Tom's Midnight Garden meets The Secret Garden in this mystical, classic-feeling adventure!

'A beautiful book that touches on friendship and the unbreakable bond between a protective parent and her child.' THE SUN

'Elegant, assured, sad and hilarious' GUARDIAN

Jess is allergic to the sun. She lives in a world of shadows and hospitals, peeking at the other children in the playground from behind curtains. Her only friend is a boy in a coma, to whom she tells stories.

One night she sneaks out to explore the empty playground she's longed to visit, where she discovers a beautiful impossiblity: a magical garden wrought of ice.

But Jess isn't alone in this fragile, in-between place ...

We're launching a startling debut talent into the middle-grade market in this classic-feeling magical-realist story, full of wonder and warmth.

A tale of loneliness, friendship and the healing power of love, set between the real, contemporary world and world of ice and magic - sure to capture the imaginations of readers.

Shadows of classics such as Tom's Midnight Garden and The Secret Garden, contemporary setting yet utterly timeless in feel and theme.
