Revealed: Blurb for Forthcoming SL Grey Novel, The New Girl

The WardThe MallAlert! A new horror novel by SL Grey (writing duo Sarah Lotz and Louis Greenberg), will be released internationally in October this year. Penguin Books is delighted to be the local publisher of The New Girl after publishing Grey’s first two books, The Mall and The Ward.

The latest thrilling novel is set in Johannesburg at the exclusive private school Crossley College, where a mysterious new pupil has a strange effect on those around her. To whet your appetite for the forthcoming book, read the blurb released by Atlantic Books:

Haunted by his past indiscretions and estranged from his family, Ryan Devlin is forced to work as a handyman at Crossley College, an exclusive private school in Johannesburg. But he’s losing the battle to suppress his growing fascination with a new pupil, a girl who seems to have a strange effect on the schoolchildren around her.

Tara Marais fills her days by volunteering at Crossley College’s library. Intrigued by Jane’s unusual behaviour and appearance, she suspects the new girl might be a neglected child.
