Shift – Em Bailey

ShiftOlive Corbett is not crazy. Not anymore. She takes her medication and tries to stay under the radar at school. That is until the arrival of new girl Miranda Vaile amid a swirl of rumours. Did she really kill her own parents? Olive can’t help but watch as Miranda, at first a withdrawn, sickly creature who fades into the background, slowly becomes more noticeable, more popular, more beautiful, more like Olive’s ex-friend Katie. Olive starts to suspect that there is something sinister, almost parasitic, about Miranda. Either Olive is losing her grip on reality, or Miranda Vaile is stealing Katie’s life. But who would ever believe crazy Olive and what if Olive is the next target?
Shift is a chilling psychological thriller about identity, loss, and toxic friendship that will keep you guessing until the final pages.
