By Melvin Burgess

Bea is being hunted, and she doesn't know whom to trust, or where to run. Because Bea is different - she has the powers of a witch. Carnegie Medal-winning author Melvin Burgess returns with a powerful, thrilling fantasy for young adults.

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.
