A Girl Called Owl, by Amy Wilson


It’s bad enough having a mum dippy enough to name you Owl, but when you’ve got a dad you’ve never met, a best friend who needs you more than ever and a new boy at school giving you weird looks, there’s not a lot of room for much else. So when Owl starts seeing strange frost patterns on her skin, she’s tempted to just burrow down under the duvet and forget all about it. Could her strange new powers be linked to her mysterious father? And what will happen when she enters the magical world of winter for the first time? A glittering story of frost and friendship, with writing full of magic and heart, A Girl Called Owl is a stunning debut about family, responsibility and the beauty of the natural world. PRAISE FOR A GIRL CALLED OWL “This debut is a sparklingly frosty read, full of feisty characters, myth and mystery” Daily Mail “A perfect read for those who love wintery magic and a strong female character proving her place in the world.” BookTrust
