In the book, Ghost Ship, by Dietlof Reiche, the main character, Vicky, is an average twelve year old living in a town that has two main attractions; the bay and the Ye Olde Seashell Room. The bay is special because half of it recedes every day to expose mudflats, while the other half remains filled. The Seashell Room is special because its walls are all covered in seashells and it contains the head of a figure head that was part of a ship named the Storm Goddess, which sank to the bottom of the ocean with many dark secrets.
