A Flash of Fireflies (Paperback)Aisha Bushby (author)
As Hazel struggles to adjust to a new life in England, she discovers that the idyllic surroundings of her aunt's cottage house a wealth of sinister creatures in this immersive children's novel from the author of A Pocketful of Stars.
A magical middle grade book about family, friendship and finding your place, with a delicate touch of magic. Perfect for 10-12 year olds and fans of Jacqueline Wilson, Michelle Harrison and Kiran Millwood-Hargrave and The Girl Who Speaks Bear.

But as Hazel struggles to deal with the challenges of the everyday world - making friends, missing her family - she also learns that every fairy tale has a dark side. And there are terrifying creatures that lurk in the shadows...
