assumes it must be a sick practical joke. Then an invitation arrives to the virtual world of Soul Beach, an idyllic online paradise of sun, sea and sand where Alice can finally talk to her sister again - and discover a new world of friendships, secrets and maybe even love . . . . But why is Soul Beach only inhabited by the young, the beautiful and the dead? Who really murdered Megan Forster? And could Alice be next? The first book in an intriguing and compelling trilogy centred around the mystery of Megan Forster's death.
I'm a fan of Kate Harrison's Secret Shopper series so I was really excited to hear that she'd penned her first YA novel. This is the first in a trilogy and it sounds brilliant. Harrison's writing is always engaging and entertaining and I have a feeling that I'm going to love 'Soul Beach'.
