“You couldn’t trust people. Dogs snarled before they bit you, but people often smiled.”

I picked this up simply because the cover and title were interesting, having no idea that this was actually a children’s book! However it was very enjoyable and one of the most appealing and unique stories I’ve read in a while.

The main character was strong and entertaining, without being your typical naïve beauty. Bear was also a fun addition. It was refreshing to read a YA book that had no romance. Not everything needs to revolve around a very old vampire seducing a very young child!… (més)

To anyone that follows me---READ. THIS. BOOK.

The story blew me away and I can't explain, because to do so is to spoil elements of the book.

Just read it and don't read any book descriptions.
Trust me on this.....

This is a 2024 Lone Star novel.

You'll meet Nettle's brother, a bird, who helps them as needed. They run about meeting different people, unravelling curses, and try to solve the overall mystery.… (més)

For younger readers who are ok with creepy things—the story of a young boy forced into his father’s job of ferrying the dead’s shoes to an island, so they won’t become dangerous ghosts. It’s got Hardinge’s endless imagination (the headless birds are quite something) and gentle illustrations.
