Wish Me Dead- Helen Grant
Shy teenage girl Steffi lives and works with her parents in their family bakery, situated in a small and cosy German village.
Steffi and her friends venture into the forest, and to a house that is at the centre of vicious and disturbing village rumours. The group decide to test the belief that leaving a name written somewhere in the house causes a witch, the inhabitor, to kill that same person. In doing so, a terrifying chain of deaths occur, and every death is at the request of Steffi.
The surreal and gruesome events of the story leave Steffi trapped in a scary and dangerous situation with no clear end for her or the reader.
