Goodreads says:

The second novel from the author of The Chalk Man, about a teacher with a hidden agenda who returns to settle scores at a school he once attended, only to uncover a darker secret than he could have imagined.

I didn't want to admit, even to myself, that sometimes I was scared to death of my own little sister.
