The Book That Made Me: Philip Reeve 16/10/19
The Darkest Part of the Forest
Hazel and her brother Ben live in the town of Fairfold where humans and faerie folk live alongside each other. In the woods a sleeping boy with pointed horns has lain in a glass coffin for years, never waking. Until one day he does and everything changes. Hazel knows how dangerous the Folk can be and tries to remember her childhood days pretending to be a knight fighting evil. But this time things are more complicated and, not quite sure who she can trust, can she really be the hero that's needed?
With a refreshing spin on the traditional roles and full of sinister undertones and dark magic, this is a bewitching and exciting modern fairy tale for this generation of readers of YA fiction.
