This is a growing up story with a difference, set as it is between the real world as we know it, and a supernatural realm of elemental beings. The heroine, Owl, comes to the realisation that she is different from other girls as she struggles with her identity and that of her hitherto unknown father. Her artist mother's strange tales start to take on new meanings and everything changes for Owl when a new boy starts at school. Owl's friend, Mallory , has her own problems to deal with at home, but shows the meaning of true friendship and loyalty as she stands beside Owl through everything.
I found this a page turner because I wanted to know what happened to Owl, and that has to be one of the crucial elements of any novel. The writing was really good, especially for a first book, with parts being truly excellent.
I recommend this book as a great read about friendship and identity, for the 9 plus reader.
Many thanks to the author and NetGalley for allowing me to read this pre-publication. ( )
