Samenvatting

If Jordan Peele wrote a speculative YA it would be The Changing Man: a smart, pacy thriller perfect for fans of the dark academia of Ace of Spades and the creeping horror of Good Girls Die First.
A teenage girl is pulled into investigating the truth behind her new boarding school’s decades-old legend, in this debut speculative mystery by Tomi Oyemakinde.

Just because they let you in . . . it doesn’t mean they’ll let you out.

When Ife joins Nithercott School through its prestigious Urban Achievers Program, she knows immediately that she doesn’t fit. Wandering its echoing halls, she must fend off cruel taunts from the students and condescending attitudes from the teachers. When she finds herself thrown into detention for the foreseeable future, she strikes up an unlikely alliance with Ben, a troublemaker with an annoyingly cute smile. They’ve both got reasons to want to get out of Nithercott – Ben’s brother is missing, and no one seems to be bothering to find him.

For Ife, it’s just another strange element of this school that doesn’t care about its students. But as more and more people start going missing, including one of Ife’s only friends, she starts to feel haunted.

Who is the figure she’s started seeing in the shadowy halls, who looks mysteriously like herself? And is there any truth in to the strange urban legend that travels the school like mist . . . the legend of the Changing Man?

‘The Changing Man is compulsively readable and utterly thrilling . . . Tomi Oyemakinde is an exciting new voice’ – Katherine Webber, author of Twin Crowns
