A quirky and mysterious tale of friends, fire-twirlers and ghosts from one of Australia's best storytellers.

Ever since Aurelie Bonhoffen was a child, she has juggled, played the dead girl on the ghost train and the back end of the cow in the marquee of Bonhoffen's Seaside Pier. She adores her family - especially her uncles Rolo and Rindolf - but on her twelfth birthday, she stumbles on her family's remarkable secret. It's hard to accept at first, but when her new friend at school reveals a dangerous plot against the pier, the secret helps Aurelie confront the greatest threat her family has ever faced.

About The Author

When Deb was young, she spent her time imagining she was on great adventures all over the world. When she grew older, she went on them for real. She slept beside alligators in Zaire, sailed down Venetian canals and was thrown in jail by heavily armed men in Nigeria before bribing her way out. After three years she came home and worked in kids' TV at Network TEN for seven years before leaving to write novels about a girl who goes on adventures all over the world. Deb is the author of the MAX REMY SUPERSPY and JASPER ZAMMIT (SOCCER LEGEND) series. Max Remy, with her spy partner Linden, fights bad guys from Hollywood to Venice and the heart of the Amazon jungle. The books are available in a few countries, but Deb is mostly chuffed that they're in Malta, where her father and grandfather were born. JASPER ZAMMIT (SOCCER LEGEND) was written with the help of soccer legend Johnny Warren, who sadly died before he could see the first book printed. It is about an 11-year-old called Jasper who dreams of being just such a legend.
