A thrilling, funny and scary gaming adventure, perfect for kids aged 8+

Gaming, adventure and an incredible friendship combine in this one-of-a-kind, heart-pounding, spine-tingling adventure that takes place in the space of a single night. Eerie, exciting, funny and deeply moving.

A super fun, thrilling, heart-warming page-turner, unlike anything we've read before! We'll be recommending this to all the Minecraft fans in our lives.


Eleven-year-old Lori is home alone for the first time in her life, and she’s immediately done all the things she’s TOTALLY NOT allowed to do:

1. Turned the heating up to the max.
2. Built a GIANT blanket fort in the living room.
3. Switched on Voxminer, aka the greatest game in the history
of the universe.

But quickly, Lori realises something is wrong. She can hear strange whispers coming from the screen – and soon, they’re in the house with her. Could it be Voxminer’s most terrifying legend: Shade Girl?

Trapped in her home as the doors and windows start to vanish and her phone goes dead, Lori must use all her bravery, wits, gaming skills – and the love and deep bond she shares with her BFF, Shoelace – to survive until Mum gets home…

Max Boucherat (he/they) was born and raised in Cardiff, gained an MA in Writing for Young People from Bath Spa University and now lives with their wife in a mercifully ghost-free house in the middle of Caerphilly, South Wales. The Last Life of Lori Mills is Max’s love letter to both horror and videogames, and the book their ghost and game-obsessed younger self would have loved to read.
