Description

Imagine meeting Henry VIII and finding he's madly in love with you! One lazy summer afternoon Abigail persuades Lauren and Marina to experiment with a homemade ouija board. The girls don't seriously expect the seance to work and are shocked when the glass starts moving, but that's nothing to the shock they get when they realise they have summoned up the spirit of a long-dead randy royal - Henry VIII. The trouble really begins when Henry declares his love for the sultry Marina and starts behaving in a seriously sinister manner. Jealous and possessive, Henry sets about controlling the girls' lives and making a right royal nuisance of himself...Friendship, first love and men behaving badly - this is a fantastically funny chick-lit read.show more

Back cover copy

'You're not scared are you, Abbie?' 'Not exactly scared. Why should I be? It was my idea. I mean, if he suddenly materialised right here on the table, then I'd be scared. As long as he stays in the glass, we're all right.' It only started out as a game: three teen girls, one homemade ouija board and an unusual way of spending a hot summer afternoon. But when Marina, Abbie and Lauren discover they've summoned up the spirit of a long-dead ransy royal, the 'Henry Game' suddenly turns into something more sinister. Are the girls in danger of losing their heads? An hilarious and shocking new novel that will keep you on the edge of your seat!show more
