A Skinful of Shadows
A Skinful of Shadows by Frances Hardinge is a compelling read for book-lovers aged 12-15, about struggling to accept who you are. The book is about a young girl called Makepeace who knows there is something different about her, and desperately wants to know more of her history. The plot follows her as she makes discoveries, finds allies and comes to accept herself as she is.
The beginning doesn't draw you in very well, so many people would quickly get bored, but when you really get into it then it is very hard to put down. I would say, stick with it and it is worth it. This book is very unique and unlike anything I have ever read. I would recommend it for fans of fantasy and spirits.
