Book Box Club July 2018

Hello readers,

I’m so excited I got my Book Box Club box (I’m not sponsored - I think I have to say that) The theme for Julys box was Witchcraft and I honestly thought the whole box was stupidly cute and again I loved every bit of it. The theme for next month is… Tech Tribes


What was inside the box?

The book
The Lost Witch by Melvin Burgess

I saw this book at YALC and put it on my list to buy so this was a brilliant box for me. I was lucky enough to meet Melvin at YALC and like everyone else was so lovely (I desperately want to get back into the YALC bubble)

Bea has started to hear and see things that no one else can – creatures, voices, visions. Then strangers visit Bea and tell her she is different: she has the rare powers of a witch. They warn her she is being hunted. Her parents think she is hallucinating and needs help. All Bea wants to do is get on with her life, and to get closer to Lars, the mysterious young man she has met at the skate park. But her life is in danger, and she must break free. The question is – who can she trust?

Carnegie Medal-winner Melvin Burgess returns with a powerful, thrilling fantasy for young adults about magic, myth and following your instincts.
