Mrs Pollard, St John Fisher RC High School

A Skinful of Shadows

Another great fantasy read on a ghostly theme from Frances Hardinge!The story really got going after Makepeace gets to Grizehayes and realises what her true family background is and the implications for her future. Set in the time of Charles I; this story links tweaked history with witchcraft and ghosts. The pace accelerates after the first few chapters and the story really draws you in. My only criticism is that the book should have ended halfway down page 413 where there was an ideal closing line and not introduced another character for just two pages after. End on a high!
