Bea has started to hear and see things that no one else can - creatures, voices, visions. Then strangers visit Bea and tell her she is different: she has the rare powers of a witch. They warn her she is being hunted. Her parents think she is hallucinating and needs help. All Bea wants to do is get on with her life, and to get closer to Lars, the mysterious young man she has met at the skate park. But her life is in danger, and she must break free. The question is - who can she trust? Carnegie Medal-winner Melvin Burgess returns with a powerful, thrilling fantasy for young adults about magic, myth and following your instincts.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Extraordinary" -- Simon Mayo * Simon Mayo's Books of the Year podcast *
"Rich, twisty storytelling ... Written with observation and skill" -- Nicolette Jones * Sunday Times *
"Burgess is a master storyteller" -- Alex O'Connell * The Times, Children's Book of the Week *
"The godfather of young adult fiction" * BBC Front Row *
"Melvin Burgess is an original, experimental voice and in his first YA novel for five years he draws on the rich tradition of British fantasy rooted in landscape and folklore" -- Fiona Noble * Observer *
"Burgess's work remains strong meat, sometimes overwhelming; abduction, seduction, deceit, coercion and the limits of moral responsibility all test the reader's tolerance of trauma to breaking point in this arresting coming-of-age tale." -- Imogen Russell Williams * Guardian *
"Tackles issues of control, identity, personal freedom and trust through the medium of folklore and magic... An arresting, high-octane adventure" -- Sally Morris * Daily Mail *
"...an uncompromising look at issues in a way that doesn't patronise young adult readers. A tough page-turner." -- Jane Graham * Big Issue - Kid's Books of 2018 *

“Disappointing”

This book was a huge disappointment. I couldn't connect with the main character Bea. Lots of scenes felt rushed and lacking in emotional depth. The skater boy was introduced with a couple of lines and felt... More
