The House with Chicken Legs
This book is about a girl named Marinka who is 12 years old and lives all around the world with her pet Jack, her grandmother and her house with chicken legs. She is training to guide spirits from this world onto the next and makes friends with the dead for one night before they move on the rest of their journey to the stars. She isn't allowed outside of the fence and her destiny, it seems all written for her but what will her desire for a friend drive her to do?
I really enjoyed this book. It is a heart warming tale of bravery, loss and change. The characters came straight off the page and personally as a reader I became quickly attached to the story. I am going to rate this book 4.5 out of 5 stars because of the powerful emotions and brilliant writing from Sophie Anderson.
