A Girl Called Owl

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

Publisher: Macmillan

Thirteen-year-old Owl has never met her father, and her mum won't tell her who he is. But when Owl starts to find strange frost patterns on her skin, she is determined to find him. Through a strange new boy at her school named Alberic, she begins to learn that the fairy tales and magical world her mother told her about are real - and that her father is actually Jack Frost.

Owl soon finds herself in a cross between the human and fairy worlds, where her very existence isn't welcome, even by her own father.

This is a magical, wintery tale that explores the relationship between the human and fairy world, featuring well-known characters from folklore. Amy Wilson's debut novel is a perfect read for those who love wintery magic and a strong female character proving her place in the world.
