Waterstones Says

Thoroughly charming and endlessly intriguing, Bower’s accomplished debut combines a magical mystery with a heartfelt account of adoption and trying to fit in. Written with grace and flair, School for Nobodies exerts a luminous hold on the imagination from start to finish.

Until she was 10, Flynn didn't even know her real name. Her adoptive parents have always kept her past a secret, but one mysterious note transforms her world and sets her on a path to discover who she really is. How did she get the burn that covers most of her face? And could she really have a twin?

Packed off to a boarding school for misfits, Flynn tries to adjust to the unfair rules and stomach-churning soup while making friends with her unusual classmates. All the while, she receives more cryptic messages that slowly bring her closer to her true identity.

Bursting with magic, intrigue and humour, School for Nobodies is a delightful debut about the beauty of not fitting in.

“My Favourite Book”

I really like this book because at the start Flynn's life isn't very exiting and her only friend is a tree. By the age of ten she didn't even know her real name! Her adoptive parents never say anything... More
