Crow Boy – Philip Caveney


I saw this on twitter this week and it looks so spooky and brilliant. It comes out in November from Fledgling Press and sounds great, check out the summary below. 

Young Tom Afflick has never felt so alone. His parents have split up and his mother has relocated him, hundreds of miles away from his home in Manchester, to the unfamiliar city of Edinburgh. At his new school, Tom is simply known as ‘The Manc’ — a blow-in, an outsider.

On a routine school trip to the historic site of Mary King’s Close, Tom follows the ghostly figure of a young girl — only to find himself transported back in time to 1645, the year of the Edinburgh plague.

Apprenticed against his will to a violent plague doctor, Tom needs to use all of his modern-day skills in order to survive, while he desperately searches for a way back to his own time.

Whats Left of Me – Kat Zhang


I shared my thoughts on this book last week but if you missed my review of this awesome book check it out here. MacMillan have just released this trailer and its brilliant, fits the mood of the book so well. 

I should not exist. But I do.

Eva and Addie started out the same way as everyone else—two souls woven together in one body, taking turns controlling their movements as they learned how to walk, how to sing, how to dance. But as they grew, so did the worried whispers. Why aren’t they settling? Why isn’t one of them fading? The doctors ran tests, the neighbors shied away, and their parents begged for more time. Finally Addie was pronounced healthy and Eva was declared gone. Except, she wasn’t . . .

For the past three years, Eva has clung to the remnants of her life. Only Addie knows she’s still there, trapped inside their body. Then one day, they discover there may be a way for Eva to move again. The risks are unimaginable-hybrids are considered a threat to society, so if they are caught, Addie and Eva will be locked away with the others. And yet . . . for a chance to smile, to twirl, to speak, Eva will do anything.
