A Skinful of Shadows

by Frances Hardinge
£7.99   paperback  Pan Macmillan (2018)

A Skinful of Shadows by Frances Hardinge Shortlisted for Waterstones Book of the Year 2017.
 
Frances Hardinge weaves a dark, otherworldly tale in A Skinful of Shadows, her first book since the Costa Award-winning The Lie Tree.
 
When a creature dies, its spirit can go looking for somewhere to hide.
Some people have space inside them, perfect for hiding.

 
Makepeace, a courageous girl with a mysterious past, defends herself nightly from the ghosts which try to possess her. Then a dreadful event causes her to drop her guard for a moment.
 
And now there’s a ghost inside her.
 
The spirit is wild, brutish and strong, but it may be her only defence in a time of dark suspicion and fear. As the English Civil War erupts, Makepeace must decide which is worse: possession – or death.
 
Recommended for ages 12+
