November 2017 Debut of the Month

In a nutshell: exciting, original fantasy adventure

Unusually, Jessica Townsend’s book opens with the funeral of her central character. No-one seems particularly upset, not even her family, and that’s because Morrigan Crow is a Cursed Child held responsible for any and all mishaps and was expected to die before her 12th birthday. Fortunately for Morrigan and readers, she has been mysteriously saved from her gloomy family and swept into a wonderful new world by one Jupiter Crow, magic-maker, hotel-owner, umbrella-flyer. All sorts of tests await Morrigan in Nevermoor, and she faces them all with intelligence, good-humour and, thanks to her new extended family, the resilience that comes from knowing you are loved. There are echoes of other favourite fantasy adventures in the book, but Nevermoor and its inhabitants are still wildly original and this is an impressively constructed, lively, satisfying story.

One to recommend to fans of Harry Potter or of Katherine Rundell’s Rooftoppers.
