We love to celebrate the best in children and young people's literature so each month we choose a

Book of a Month to share with you!

Our current Book of the Month is

Seaglass by Eloise Williams

 

Lark struggles when her family and their friends go on holiday for the autumn half term. Her mother is ill, her little sister has stopped speaking and she has fallen out with her best friend.  Is a girl in a green dress following her in the fog? Or is her sister playing tricks on her? When a local woman tells her 'the girl' comes to take sisters, Lark is the only one who can save her family.  

 

Seaglass is a wonderfully atmospheric, perfectly paced ghost story combined with a narrative about family and a really positive emphasis on the importance of being truthful with the ones you love. Publishing this month from Firefly Press, read a full review here.
