The Book That Made Me: David Almond 20/03/19
Midnight For Charlie Bone
Charlie is unnerved to discover that he can hear people in photographs talking. His aunts take an unhealthy interest in his gift and send him to the notorious Bloor's Academy, where he meets other children with 'endowments' (magical powers).
What happened to the girl in the photograph and why is everyone so interested in the metal case that Charlie has been given to look after? Charlie and his friends will need all their wits about them if they are to unravel the mystery before it is too late.
This gripping and imaginative fantasy has a fascinating cast of characters, and a tantalising 'to be continued' at the end will leave readers desperate for more.
