The Demon Headmaster #1: The Demon Headmaster

Look into my eyes…

Moving in with the Hunter family is the start of a new life for Dinah. But her new foster-brothers don’t want her there, and school is just plain weird! The kids are strangely well-behaved; in fact, they act just like robots. And why are they so keen to please the creepy headmaster? Ugh! But soon Dinah finds herself saying and doing things she has no power over. What’s going on? Together, Dinah, Lloyd and Harvey discover the headmaster’s evil secret. But can they stop his fiendish plan in time?
