Dear Amy by Helen Callaghan

9th August 2016

Dear Amy is the outstanding debut novel from East Anglian author Helen Callaghan. Margot Lewis is a teacher at a school and a young girl in her class, Katie Brown, has gone missing. Margot also runs an advice column, ‘Dear Amy’, in her local newspaper and she starts to receive desperate letters pleading for help from a girl who has been imprisoned and is in danger of her life. But they’re not from Katie. They’re from Bethan Avery – a local girl who went missing in strange circumstances years ago…

Accomplished, intelligent and astonishing, Dear Amy is a psychological thriller with a twist to end all twists. It sucks the reader in and holds on tight. Engaging writing telling a nailbiting and amazing tale, Dear Amy is a must-read debut.

Dear Amy,

I’ve been kidnapped by a strange man.
I don’t know where I am.

Please help me,
Bethan Avery
