by Year 9 Student, Anna Chater
To celebrate Christmas Eve, we are sharing ‘Shades of Christmas’ written by Anna Chater from Year 9. Anna was commissioned to write this eerie short story by Head of English, Ms Litterick. Her inspiration was her bookshelf in her bedroom. She wanted to combine the haunting quality of ghost stories that she has been influenced by, particularly Dickens’ nineteenth-century novella, A Christmas Carol.
We hope you enjoy reading it. Happy Christmas!
