The Ghost Station


Billie and her family move from the capital to a remote, coastal town. The only available house is a closed-down railway station, where no one has lived for years. At first, they love it, but it’s not long before weird things start to happen. Billie can hear strange sounds in the house, things move around in the middle of the night, and there’s a rumour that people have gone insane from living there…

Billie has to start a new school, and finds it difficult to make new friends. Luckily, she meets Rasmus, a mysterious boy who challenges her to try new things, and they become close friends. Billie confides in Rasmus, and together they start to investigate what happens at the station. Who is whistling on the other side of Billie’s wall? Why is the forest around the station named the Mourning Forest? And isn’t there something a bit strange about Rasmus?

The Ghost Station is the first book in a paranormal middle grade trilogy.

This first book in a new horror series is perfect for anyone who likes a proper ghost story. Anne Elvedal captures and holds the reader’s attention from first sentence … the excitement and tension lasts until the final sentence – a chilling cliffhanger before the next book.


… simply put, terrific … Energetic, solid and thorough. … perfect timing of absurd and transgressive elements. … full of surprises. Especially so when the book nears its end.
