My Name is Mina

(7 reviews with an average rating of 4 out of 5)

The prequel to Skellig

Publisher: Hodder

Review

Through a collection of stories, journal entries and meandering thoughts, Mina tells the story of her life so far; of grief, marginalisation, bravery, self-knowledge and love.

Revisiting a character he first introduced in his bestseller, Skellig, over 12 years ago, David Almond explores Mina's background and eccentricities to reveal a complex and resilient spirit who is as endearing as she is infuriating.
