A moving, life-affirming and unforgettable story about love and forgiveness – an unapologetically read for anyone who (secretly) believes in true love.
10. The Shadow Queen
A fairytale for the 21st century girl – there are no damsels in distress here. Instead, it’s up to the princess to save herself, her country – and her true love. A great read for anyone who loves a traditional story with a twist.
Nominated for the Carnegie Medal 2015, this is a deeply moving story of love and loss; with the most beautifully-drawn, flawed, loveable main character we’ve come across in a long time.
12. Stealing Snow
The next big thing in YA fiction, and a brand-new heroine to root for. Snow’s spent her entire life in an institution. She always thought she was crazy – until the door to another world was left open. Snow queen, or broken girl?
